    Boundaries are not the only way to score. Manipulating singles along with drop and run seem to be a lost art at times. Not sure if its s T20 legacy but fmd it's annoying when a top 6 batter can't find 1s.

    2006/07 at least had the benefit of Pietersen's shining light beginning to come through.

    There just hasn't really been anything similar in this tour. Obviously if England win here on the coattails of a big Stokes century it will help redeem the tour a bit for England but right now only Stuart Broad has had a half decent tour. And Broad being an established player means that the fans can take very little solace in that fact.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Yeah this has been a lot worse than 06/07. Even a win here doesn't really alter that fact unless we absolutely destroy them.

    The Aussie attack is certainly not 2nd rate.

    Batting line-up as a whole? Possibly. They're getting there but still a lot of questions. Wasn't an awful statement from GFL IMO.

    Yeah, they will not get away with top order failings against South Africa, everything else about them have been outstanding.

    This is the worst tour ever, day 3 on the 4th test confirmed it for me.

    Yeah, i'll put 1989 to bed as it were.

    This current fiasco is surely the worst in terms of performances. One century maker, one five wicket haul (same bloke) and massive defeats every single Test. Two players leaving the tour, befuddled and confused selection process, crumbling completely under pressure and caving in against pace.

    I just hope they enjoyed the teas....

    As a pedant I have to point out Broad took 5 in the first dig at the Gabba too.

    I've just been comparing the results of the first four Tests of this series with Australia's record against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh - there's a rather worrying conclusion to be drawn

    I can see the comparison between England and Zimbabwe but to be fair I don't think Bangladesh have many African born players playing for them.
