Shall we see after we've bowled? Moeen has done very well with the bat and there's no law against him being good with the ball. I like Rashid but I think he's a player who keeps improving the longer he's around the squad but not in the team. My suspicion is that he would not prove a consistently effective test bowler (although I also think it's a real shame that he didn't get a go in the Caribbean).
The Ali fun is over, sadly. Good innings but didn't ever really look like he was in for a long time rather than a good time this morning. Not complaining or anything. Would be nice if the final pair could thrash a few more.
