Well done, Shai...this experience will put you in good stead for the two December Tests in Wellington and Hamilton, which will most likely be played in similar conditions to Lords in September. Seaming ball, wet and rainy weather, cold conditions (below 20 Celsius).

Our players have been baptized in recent times. Against Pakistan, tremendous turn and bounce on spinning wickets. Against England, visit at the worst time. Three series on the road including a tough New Zealand tour.
To make it worse, we dont even have home advantage on our own wickets.
