Great to see Leach and Foakes really taking their chance.

I don't think Mo should be batting at 3, especially if he is having to bowl a lot of overs. I would personally move Buttler up to 3, if he's there as an out-an-out batsman he shouldn't be at 6. The way he played against India proves he can dig in when required and we have plenty of firepower in the middle / lower order.

If a spinner was to miss out it would be Rashid whom was rubbish. Leach offered control whereas Rashid only looks a test bowler to tail enders

Yes second test more of a  balanced side on
A more seamer friendly wicket 2 seamers plus Moeen to bowl off spin Rashid to bowl leg spin  orthodox spin not needed  also  both are better batters  than Leach
