We've gotta factor Smith into all this...Blokes unreal,seems to know what the bowlers gonna do
before he does it...would def be going to Oval for a decider at very least if not for him..
Whatever he sanctioned against SA....have to admire him as a Batsman...as good as I've seen..

Not had the best of luck...Anderson breaking down in first..Losing Stokes as a bowler this one..
But No Excuses...poor selections and poor performances have done for us,end of the day..

After Sunday,didn't really care bout Oval...which really Pissed me off,but more I think about it,
we've gotta do some face saving,and don't let them appear to walk away with the Ashes easily,
at least get a drawn series by beating them there..

Assume they'll keep Stokes in as a Bat if can't bowl...so think I'd be tempted to give Curran a go at
expense of Buttler,or get Woakes back in,I like Woakes,but really interested see what Curran can do.
Did he sanction it?
He's the Captain, OZ, a loved and respected one at that....tho Bancroft done the tampering,
He and Warner would have Known what he was doing...Evidently he showed Bancroft how to do it.
Is why all 3 got bans...
But in Fairness.....Mike Atherton,was caught with grit in his pockets...and Imran Khan had a
bloody bottle top in his....
It's not an unprecedented thing....

FFS SLOW DOWN openers.
They just seem to be locked in a perpetual “50 overs” mental state.
