“They obviously played quite well towards the end. Thought there was good spin and nice reverse in the middle so that would be helpful tomorrow. The slower balls spun a bit more than the rest but the build up to that ball has to be good. We need to bowl in the good areas and wait for the pitch of do the rest. Need to stay patient and let the pitch do the rest which is something Saqlain talks about as well. [On being not out for 99 overnight] I thought of getting it yesterday but was happy to have got it today. I slept well, wasn’t too fussed and was happy to contribute to the team’s cause. I was a bit lethargic to get going at the start but I thought I used my feet well and the singles were there for me to take. There were times I wanted to have a hack at times but I have been trying to practice as much as I can. [On his dismissal] He was bowling well and I thought I needed to see him through. The mindset was negative probably but I find him [Shami] quite hard to face.” Moeen Ali Said.
