The trouble with doing an illustration of Moeen Ali is that finding a decent photo of him smiling is as difficult to find as typing his name with predictive text on (I’m fairly sure he won’t like being called Moreen).
Anyway, it wasn’t a huge surprise when Moeen Ali came waltzing down the pitch in the second innings at Lord’s. After all, nifty footwork is only to be expected when the England batting coach is a Strictly Come Dancing champion. However, while Mark Ramprakash operated in sequined waistcoats under ballroom lighting, Moeen appeared to be attempting the kind of hokey cokey performed by the wrinklies after too many advocaats down at the local Palais.
