    If England get whitewashed, then :

    1 - All talk of the 90's era should stop
    2 - The Barmy Army are relevant again

    Right, let us evaluate these:

    Too easy for Smith. Root's ****s probably gave it to Malan. Did anyone expect Malan to do well, let alone be top scorer for England?

    Wickets: Haze, Broad
    Nope. Close run on the former, well off on the latter.

    One of Anderson or Broad to get injured.
    Broad did have that knee issue that was brought up but it didn't stop him playing so I don't think that counts.

    2/6 pretty crap really.

    Congrats to Australia on a resounding series win..I predicted an England 3-2 win and have genuinely surprised at how poor England have been. I have also been very surprised at the batting ability of the Marsh brothers! Well done to them and hope all Aussie fans enjoying their victory.

    Close
    Yes, close
    Close, Yes
    Root out memes himself to get this wrong. Paine prediction was based on England always allowing crud batsmen to have great series, so given how Mitch Marsh went I'm giving myself half a point.

    Well there we are. England's highest run maker.

    Of all the people tried in England's middle order in recent times, he is the one to stick with.

    Yeah I think Malan was the best English bat by a fair margin. Root really needs to work on his conversion issues. Getting out in the 70s every time doesn't really help his team build a platform in Australia. It's OK in England where 300 is often a winning total but that's not the case in many countries.

    I thought it would be closer than it was as I thought Australia had significant issues in the batting and keeping areas but even though Handscomb was completely out of form and Bancroft declined after a promising debut, it didn’t really matter because of how listless England were.

    Thought England were gone after how meekly they capitulated with the bat in the 2nd innings in Brisbane. Smith said the Vince run-out was the turning point of the series but in truth I think it was the bowling of Australia on the 3rd evening that defined the series. Sans on the bland Melbourne pitch, Australia pretty much had it over mentally on England’s batsmen from that point on.

    It would be great if Root started making more centuries but the issue is, he is doing his bit and more often than not gets to 50. The others around him need to start doing the same too.

    Getting to 50 isn't 'doing your bit', particularly with how weak England's top order is.
