Root & Malan steadied the sinking ship after a disastrous first innings, will still take a miracle to salvage anything from the first test

Watched the morning session last night and it looked a massive chore for Hameed and Burns just to stay in.

Not surprised to see those two go out when I woke up but very surprised to see we batted all day with the next two in.


Would be cool if we could bat all day again and take it to a 5th day given the disastrous start. Stranger things have happened.

Started on Boxing Day

Fully expected Aus to win the Ashes but didn’t think it would be by this margin. Shambolic batting. Feel for Root in the absolute form of his life

What's the alternative? Don't think it's Roots fault, just the players are shit

Well that was better.

Showed some fight at last.

No 5-0 whitewash.
