Should have stayed home and saved the air fair... could have put the Ladies team on equal pay... at least they can bat

I’ve not watched any. This isn’t a Test Match series - it’s a rout. England should never have gone to Australia in the first place given their preparation.

It’s probably the least competitive I’ve ever seen an England team. We’ve had some hammerings in Asia but they have generally been on very alien pitches. Theres no excuse for this tour even with the lack of preparation we shouldn’t be this bad. Doesn’t sound like the bowlers have been that bad more hampered by poor fielding, captaincy, selection and lack of runs on the board but the batting has been truly pathetic. If it was simply only root and their big 3 getting runs you could maybe think it might be hard but the fact pretty average players like malan and a few of their lesser players have got some you would think give our batsman a bit more confidence. Especially this game against a second string bowling attack. But obviously not seems like it’s just an all fall over when root gets out job. Unfortunately roots own batting contributions have been cancelled out by some shocking selections and captaincy as well.

They've got nothing right in this tour... Buttler was doing the right thing til the numpty trod on his wicket... All this " Going Out and Expressing Yourself" may work in one day games, but in a test scenario they need to be fluid... lose quick wickets? Drop anchor and dig in... they've not shown that adaptability
