Roy, Burns, Denly should be no where near any England team and on recent form nor should Root. The fact that thatís the current top 4 is a bit embarrassing.

Rootís form disappeared half way through the World Cup and he hasnít got it back yet.

It a lot longer than that. Root is averaging just 33 in his last 31 test innings.

And another shit shot from a player totally out of his depth. This time itís Burns.

Burns is England's top run scorer this series and is averaging nearly 60.  Only Stokes has a higher average.

Well the ambition has gone from batting all day (lol) to somehow getting in range of their score.

All we had to do was survive the first hour and then go at them.

Five minutes short of the first hour, twenty for three. 🤨

How can we make wholesale changes to our batting lineup when the replacements are probably just as bad? Yes we could try Pope, Sibley and Crawley but we canít go into a test with such an inexperienced line up.

The fact remains that White ball cricket means that our batsmen no longer have the strong technique required to build a patient innings at test level.

As bad as England have been this morning you have to give credit to Hazlewood and Cummins for a fantastic bowling display.

Having a coach who doesn't give a single fuck about Test Cricket probably doesn't help either.

That was the instructions from above though wasnít it? We need a more balanced approach, test cricket is still the ultimate form of the game.
