“They have a lot of experience, a lot of quality, and I think that helps the other guys too.

“Establish the squad, and that’s how we want to play, but sometimes you don’t have the staff around and it’s not easy when you have younger guys coming in and out of the side.

“We were very inexperienced at Old Trafford last week, against probably the best stitching attack in the country, and we’ve had some dark days this year against red ball when we’ve been 25-4 and struggling to score hitting points.

“But I can’t fault the work ethic. The players have been outstanding. Sometimes we have lacked confidence a bit, which can happen.

“Let’s be fair, for most of the season the pitches have been bowler-friendly and have been tweaked, but hopefully now the pitches will get a little drier and be a little better at hitting and the guys really they can profit. “
