Well the Test series may be decided, but after the start of the final Test in the series, England have finally won a day's play! WI won the toss and put us into bat, but when you do that you have to bowl the opposition out in a day... and England finished on 231/4. Yes, the top order collapsed again, but Stokes and Buttler put on a partnership of 124, and we are in pole position. Now if these two gentlemen could double their scores today, we might just go on to win it.
Talk Sport this morning mentioned that the England team were averaging about 16 runs per wicket, the worst since the 1880s!
It just doesn't look good. We've got one more Test this series, and the inaugural Test against Ireland in six months, to sort out our problems. Then it's the Ashes.
Australia meanwhile have just got completed a thumping of Sri Lanka down under, with four centuries from Joe Burns, Travis Head, new star Kurtis Patterson (look out for him this summer) and Usman Khawaja. Granted, the opposition isn't up to much, but they're in much better shape than we are at the moment.
Don't rate us on that Sri Lanka series. They were depleted.
Rate us on what India did to us on our own soil. For the first time. Ever.
