I hope they spin a lot more for everybody. This was quite slow, a dead sort of pitch. If you look at the previous Test matches here they've all been spinning big and probably not as flat as this wicket. Predictions over England's likely XI for the series opener seemed trickier to make by the end of play than they had been on before hand.

Spinner Jack Leach was a surprising absentee but he, along with seamer Olly Stone, may have benefited from sitting out in unfriendly conditions. They may find themselves vying for one shirt in the Test side but none stood out from the pack, Woakes the only wicket-taker of the three but also the most expensive. Moeen's fellow spinner Adil Rashid, meanwhile, again looked less confident with red ball in hand after a highly impressive limited-overs campaign. The wicketkeeping issue, muddied somewhat by Jonny Bairstow's ankle injury, also took a curious development as Jos Buttler, Ben Foakes and Ollie Pope each took a turn with the gloves.
Two spinners? What seamers are going to play?
Do you need pace or control? England will bat for a full day on Wednesday, regardless of wickets lost, with a chance to see a new-look top three of Rory Burns, Keaton Jennings and Joe Denly.

T he rain in June has left some pitches under-prepared through no fault of groundstaff but with better weather forecast for the final two weeks of the tournament the situation could change, particularly as all knockout matches will be played on new pitches. The pitches have caught England by surprise. They have built their strategy for four years on blasting high scores and have struggled to adapt. But the scores have not been as high as they have been over the last two years in England. Yes the overheads were different. They will also assess their injured players.
