Sad news that former Pakistan leg spin genius Abdul Qadir has passed away from a heart attack. He was probably watching Jason Roy bat. 

He was a magnificent bowler, always had England in his pocket.

SIR GEOFFREY BOYCOTT

What a farce that he is knighted in a summer he has done nothing and the great Ed Smith is having to wait......

I love that England's solution to having lost the Ashes and facing a winter of three test series (I think?) is to not try anybody new at all and pick exactly the same squad.

What sort of twat thought Jason Roy opening in tests would be a good idea too!

Oh.

I was gonna say that the most England thing ever is waiting until the series is lost before making any changes, but maybe not making any changes trumps it...

It's definitely the England way that they'll all score loads of runs in a largely meaningless test, thus buying them three more years in the team.

Nothing says "they might score runs in a pressure situation down the line" like scoring runs in a largely meaningless test, the selectors know this.

So J-Roy and Overton are the ones to pay for the loss of the Ashes. Stokes playing just as a specialist batsman because of his shoulder injury. To be honest Woakes and Curran will score as many runs as Roy would so it's not like we have actually weakened the batting.

What was the point of bringing Overton in? Drop Woakes for one test and now bring him back after Overton did alright? Still, at least Curran's back now there's almost nothing to play for.

When you think England couldn't bat any worse they get torn  apart by Mitch Marsh. Thank god he did a hammy we'd have been all out. 

I'm just happy the Aussies took pity on us and only played him for 1 test

Whapplington should of kicked on if we are being honest.....

 

Now that this Ashes is over there is a lot for England to reflect on but it's from an Australian perspective it's worth remembering that-

 

They had the greatest single series batting display in modern history

England ended up missing there greatest ever bowler for all but 4 overs

Australia won 4 tosses (I seem to think the toss is more important than most fans do)

England have been largely dog shit. 

And they still only drew the series. They have plenty they can improve upon themselves
