6 over throws in two overs. Might as well give Buttler a bowl just in case the Aussies missed us waving the white flag.

We look defeated. Body language is really bad.

Buttler is just sulking and hasn’t said a word for 30 overs.

We seem to have a collective sulk when the sandpaper enthusiast gets more than ten runs. Lurpackface obviously has a fantastic average but do other teams simply give up against him and completely unravel in the same way we do?

Weíre preparing for another decade of it giving up with his mini-me as well by the looks of it.

Anderson is still the man.


What a shame Smith coudlnt finish his ton.....hehe


7 down now but the game is more or less lost I think, play to draw

I said before we should never have toured Aus given how average we are at the moment. It's a tough challenge at the best of times, we should have used covid as an excuse when we had the chance :D . Can't see anything other than a series drubbing. Wrong squad, wrong team selection, wrong captain, wrong coach, just not good enough, it's pathetic.

Settle down guys, have you forgotten we are missing our 2 frontline bowlers?

The pitch will still be flat when you bat.

Come on Jim, you know how it works with England. Aus 460 all out, England 30-3 at the close, the ball swinging all over the place :D .

You could pick 2 blokes from the stands and they would still cause our batting lineup problems.

Hard to argue with that GB. Root might get his first ton on Australian soil though, so some good might come of it.

You are talking about a team that has picked a bowler whoís as dangerous as a Labrador puppy because we canít trust the seven bats above him.

Think there's a genuine argument that you send out Robinson and Woakes to bat

We will do in a minute.

desperado 17-12-2021 09:41 AM

Without Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and Ollie Stone England are always going to struggle to bowl any side out for under 350 on hard flat wickets

The bowlers are all very similar right arm fast-medium, without a genuine front line spinner Root can change the bowler but not the bowling

0.bj 17-12-2021 09:42 AM

Probably not appreciated Down Under but we have to endure oodles of utter bollocks from the mouth of Root about plans, horses-for-courses, specialisms and all sorts of other crap he learned in business studies… and then watch as a bloke whom historically struggles to bowl on Aussie pitches is picked twice in succession, and above 1100 wickets in the bank.

This specific post is aimed at Woakes but it’s merely highlighting the gaslighting of the English cricketing public by the ECB, the idiot Silverwood and our worst captain since the summer of 800 captains.

(And we have managed to drop another catch in the time it has taken to type this :D )

Yeah, give it 40 minutesÖ :hi:

Wolfnipplechips 17-12-2021 09:43 AM

Just after the first six have capitulated.

Wolfnipplechips 17-12-2021 09:45 AM

Just time for another Butlerfingers moment.

art malice 17-12-2021 09:46 AM

Will we have to face the pink new ball under the lights? That’ll be so TYPICAL of our luck, and yet more data for our Misfortune Moving Backward Unit

Imagine if we hadnít let them bat for 5 sessions.
