Moeen: I didn’t enjoy bowling in Mumbai

England allrounder Moeen Ali is looking forward to the pitches in their next two World T20 games to be on the slower side after two high-scoring games in Mumbai.

The Three Lions have played both matches at the Wankhede Stadium, losing to the Windies and chasing a record 230 to beat South Africa, on a surface that captain Eoin Morgan called a 'nightmare for bowlers.'

England will play both their next matches, against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi, which is a lot slower than Mumbai and will allow Moeen and legspinner Adil Rashid to have more impact on the game.

Moeen said: "There's been some good pitches for spinners to bowl on so far. Every time Adil and I have watched the games we've been saying 'we'd love to be bowling on that pitch'.

"I didn't enjoy bowling in Mumbai, it wasn't really conducive to spin so I hope the other pitches, like here where we play our next two games, will be.

"Obviously this wicket is going to be a little different, a little bit slower and I don't expect the runs to be coming as quickly."
