Seven for 39 since the opening partnership was broken.

Was just going to post about Billings technical flaw(all bottom hand) being exposed in his wicket when Pope walked around his stumps and lost his!

Just seen on Twitter that Dawid Malan's first child was born this morning six weeks early and on the other side of the world. Can probably forgive him being a bit distracted today.

OMG! Never a good sign when you pull a ball onto your leg stump!

I know it doesn't matter in the slightest bit Jesus Robinson couldn't have gone further towards leg if he'd taken guard next to the umpire.

And Ollie Robinson sums it up. Run away to leg side and let a full toss hit middle

What a pathetic series that was! Iím sure itís been said before, but will all the money being pumped into 20/20 and this shit 100 format of the game, has just left test cricket to rot in the shadows. Where do we even go from here? I hope some sackings are made and a restructure of the county championship. For me test cricket is my favourite format, it would be nice to see us compete again.

Aus just won the world T20, focusing on white ball cricket doesn't seem to have caused them much difficulty.

Huge amount of things that could be improved. Not sure if I'd trust the ECB to do any of them.

England will go to the West Indies and probably be competitive and it will paper over the cracks of this shambles.

They then play at home series against New Zealand & India (any results possible) but will probably be ok.

Then will depend on how South Africa are by next winter.

The upshot is that nothing will change in the short term.

Limited overs is fun and all, but like you I love watching test cricket. When you can predict with such consistent accuracy that England are about to capitulate itís depressing. Seriously needs to be addressed. I donít want to watch that drivel and itís upsetting

I think we should be patient before reaching conclusions.

It's rumoured that Sue Gray will be reporting that England has drawn the series.

Women's Ashes starts today. I'm rather looking forward to it, mostly because there's at least some chance of a contest.

Edit: England 106/1, do not adjust your TV sets.

Made more of a game of it than the men, but still lost by 9 wickets
