In the second innings of the Melbourne test, Scott Boland took 6 wickets as Australia defeated England by a margin of an innings and 14 runs in the third Ashes Test. With the win on the Melbourne test, Australia regains the ashes as they have a lead of 3-0 of 5 match series.
Ricky Ponting said “I don’t think I’ve seen worse-performing side in Australia than what I’ve seen in the last three games, England might have to look at how they can make their conditions more suitable to ours.
they (England) play well in England but they don’t play well when they come here- so England needs to play more with Kookaburra ball.
(Ashes 2021-2022) England team was bundled out on 68 runs in their second innings of Melbourne test and they had to face innings defeat. The English batters have not been able to put the spirited show in the first three matches.
The England batting lineup has been completely dependent on Joe Root and Dawid Malan who are able to show some fight against the fierce Australian bowling lineup.
From the batting perspective, the tour has been nothing short of a nightmare for the England team, apart from Joe Root and Dawid Malan, no one has shown some fire while facing the Australian bowlers.
Now the England team has two matches left and it would be interesting how they are going to get up from their embarrassing loss on MCG where the team just fall apart in front of Australian bowling.
The fourth match of the series is going to get started from 5th January 2022 and before that England had to solve their batting woes otherwise it is going to be another cakewalk for Australia.
