      Think KP and Prior should be finally put out to grass, start drafting in the youngsters, apart from young Stokes, I would sack the lot of them, trouble is there is not much talent about.

      Well done lads, very proud to have wrapped up the series already, now for a 5-0 Whitewash.  :D

      PS Well done Young Stokes. Put a few seasoned English pros to shame with his batting and his ability to grind it out.

      He actually had the balls to stand up to the attack and take them on with clever batting and proper cricket shots.

      On that pitch it was criminal getting out like they did, the English. Both sides a bit guilty of that I guess but England more so.

      On to the next one. 5-0 again would be great, Ian!

      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.  :roll:
      the lad got done for throwing so I'm not sure if anyone else can get blamed for that !

      Swanny has retired.

      Time for Monty to step up and cement his place as England's first choice spinner again.

      Poor timing to quit in the middle of a major tour. Too many players seem to have their eyes on the lucrative IPL.

      his action was reported several times and he was warned about bowling the doosra, he then blamed the ECB for everything and suggested they spread the word that he was banned from using the doosra.

      I think an LFC Reds XI would have give Australia more of a game in this test.  What a calamity.  Amazing how a team can dominate one test series and then be totally dominated in another just a handful of months later.

      It's as if "The Chosen One" has been given a job with the ECB.

      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

      It wont be easy that's for sure. Especially with a lack of matches against quality opposition.

      Terrible terrible test from England, some positive signs in the new blood though. I think its fairly clear that the captaincy has to be given to someone else now.
      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. Having said that at least when the Aussies lost in England in the summer they showed some fight and some spirit, that's what is the most worrying from an England point of view.
