Not much practice for Joe & Jonny with the pink ball.
In fact not much practice with the red ball either prior to the test next week.
Root has faced 58 balls of red & pink ball cricket since the India test series before Christmas.
Jonny has faced only faced 29 balls. 87 balls between them in over 6 months.
What kind of preparation is that for the test series??
More than most county cricketers have before the first game of a season in April!
But yes, the foolishness of scheduling, player releases and experimentation and rotation backfiring
