If it is a truer wicket, then it’ll spin less but if it is like the last Test, then it isn’t going to matter what colour the ball is, it’ll spin! The seam does stay nice and pronounced so there does seem to be a bit on offer for all bowlers.
Jonny Bairstow and Mark Wood have now joined up with the squad and it’s been great to have them back. They’ve definitely brought some energy to the group having been back at home and had some time to refresh, mentally more than anything else.
We’ve been in a bubble since January 2 now so it is good when you get new guys coming back. We’ve had a few coaches coming back in as well, to change things up a bit.

Just finally, one issue since moving to Ahmedabad is that the wi-fi isn’t great. I’m not a gamer and it’s fine for WhatsApp and Netflix so that’s me sorted but for the boys are who are into their gaming, they need stronger wi-fi.
Speaking to Stokesy the other day, he seems like a bit of an expert in the old wi-fi and he has used his contacts to get hold of some dongles or something to help them out – they’ve come and tested the internet strength and all sorts!
Thankfully, they have sorted it all now so they can crack on with their Call of Duty. Crisis averted!
