I think Australia would have made them follow on if they were allowed.

Root should lose the captaincy at the end of this series. He not a good leader and it's also effecting his batting. Lots of muddled thinking.

  • England's 67 is their 12th lowest Test score of all time
  • It is their fourth lowest total at home
  • It is their lowest at Headingley
  • At 167 balls, it is England's ninth shortest completed Test innings
  • It is England's lowest Test score against Australia since making 52 at The Oval in 1948
  • It is the fourth time England have been dismissed for under 100 since the start of 2018 (after 58 v New Zealand, 77 v West Indies, 85 v Ireland) and the third time in 2019
  • Before the start of 2018, the last time England were bowled out for under 100 was 72 against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi in January 2012
  • Joe Denly's 12 is the lowest highest score in a Test innings for England

Not a captain.

I’d also say there needs a real rethink for the top order as the players currently occupying these spots shouldn’t be there, not test cricket quality ( Root should be at 4).

Beyond pathetic.

Imagine if we were playing the Aussies circa 1989 - 2005 when they were actually pretty good

I'd give Butler the gloves and make him captain.

Sibley
Burns/someone else
Bairstow/Denly
Root
Stokes
Roy
Butler
Woaks/Jimmy
Broad
Archer
Leach/Moeen

But England's best chance is hoping it rains for the next 2.5 days

England have scored 39 runs from the last 31 overs.



They need to find a happy medium.

In fairness, to have any chance they need to make sure they don't lose wickets

True, but they are piling the pressure on themselves not scoring at all.

Suggests to me they don’t know which balls to play. They can only play everything, or nothing.

Feels like Australia are losing the plot a bit. They are still miles ahead of this game, need to recompose themselves. Bairstow has given England some impetus but a wicket will make this target look very far away.

I think Stokes is playing a blinder here btw, nothing wrong with this in a test match, the longer he stays there, the better England's chances. This modern day Chappell bullshit about needing to play shots, score runs and dominate is nonsense. Nothing wrong with occupying the crease when there's time in the game.
