Just got a better stream through VIP Box, stream 3.
Just in time to see England's 5th wicket to fall.

One of the pundits is reported to have said the the only thing that England has got right is turning up on time.

Moved to stream 3, 4 failing.

Make sure your anti virus working, mine quarantined 2 adwares this am.

Apparently our bowlers historically do much worse there than anywhere else due to the prevailing conditions.
Batters, yes, no excuses,

That would seem a far comment so far - unfortunately.

Late start today as all England players had to return negative rapid covid tests thiis morning following cases amongst support staff and families.

To quote yet another opinion about Englands performance "Gutless England batsmen deliver full spectrum of ineptitude"
How rapidly Englands meteor has fallen. Shall we blame the WOKE brigade???

I've done a little research on this.
Makes a change from covid 19!

Since the 60s Australia won 68 test matches against England.
England won 46.

But Australia only shaded it in England by 30 to 27.
But at home it was 38 to 19.

What is their home record against all test playing countries?

In the 2000s they won 90 out of 125 test matches...and it looks soon it will be 91 out of 126!
Leaving out all the draws!

So they are one of the best test playing nations. But even better at home. Probably due to the pitch conditions, the travelling required in Australia?
Remember Golf's Rhyder Cup? GB v USA at first. Then due to US dominance they changed to US v Europe in 1979.
Maybe they can do that with cricket tests in Australia?

The conditions for playing in Australia in summer can be harsh - very humid in Queensland, very hot in South Australia.
