Unless the swing comes in to play which can happen in SL at times, this will come down to how we handle Molly. I would like to think we can bat against Rashid who is a decent spinner but Moeen Ali can be a handful, particularly on a friendly wicket. On the flip side can the Poms handle our spinners? Doubtful so bring it on and looking for a series win.
