Cameron Green letting it rip at >140 km/h, vicious pace for a second change bowler. Soon seam bowlers who average 130km/h and below will not be deemed international quality, unless they can bat too

Is this really the best XI cricketers in the county cricket scene? I reckon they are better off calling up some mid-thirties, grizzly county opening batsmen, plug them into the team and instruct them to occupy the crease until lunch because the opening batsman they have barely last the first session and the middle order is facing a newish ball, swinging at/away from them at +140 km/h which isn’t ideal

Bairstaw was doing well, damn what a messed up way to use your wicket. I doubt England will go over 200 in this innings :W:

England losing by an innings in just over 2 days. Bowled out for 68. Ashes over in 3 tests flat.

They got hammered in India as well, lost home series to India and New Zealand.

If this were Bangladesh or Zimbabwe, people would have come in their undergarments and shouted for their test status to be stripped.

According to Micheal Vaughn, "A team incapable of scoring more than 100 run in a test innings has no business playing test matches". Someone needs to ask him if this applies to the great England test team
