History & statistics suggest not.

What’s the % of successful 4th innings chases of >270 in Ashes Tests?

We made a mockery of what is one of the greatest contests in world sport.

Still, every cloud….:p

I was on the treadmill this morning rather enjoying our opening partnership.

England turning "the batting collapse" into an art form :D

The all-white England certainly showing their racial superiority there, having reached a stage of evolution where no-one has a backbone*.

*Mark Wood excepted (no surprise a bloke with some bollocks went to state school)

Too many bloody optimists on this thread.

LuieJack 16-01-2022 11:18 AM

The least said about this shambolic tour the better, but today's collapse summed up perfectly our spineless players. SACK THE F*****G LOT OF THEM.

GB2506 16-01-2022 11:19 AM

From 68/0 to 124 all out. Even by England’s standards that is ******* impressive.

I thought after the first 3 tests things couldn’t look any bleaker. They have managed to prove me wrong. Absolute shambles, utterly pathetic.

Although he conceded 115 in the 1st innings at >run/ball…

At least Root didn't start bawling his eyes out.

Cummins comes across as a good bloke, wise appointment by cricket Aus.

Not great but even the Aussies said Root bowled him from the wrong end. The spreadsheet must have known better than the locals.

Yeah, he's been very professional. Tougher challenges will come as the Aussies now play loads of Test in Asia (I think) but he hasn't really put a foot wrong, either on or off the field.

Sorry, are you saying that at 68-0, with 2 days left, you shouldn’t expect to chase down another 202?

davech 16-01-2022 11:33 AM

9 wickets for 42 in 18 overs!!!!!!!!!

Call themselves cricketers? They needed a bawling out similar to what we used to get at school from a certain Mr Smith. Made me a better cricketer for sure.

Pathetic.
Embarrassing.
Totally predictable.

Can we leave them all in Tasmania? Being an ignorant pom, all I know about Tasmania is Dame Edna's description, which would seem pretty apt for our shower. Or send them back on the slowest boat available. They could share the rowing duties.

stinky 16-01-2022 11:43 AM

Utterly embarrassing. Heads must roll and a complete reset of County Championship cricket is needed.

Got 4 more runs than 120

i) in a D/N Test

iv) & it’s still only Day 3

….is absolute nonsense.

True.............but it does take a special type of ability (or lack of it) to lose 10 wickets for 56 fecking runs !!:wallbash:
