Sorry if it is in the wrong forum, if it is feel free to move to move it to the Ashes one
Well if he doesn't give up the captaincy now after Perth then he will surely do it after Sydney and it is clearly a mistake to give him the captaincy, he is simply not cut out for the job. In that I mean he isn't cut out for it with all of his work load and plus some of captaincy onfield as well.
But my question is do you think we will see a completely different play now? The defeat, the burden of captaincy and all of his roles on and off the field and trying to deal with the brutal British press and facing the prospect of being the first English captain to lose 5-0 in the Ashes in 85 years IIRC.
Or will he bounce back and be his full of confidence with bat or ball when he could change a session and a match with some powerfull hiting or brilliant bowling? Remember last year when he was making key breakthroughs for England and had Gilchrist on his leesh?
