Ashes gone as far as I'm concerned. Apart from 2 or 3 individuals this is a poor England test side.

Hopefully Root and Bayliss will resign at the end of the series. Time for an overhaul of county cricket and less emphasis on the white ball game. Unfortunately I have more chance of a knighthood.

No interest by the batsmen in scoring 100s
No recognition that failing to score 100 is a failure and should cause shame not indifference.

No pride in playing for your country and NOT letting it down.
Too much emphasis on playing some game where the teams wear coloured clothes and the game is over in 1/2 a day - whatever it is, it isn't cricket.
To me the fact that the ENGLAND team amassed ONE more run in two innings than they allowed Australia to get in ONE innings should be a source of complete and abject SHAME for the England players. Sadly Root obviously doesn't think so as he has failed to fall on his sword.
