Bit unfair on our bowlers to call this one of the worst touring sides to Australia. Worst batting  yes.

Couldn’t agree more.  The batsmen have been letting them down all series. Great effort today considering the injuries.

Terrible shot execution from Stokes there. Not sensible at this point in the day either. 
 

I suppose it’s his natural game and they’re told to be aggressive but still. 
 

Load of old bollocks.

It's still as finely balanced as a Spanish cider pourer.

 

For the moment.

 

 

 

It wasn't, and it certainly isn't now.

 

At 68-0 Australia were slight favourites. At 83-3 it was done.

Spanish cider pouring is fairly precipitous and precarious.

None within 500 miles of me, sadly. Would love a cider in the summer.

The notion of drinking cider in warm weather is highly underrated I think.

 

I remember having a pint of cider, laced with ice blocks, in Kerry in Ireland of all places about 14 years ago and thinking to myself... this is actually nicer than beer.

Statistically it might not be so, but this has to be the worst England series performance on Australian shores. 

 

A Bairstow innings in Sydney has prevented this from breaking almost every record imaginable.

There were three (I think) previous 5-0s.

 

Had Cummins declared 50 runs earlier in Sydney the other day, then we wouldn't be speculating.

3 dropped catches, mate. Yes, he could have declared a touch earlier, but no Test team should factor in 3 dropped chances per innings. 

 

As it is, the point stands. A single wicket prevents this from being the worst English team ever on Australian shores.

The point does stand I guess.

Especially as this is not a great Australian team.  Nor anywhere near.

Fucking useless. If they liven they can catch a flight with the tennis fella. 

I'd argue he deserves to stay more than them!

They never looked like they wanted to be here.

 

I can't blame them.

 

Playing sport in the current world climate is utter shite.

 

Not that that's an excuse for not being very good.  I guess.
