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
