Then I look at the fast bowling choices
Overton - says the Test has come to early for him
Woakes - minor side strain but will play the ODIs
Ball - he is in the ODI team
Wood - bowled 16 overs in the tour match, in ODI team.
Couldn't Wood even bowl 15 overs? I think we will only bowl once anyway and follow on.
I believe Garton is out there too as a net bowler if things get really desperate.
