This Curran guy is bowling 123 in Australia. No wonder Smith scores all those runs against this pathetic attack. Infact the Aussie batting lineup is nothing without Smith and Warner. A strong English attack may have been much more competitive.

It's all down to Stokes. If he didn't have his moment of rank stupidity back in September (or whenever it was), this could have been a much more competitive series.

One guy Stoakes all won't have made a difference.

 

England are missing Steve Finn most likely if anything. And even with him Smith could have still scored with the form he is in. Finn would have added some variety or Jake ball with their pace. But like I said, Smith is batting on different planet and won't have had hard time adjusting to them, especially to Stoakes.

Jake ball is trundler. he did play first test.

I mean Finn and Wood. Jake ball is okay. Wood is the one who gets injured more but can bowl fast. He was fit for WACA test but wasn't picked. Also, Finn is someone who could have added pace to their line up. Not that it had mattered in terms of Steve Smith, but may be he could have troubled other guys like Marsh etc who scored freely.

Stokes, another medium pacer, would have made little difference bowling wise. Where he would have made a difference is his batting, the balance he brings to the side, and supporting Root as vice captain. Root's captaincy has been awful frankly. Far too defensive, even today when we couldn't lose the game. On the two occasions he captained Yorkshire you got the impression the senior players were doing the work for him.

Anderson has been dismissed only once in the 6 Innings. 

Anderson's 81 sinks India in England when he put on 198 for the last wicket with Root long time ago.

 

Sometime those tailender playing innings of their lifetime.

Steve Smith can now make 25 consecutive ducks and still maintain an average above 50 :adore:.

Well, he is number one,605 runs in last 6 innings. I would say he is better than Virushqa against pace
