Little hope for England

Over 600 behind Australia, skittled out for 157 in a devastating spell of bowling by Glen McGrath and an all round woeful perfomance. Heading for a huge defeat and it does not look good for the rest of the series, only hope is if some of the dismal weather in London spreads to Brisbane though little hope exists of that happening!

Fickle commentary - ecstasy when they won last year - gloom and doom now after only 3 days of the first test. So England will almost certainly lose the series but - so what? As long as they do their best there will be no disgrace in losing to a better team... no need for ill-informed criticism of the England players' characters. England are without key players from last year's Ashes victory and some players, bowlers in particular, are not in form. It happens. It is not a national disaster. England's greatest challenge is to show the sort of team spirit which enabled them to overcome a better team last year.

Well today has been a significant improvement on the first three days and the perfomances of Collingwood Pitersen and Bell have to be commended. England though need to stop giving wickets away cheaply and the bowling performance needs to impove, I hope Monty Panseer plays in the next test. Retaining the Ashes is possible but will require a signficant improvement in form.
