Kohli was right in saying that England could not deal with their one class spinner in Ajmal. So that does not bode well for them against us at all.
All 3 warm up games will be on green tops so that will make it tough for them to get their eye in as it were.
For the record I've always thought it weird that people view games were teams dominate and then blow it at the end to be more humiliating than a thrashing from ball 1. At least when you dominate the early stages of a game, you show the capabilities to win the game. If you get hammered from the start it just shows hopelessness.
I don't know how anyone can say England's defeats in Abu Dhabi and the 3rd test in Dubai were more humiliating than the first test in Dubai, where they collapsed to a pitch offering literally no spin (at least it turned moderately at Abu Dhabi) in both innings and let players like Adnan Akmal score runs. But people always mention the last two tests because of being bowled out for 72 and losing despite bowling Pakistan out for 99.
