The sport you've all been waiting for starts today! Weeks of fevered anticipation come to this. Can Moeen live up to his lavish billing? Is Sam a fair dinkum Brit? Will Luke bowl really fast? Will Chris stand over a pile of bones at day's end? Or will Mahela and Kumar attain the sublime, again? Of course, there are other players. Expect little-known talents like Nuwan Pradeep and Alistair Cook to shine, and the likes of Joe Root and Prasanna Jayawardene to play the role of the lower-order spoiler .
And then, in the evening, there's even more sport to enjoy! Yes, I'm talking about the Day 1 highlights. You'll want to see that Gary Ballance forward-defensive prod again, I'm sure!
