I should also say how well England played last night. 

Roy’s batting was outstanding. 

Their bowling was good too. 

Rashid was a potent wrist spinner, something  the Poms  have rarely had. 

We needed our potent wristie Zampa. Lyon was next to useless.. and Smithy lost his length.

I think it was a lack of talent that was the issue - not selectors, Baggers. 

Cummins was also forced to become first change to fit Dorf in. 

Also, Smith and Warner are not the players they were. 

Carey was also a poor keeper, albeit being an excellent batter. 

Lack of talent.. equates to poor selections.  Not picking specialist death bowlers in Kane Richardson and Andrew Tye for more games were poor selections. Not picking Zampa for past three games was a poor selection. Not picking Wade for Maxwell  and Marsh for Stoinis were poor selections.

How was Carey a poor keeper? Did he drop vital chances, miss runouts or stumpings? He made the Oz side on the strength of his keeping. So has his keeping dropped off while his batting has hit another level?

When I watched him, Carey didn’t make too many mistakes. 

Grazor, who was watching the games from North America, thought he made 8 key mistakes that were decisive. 

I did not watch a lot of cricket after 12 midnight EST that Grazor did.

Who is Andrew Tye? 

He did not play Shield cricket in Tas last season did he? 

In the bowling I saw from Lyon and Zampa, I thought the Test incumbent was the better bowler. 

However, I still missed some cricket.
