Small ground, flat pitch. Looks like another rest day for Rashid.

Looking at the other Yorkies, Root should be back, Willey is unfit.

Plunkett should get a game, doubt if Bairstow will.

We'll find out soon.

My guess.

Not my favourite form of the game but if I'm honest just happy to have some cricket to watch.

I thought a ruling had been brought in by the ICC re compulsory wearing of helmets. Dhoni took his helmet off today during this match!!!

So Adil plays, but didn't bowl. England showed they are Yorkshire in disguise. 40+ for no wicket, then the opposition brings on the spinner & 2 are out in an over.

New ICC rules I think mean if you do wear a helmet it must be up to the new standard in regard to neck protection.

If you opt not to wear a helmet that's o.k too, depending on what your national board says.

Sounds crazy but Dhoni and Chris Gayle are the only two I can think of that take off their helmets when spinners are on.

Don't know what to think about them playing Rashid and not using him. I suppose his fielding and catching is slightly better than Ball's.

He must have been picked for plan B which they didn't need because plan A worked very well.

Believe the ICC have said that if a batsman wears a helmet it must be of a certain safety standard but the wearing of a helmet isn't compulsory.

Slightly different for English players who must wear helmets under the ECB regulations. The safety standard of these helmets is the same the ICC are introducing in their regulations.

Excellent performance by England today, bowled really well and then the undoubted class of Morgan and Root shone through with the bat.
