Moeen: I didn’t enjoy bowling in Mumbai

England

England allrounder Moeen Ali is looking forward to the pitches in their next two World T20 games to be on the slower side after two high-scoring games in Mumbai.

The Three Lions have played both matches at the Wankhede Stadium, losing to the Windies and chasing a record 230 to beat South Africa, on a surface that captain Eoin Morgan called a 'nightmare for bowlers.'

England will play both their next matches, against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi, which is a lot slower than Mumbai and will allow Moeen and legspinner Adil Rashid to have more impact on the game.

Moeen said: "There's been some good pitches for spinners to bowl on so far. Every time Adil and I have watched the games we've been saying 'we'd love to be bowling on that pitch'.

"I didn't enjoy bowling in Mumbai, it wasn't really conducive to spin so I hope the other pitches, like here where we play our next two games, will be.

"Obviously this wicket is going to be a little different, a little bit slower and I don't expect the runs to be coming as quickly."
