England's Moeen Ali says he has overcome his side strain and is ready to play his first Australian tour match in Townsville starting on Wednesday. Ali missed England's opening two warm-up games. "I am good. It's just a slight strain on my side from throwing. It was a bit frustrating but also not a bad thing, you get a lot more work done," he said. "I feel like I am ready to play and I can't wait to spend time in the field.

We have got four days of cricket ahead. I can get a bit of game time in my system and then be ready to play, hopefully, at the Gabba," he added. This warm-up game is England's last game before the Ashes series-opener in Brisbane starting on November 23.
