Im all good with it. They miss the meaningless festival opener and a four-dayer but theyll be back for two more four-dayers before the first test.
And its not like they'll have come in cold, they will have at least played some form of competitive cricket prior.
And if you ask me, the most important warm-up of them all will be the final match against the British Lions before the first test as that will be the best hit out they'll get out of all the initial warm-ups.
