After losing the fourth Test of Ashes 2019 in Manchester, England has escaped any chances of taking the Ashes home for another 2 years. And now they are trying to avoid their first series defeat at home since 2001. In the last test, it was quite obvious that England’s batting line up was a big failure when the whole team collapsed on 197 runs in the second inning.
A failed batting line-up for England
Among those who were completely torn in the match, five batsmen were not even able to turn their scores in double digits. Captain Joe Root was out on a duck in the second inning while struggling against Pat Cummins.
After an embarrassing defeat, England is preparing itself for the fifth and the final test of the Ashes. The team has announced an unchanged squad for the last test which is scheduled to take place in Specsavers.
