Ashes lessons so far: from Australia’s fab four to England’s failure to convert | Rob Smyth


1) England’s failure to seize key moments proves criticalEngland have not been pulverised as they were in 2013-14. England have not only struggled to convert fifties into hundreds, they have also been unable to turn starts into fifties. There are no weak links in Australia’s four-man attack; there aren’t even any average links. England’s attack cannot compare for depth, speed or revolutions on the ball. They have struggled with the old ball, and Cummins, Australia’s No9, has a higher series average than any England batsman.
