More lack of concentration as Root and Bairstow do their best to give this match to Aus. :roll:

So, a 4 - 0 loss then. Don't know what Jimmy Anderson was on about in his press conference. He was talking absolute bollocks. Take it on the chin, say it as it was, you took an absolute hiding.

They where very poor from day one, no good against really fast bowlers still can't play spin and there batting at time is terrible at least 3 of them aren't test match players

Root needs to man up and move himself up the order. I don't really care if he doesn't want to bat at 3, when you're constantly having to come in within 10 overs anyway it makes no difference.

I'd push Bairstow up to 4 - he is comfortably good enough. Then you can protect someone like Vince (although I'd pick Livingstone personally) and give them some time to find their feet before smashing them up the order and exposing them.

I'd persist with Hales at the top of the order, particularly whilst Cook is still around. Just let him play his natural game. It has worked for the likes of Hayden in the past.

Of course they could just solve a lot of the problems by just picking Stokes.

Spot on, hale, cook, root and Barstow top 4 looks a lot stronger than the top 4 atm. Hales has done it at international level for a few years in ODIs and 20/20 should be given a chance at test level.
