Pathetic bowling by England, very defensive tactics by Cook no third slips. One of the reason why England have suck so much is because there bowlers and captain is very clueless when it comes to strategy and thinking on their feet.
Ridiculous from Eng here. First time in series they got a chance to take the game away and now it is even for both team. Eng just needed to score 300+ but now they have allowed Aus to come back in this game big time.
This is what happens when you go all out defending and blocking and not scoring. A couple of quick wickets and your in trouble because the scores got no where. England's batting this series especially has been a utter trash and a joke. It's like they playing for time from the first test.
Actually Compton did way better than this and he's 3 years younger than Carberry as well. Experts said Carberry is an attacking option aka Trescothick but his batting is the main reason (along with poor form) for our collapses from 80 - 130 in almost every inns.
