Re: The Ashes 2013

England 3-31 thanks to three wickets to Siddle, lead Australia by 264 at Stumps on Day 2.

Siddle's burst keeps us marginally in the game, but we don't deserve to be. Our batting today was just humiliating. The lunch-tea procession would have to be our worst session of Ashes cricket since the mid-80's.

We would have to have the worst top six in international cricket. Unfortunately there's just nobody banging on the door to replace them. Really tough times - Australia looking very much like a rebuilding team in need of another rebuild.
