After witnessing horrible batting tactics from England against Australia at Brisbane where the former were bundled out by later on a meager total of 147 runs and skipper Cummins leading from the front in his first test as a leader where he scalped 5 wickets against Three Lions.
What this score on the first day indicates, that it is not easy to cement victory against Aussies at their own den and what India managed to achieve twice in the Australian backyard clearly states that how good Men in Blue have been on Australian shores especially in the longest format of the game.
England of late has turned out to be a disastrous side and leave aside players like Root, Stokes, Anderson and Broad you can’t rely on other players to deliver in Test cricket and ECB is equally responsible for this debacle as they have failed big time to manage balance between T20 and Test cricket and the recent example is allowing their same brunch of players to play The Hundred while test tour of India was going on.
When you look at their batting order except Root who might get some sort of support from Haseeb Hameed and Ollie Pope rest of the batting looks quite fragile. They don’t have world class spinners in their lineup like Nathan Lyon or Ravi Ashwin who can turn the tables for them when the pitch is turning quite vividly and at the end their bowling is all down to legendary James Anderson and too an extent on Stuart Broad and Ollie Robinson but Cricket is a game of uncertainity and it is likely that Anderson will not pick wickets everytime when he steps on to bowl for Three Lions.
