Bonesy will back me on this since 2018 when the Dee's were absolute pants lol..

He is to blame for me to follow AFL

I'm not a fan of Warne but at least he slags the Aussies off when he thinks it's needed. You'll never get Finn or Cook doing that to England.

Maybe Finn still thinks he can resurrect his England career :D

Thank feck for that lol.

One of my favourite cricket ground is MCG and this is where they play AFL too, so I decided to pick them to follow, must say last season was brilliant

I know we got battered in 2006, but Gilchrist got a 57 ball century?! Jeez.

I listened to that in utter horror. Just like 20 years before for Viv Richardsí 56-ball ton in Antigua.

These days Iíd deffo switch off.

But my points refer to how we have let basic planning slip, lets be honest we have struggled for years to put out a balanced side it which always seemed lopsided and unbalanced, its not rocket science to suggest it needs 5 Batsmen, Allrounder, Wicketkeeper, Spinner and 3 additional Pace bowlers. How often did we see that? something that is basic.
Maybe the problem lay from the early days when we depended on Root to rescue the batting, Stokes as the dependable allrounder, and the outstanding Anderson and Broad our bowling saviours and that was the mainstay of the side and without any thought to planning ahead, which is why we now have these issues to overcome.
Unfortunately this has many comparrissions to my own County side Surrey, and for me Both need a long hard look at themselves and how it is being run.

But even the basic planning is linked to all that.

And this match we've gone for a balanced line up, yet it is still executed terribly. There is no way in a game of this magnitude you'd have left out both Anderson and Broad unless both were injured.
I think Broad is a complete prick yet even I feel sorry for him!

But, to my original point, the Test side will find it much harder to be planning for the future because we don't allow our young players the opportunity to fine tune and work on their game, and too many get found out too early on. See Crawley, Sibley etc.

Sibley was found out because he has a shocking technique. Burns has a similarly awful technique, but for some unknown reason is not being dropped (is it six ducks in 2021 ?). Crawley has a far better technique and should enjoy the hard Aussie wickets, but like Jimmy and Broady, he's playing in the nets rather than in the middle. I'd rather open with Bairstow than Burns.

Yep. At least YJB has a hint of ability to play straight, if not always down the correct line.


That sounds a bit Eric Morecambe-like :D

Correct

Burns simply not fit for purpose

Nearly off the friends list Razor:D

Looking forward to the first session. Time to stick the dagger in (nicely) and put this game to bed once and for all. Another 90 runs and it's absolute curtains i reckon, if it's not already.

Prince Phillip 09-12-2021 09:03 PM

Was amazed to see when checking the stats today that England's overall record down under is quite close. Aus 19 Series - Eng 14 Series.
Although admittedly lots of England wins are way, way, back in history. Draw a line at say 1980, and it's been pretty much a bloodbath every tour.
It's all very much like Wimbledon pre-Murray - we seem to have this strange belief in a positive outcome.
