England collapsed to Australia leading the series 1-0 – fourth day of ashes

Waiting to continue for Root

After being fired for 89, Joe Root still waiting for his first century of Ashes Down Under. The start is fine, but the England captain will kick himself for not converting a single point into triple figures.

Signed, hidden and delivered

The ‘Brisbane The Barmies’ haven’t had much to cheer on for the past four days and take that to heart. Josh Hazlewood played enough games to sign an autograph on the touchline, without realizing that the small text was involved in the Australian football tampering scandal from 2018.

After being included in the team following the sex scandal that brought down Tim Paine, Alex Carey caught eight times on debut – the most of any wicket goalkeeper in their first appearance.

Britain has to pay the price for going slow?

If losing the opening game by such a big margin wasn’t bad enough, England could find themselves leaving Brisbane with a score of nothing more or less. Former ICC elite referee Simon Taufel suggested in a Channel 7 segment that the match umpire could deduct points for the World Championships of Tests against England because of their too slow odds. In an extended Monday, the Root side was only able to send 84 units from the scheduled 98.
