Itís quite a statement for the bowling coach to come out and say Robinson needs to improve his fitness. I agree though, heís a cracking bowler when heís at full tilt, but he really struggles to sustain it and drops off a lot.

Jon Lewis was effectively saying that Robinson hasnít handled the step up fitness wise from county cricket to test cricket. Well you want the player to take responsibility for their own fitness but surely the coaching staff share some of the blame? This tour has been a shambles.

I think the point is there is personal responsibility. Itís pretty unusual for coaches to come out and say that, so Iím guessing he hasnít been taking on advice.

The only excuse I can give is the poor build up and limited opportunities with how strict things have been over here. Sounds like a line though otherwise.

I'm surprised there's even a step up between the two standards so pronounced fitness wise. With Shield cricket over here, quicks are simply expected to step up into a role if they're selected for Australia, absolutely no question. Bowl a few spells in a day and do it potentially in 35+ degree heat. I reckon I could drop by my local Grade cricket team and the fitness levels would be as good as you'd expect to be able to play a First Class/Sheffield Shield which is the level above.

It was alarming to me how after the opening spells yesterday trailed off so badly, I'm not entirely sure it's just Robinson.

The batting is shite, thatís well known, but Iím sticking a good deal of responsibility on the bowling this time. Australia got 120/130 more than they should have here and itís largely down to the dross Wood and Woakes sent down in the second session yesterday.

Inexcusable that Burns got run out so early. He has been a disaster this series. The top order are hopeless.

I only know a little about cricket really but even someone like me knows the difference between limited overs and Tests in terms of the approach to batting. We see it time and time again, desperate scrambling for runs when there really is no need. Pathetic.

Inferior in nearly every single session this series. It's been an actual mismatch.
