There won't be any during the test here. Just hope Melbourne holds out for once!
Balance for KP, Bairstow for Prior and as for a young spinner, there isn't much out there. A lad called Maurice Holmes should be our next spinner, but that is another story about where English cricket can be its own worst enemy.
the lad got done for throwing so I'm not sure if anyone else can get blamed for that !
Haven't seen a Pom or a Scouser in this thread for ages. Where's DLS?
No he wasnt.
just when it couldn't get any worse it did, pathetic batting and bowling, put the ball in the right place and we see how great the aussie batting is, anyway look forward to seeing Rogers, Smith and Bailey against Steyn, Philander and Morkel
I'm still trying to figure out though if its mostly down to the Aussies playing much better or England playing much worse, probably something in the middle.
It's ended up costing England matches and it's cost Cook his stunning form with the bat. England made the same mistake when they give it to Pietersen.
It wont be easy that's for sure. Especially with a lack of matches against quality opposition.
