Root: England 'massively' still in Ashes fight

Root: England 'massively' still in Ashes fight

Smith could contribute with 40 and 6 in the second Test but a resilient Shaun Marsh-century and his bowlers scripted Australia a famous win by 120 runs in the day-night Adelaide Test.

"In big series senior players have to step up and lead from the front and I tried to do that last night, but unfortunately this morning I couldn't carry that on", he lamented.

Vaughan suggested England had neither the skill nor resilience to win a match."This was the week we all fancied England to take something from", he said in comments in The Australian Friday.

Root's men earned an outside shot at a national-record run chase after bowling Australia out for 138 and then reaching 176 for four by stumps on day four, on the back of their captain's unbeaten 67, in pursuit of a highly-improbable 354. "We have to work out a way to keep that concentration and compete for longer". "That hurts me a lot personally".

Yankees reportedly tap Boone as new manager
The average age of Girardi's first seven Yankees rosters was always between 29.3 and 31.8 years, according to Baseball Reference. The Mets, on the other hand, have gone with second- or third-chance managers who needed to revive their careers.


England, who hold the urn, were dismissed for 233 in their second innings in the opening session of the fifth and final day of the maiden pink ball Ashes test. If we bat reasonably well - I thought we batted pretty poorly to be honest to get to 350 - we should be getting up over 400.

"Certainly, the scent is strong and the hounds have been unleashed and Root's team are struggling to avoid the impression that they are on the run, short of hundreds and outgunned with the ball as they are."It is going to be a tough few weeks."The third Test of the five-Test series starts in Perth on December 14, followed by Melbourne and Sydney (tomorrow)".

England could turn to a paceman of their own to exploit the Perth surface, with Mark Wood being given a chance to impress selectors after being included in a two-day England Lions warm-up against a Cricket Australia XI in Perth on Saturday. We have neither."At this rate, you wouldn't be surprised if it was 5-0, as Adelaide probably represented England's best chance to chalking up a victory".

" I don't think we did ourselves justice", he said. "Fortunately, we were able to hang in there and get the result we were after".
