Not the best start but Bell and KP didn't set the world alight either. Early days but a huge challenge opening over there

Noticed that but spin is the key over there and KP could be useful in that department

swann has flown home due to an illness in the famiy, can only hope things arent serious and he can return.

on a side note greaheme smith has signed for surrey, big coup. never mind as a captain, imagine the runs he will rack up.

Spin's certainly gonna be the key this series, and of course the dust bowl pitches after three days
