A great start to The Ashes

How an International Cricket team can not bat out a day is beyond me.

Sixty for one at one point too.

Shambles indeed. No wayback either I reckon, with Smith and Lyon. Losing the WC would not have hurt as much as this Ashes drubbing is going to. New Captain needed first.

A bowler down for the entire test, & no ordinary bowler.

I know nothing about cricket but surely that had a massive impact on the outcome.

Agree that Anderson was a big miss and the outcome may have been different. Only two things beat England; Steve Smith and themselves.

Early days but a wake up call for England. I'm still quietly confident though.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.
