English Lions on the Brink


PV Sports Desk : Having watched English Lions in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth it gives us strong feelings that they are now on the brink of an inevitable Kangaroo wash.
English batsmen can not decode the mysteries of Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon. Neither Anderson, Broad nor Moeen Ali set puzzles for Warner, Smith, Bancroft and Marsh.
With MCG and SCG to go stage is set for comprehensive white wash for the lions. Excepting the second innings of Australia in Adelaide we would not say England was at all in competition. The three in three wins of Smith brigade has underlined the vulnerability of English cricket to quality opposition. The euphoria that every Ashes creates was also there this time. But poor over all performance by the Englishmen has taken away much of the gloss from the traditional Boxing Day test at MCG and new years day test at SCG. In the dead rubber home team Australia is firm favorite.
