The pitch at Headingley has been a savior for batters. The batters enjoy playing on this surface as the ball comes nicely onto the bat.
The last time England chose to bowl and conceded 553. Though their approach worked it doesn’t seem that they would opt for it again.
As thunderstorms are expected over the weekend, it doesn’t look like the match will continue for five days.
