    He's out of contract in April. They're talking about not renewing it. He's apparently a control freak, really intense and full on which the Aussie players don't like at all. He was nearly sacked when they lost at home to India last year because of his approach. Apparently he has toned it down!

    Big rumour is that a lot of the Aussie players want Trevor Bayliss to take over when Langer's contract expires and he's supposedly keen on the Idea too.

    I don’t think he will take it after the way he was treated last time he was interviewed when they went for Silverwood.

    Woakes dropped first ball!

    Three of the wickets have been players playing at balls that they didn't need to - the urge to hit every ball is white ball batting from guys without the technique for this game, sadly.

    All out in less than 50 overs again, top scorer a bowler, the English Batsmen are great at smashing it around for 20 or 50 overs, on batsmen friendly one day pitches with fielding restrictions to help them. But absolutely ******* useless when they've to build an innings on a more even wicket with the better bowlers bowling over after over.

    To play sensible shots, not do anything stupid, see off the opening bowlers and soften the ball :D

    must be frustrating for our bowlers knowing we can't compete to be in with a shout of winning a game, in play injuries for them not helped this series either

    Broad loves getting Warner out. A pair of duck eggs in the match for him.

    True, but in this test, I think the game was lost by the bowling of Woakes and Wood on day 1. They got far too many runs from the position that Broad and Robinson got us into.

    The thing that's really frustrating for me is that this is not a great Australian team.
    They have weaknesses and when we've applied a bit of pressure we've not been able to sustain it.
    One example, lower order runs, can't be arsed to look at the stats across the 5 tests but we've let their lower order score **** load of runs and ours have been poor.

    Yep, great start yesterday and it just got away from us. Labuschange dropped on 0 and added another 40 odd runs. Allowing Head to score a century on that pitch was criminal. All hypothetical but if you do better in those two situations then the Aussies first innings may be around the 200 mark rather than 300.
