Before the second Ashes Test against Australia, England has concern over the fitness of all-rounder Moeen Ali.
In the 10-wicket first Test defeat in Brisbane, Moeen suffered a cut finger but bowled in the nets on Friday. Even if he is not fit to bowl on Saturday he will still be in action as a batsman, leaving England to choose between Jake Ball and Craig Overton for final pace spot.
In Adelaide, the day-night match at the Adelaide Oval, played with a pink ball, begins at 03:30 GMT. In the same eve, England will meet Australia in the rugby league World Cup final in Brisbane.
If Moeen is unable to bowl, then Captain Joe Root’s part-time off-breaks will be England’s only slow bowling option. The tourists have named a 12-man squad, adding Overton to the 11 who played in Brisbane.
Australia will be unchanged from the side that won the first Test.
