Might not work, but then again, there's not a whole lot to lose vs. them coming in at 50/6. Most other teams don't really have anyone to make it work though.
    Moeen and Curran are dogged with decent defense technique?

    I'd say Woakes and Leach would work better

    I think this should absolutely be a thing. Quite a few "new-ball wickets" these days that see the top-order get sawn off and the lower-order have to do a recovery job. If you've got bowlers with a decent defensive ability (eg. Jack Leach) I can see the advantage to it. Top-order batsmen probably don't want to do it though because it makes you look like a ***** and opens you up to a huge range of sledging.

    I was wrong lol

    Curran would probably get 50(34) all with edges through the slips and make it work, somehow.

    Pitch was rubbish after rain then Sun. Both sides declared to get the opposition in on it before it improved. Notice how WI declared right after Headley was dismissed for a duck? They didn't see the point of batting thereafter on that pitch. That's why the WI declared giving Eng under 100 to chase. Save for an innings from Hammond they'd have likely won.

    2 other names who are capable of doing this job which immediately come to mind are Ishant Sharma and Jason Gillespie.
