You got to to laugh.

Absolute despair, and I didnít expect Hameed to fall so cheaply to be honest

Yup agree

eaglesheart 19-12-2021 08:15 AM

Hameed should be put on the next plane home. He doesn't even look like a cricketer.

Worksop Palace 19-12-2021 08:16 AM

Pathetic. It’s the only word.

Pathetic

Reminds me of the Mitchell Johnson Ashes from about 8 years back, which saw the end of a few careers such as KP. Sadly with the state of the first class game in England, we don't have a lot to replace those who get jettisoned.

RazorsEdge 19-12-2021 08:20 AM

Not sure why Burns is Playing across the line, misses he is gone lbw

cockneyrebel 19-12-2021 08:22 AM

Think it just has to be faced that England are shit at test cricket and it’s a format in decline.

How we all laughed prior to that series and took the mick at Mitchell Johnson, boy did he make us eat our own words….

I think this is the last of broad and Anderson we need new bowlers, a keeper and a new opening pair of batsmen

Need to do what NZ done many years ago and play test like a one day match

eaglesheart 19-12-2021 08:32 AM

He did in that series for sure, he was brutal. But to bd fair he was fully deserving of the flack he generally got from England fans over the years (including me :D) as he often bowled all over the place.

Oh yes, I gave him some stick too lol

But that one series he played Brilliantly

Burns and Hameed are so far away from being test openers is almost funny

Aki Aki Aki 19-12-2021 08:51 AM

I have high hopes for Hameed, but he's not really taking his chances. Out to a good ball today to be fair, probably still one to stick with going forward.

Isn't the Adelaide Oval one of the most beautiful grounds in world cricket ? Stunning :p

Jordan's Jacket 19-12-2021 08:54 AM

I haven't seen anything in Hameed to believe he is the man for the job

RazorsEdge 19-12-2021 09:03 AM

Burns is struggling with spin

Why donít they do that? Iíve thought that before. Surely that way they could get 300 or so in an innings?

How different is a red ball to a white ball?

Golf Boy 19-12-2021 09:06 AM

Just put Stokes in witha tailender

It does do more CR, plus in the short format there is a seperate white ball from each end (I think). Also, field settings are very pro batters in one day games.

Watching Butler yesterday was painful when you know what he is capable of doing. I agree we need a different approach and mentality, to be honest we have nothing to lose.
