What an absolute diabolical shambles. The England team must be praying for Covid to rescue them from getting drubbed again in the last two tests.

Congrats to Skippy etc

5-0

England are so far off the pace.

Pathetic, embarrassing, boring.

Thank goodness the Big Bash is on

My beloved India beat Australia the last two times they toured there, even winning at the Gabba last year. Perhaps Australia could play India next time for the Ashes, just to make it more competitive.

A proper thrashing. Can't wait to see the Poms keep on self destructing in the final two tests. The fallout at the ECB after the tour is over will be fun to see. Root is great batter but a very poor captain. But that's not the main problem, it's the rest of their batters who haven't showed up. Great stuff!

Id argue the most interesting games Australia has played against anyone over the last 10 years has come from Australia v India games.

6 for 7 in four over for Boland. One wicket every four balls. Total capitulation.

6 for 7 in his very first test match is extraordinary. Hats off to debutant Scott Boland. The Three Lions are yet to find adequate replacements for the likes of batters Cook, Trott, Trescothick, Strauss, Vaughan, etc. Batter Joe Root and bowler Anderson are world class. All the best to England in the challenges ahead. Congratulations to CA.

I don't know what's worse. The team's performances or the fact that English school children can't get access to watch live test cricket for free on TV as its behind SKY TVs pay wall! Poor school children cant access it and consequently their potential talent and involvement is lost!
