Fantastic bowling so far. Root will be vital here, the match is ideally suited to a nudger and nurdler.

Yes but lack of footwork was obvious.

Henry bowled the ball with perfect line and length and left the batsman in two minds. That delivery would have got most international openers out in all forms of cricket.
