Excellent knock from Salt, shame it was too late to really give us a chance.

Chasing a target like that you need every batsman to hae a positie impact and sadly Vince, Moeen, Livingstone and Brook, for different reasons, weren't quite up to it.

Livvingstone was a strange one, he looked far too ill to be on the pitch, he wasn't himself at all.

Did we play any ODIs against Australia, or was it just the tests?

Without making excuses, how many miles have our lads (and India, to be fair) put in over the last 18 months? International cricket just seems to have lost all sense of order.

Can appreciate that 'bubble life' is difficult (though members of the armed forces and off shore workers may be better placed to comment on just how difficult it is) , but the question then needs to be raised as to why the ECB have scheduled so many games.  You can't really have the ECB putting together a ridiculous schedule for purely financial purposes and then start moaning about how difficult it is for the players.

The ECB are as bad as FIFA/UEFA it's all about the quantity and so the quality will invariably suffer.

I don't know too much about the ECB, but I watched the recent documentary series about Allen Stanford and I thought the whole 'establishment' came across as very fucking dodgy.

The individuals have changed, but I still feel like they'd rather sell a dog to a butcher from Yulin for £2.50 than to a shelter for £2.49 - as long as that 1p went into their pockets.

Yep and I do also find it funny that you never hear any complaints from players about 'bubble life' during the IPL, it's only when they are on international duty. 

Understand that the financial rewards of the IPL, but again find it a bit much that they accept the
contracts and are handsomely rewarded to play in these tournaments and the different formats for England, but then start moaning about how hard they are finding living out of hotels.

Fair play to the womenís Test team. A competitive, incredibly tense live Test match.

Quite a stark difference between the spinners and the seamers here.

The final few overs are becoming a bit of a problem for England when bowling in the T20 format. The spinners generally do a very good job in the middle overs, only for the seamers to come back on and get smashed.  Guess it can happen in that format, but I think I heard somewhere that England have conceded the most runs in the final few overs of T20s in recent times.

That is true but I think part of it is that rotated the t20 squad heavily in the last couple of years and the impact of that shows in the high pressure moments.
