If Eoin Morgan is intimidated by the prospect of making his Test debut, he is doing a good job of hiding it. Asked whether he has the patience to occupy the crease for four hours, his answer is simple: "I think so. I might get 400, but that wouldn't be a bad start."
We are at a sunny Lord's, two days before the start of another Test summer. Outside on the Nursery ground, the touring Bangladesh team are going through a series of fielding drills. Inside the indoor school, the man Nasser Hussain calls the most exciting England player to emerge since a certain Kevin Pietersen is full of the joys of spring.
Morgan being Morgan, even when he goes on the defensive it is all about attacking.
Would he be worried about getting out to one of his famously unorthodox shots in a Test match at headquarters?
"Absolutely not," he responds. "I've played the reverse sweep millions of times. I've got out to it 10% of the time, but 90% of the time it's scored me runs. If it's going to score me a lot of runs, then absolutely I'll play it."
