Despite their collective failures in Australia, both Stoneman and Vince are due to get one last chance to save their Test careers on the forthcoming tour of New Zealand, the squad for which is due to be announced on Tuesday evening. "At the top level it is about making big scores not fifties, twenties and thirties but they have shown enough that they should get another couple of games".

"I think it's very much horses for courses and Australia, in particular, is somewhere where you do need at least two pace bowlers", he said. A strong England outfit gives them the chance to test bench strength in the bowling department, including Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye. Under him the English team won 15 Tests and lost 18. It would not be the first time England have approached a New Zealand tour with calls for experimentation, but a challenging Kiwi attack lies in wait.

Australia's four front-line bowlers-Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon-dominated the series, emulating predecessors Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle and Lyon in the 5-0 home series whitewash four years earlier. "The one good thing from the players" point of view is that there have been no cracks in morale, so that will be good for the team going forward.

Cape Town - Even while in the midst of now see-sawing combat against top-ranked India, the magnitude of South Africa's quest to earn a maiden post-isolation home Test series triumph over Australia is suddenly in even sharper focus.

"You can be the best coach in the world, but if batsmen keep getting themselves out for 20 or 30, or 50 or 60, you're not going to win many County Championship games, let alone Test matches".

Ironically, during the Ashes, Bayliss had said he was the right man to lead England.

While they put up a tough fight against South Africa and India at home, it's pretty clear Trevor Bayliss and Andrew Strauss have been placng a lot of emphasis on the shorter format by having a different team for Tests and the ODIs.

Perry revealed her approach to Idol , though her fellow judges hinted that she's "blunt" with the contestants - in a nice way. But I get judged on that all the time-aesthetics-even from whenever I started.

The declaration left England with an hour to bat till tea, and nearly instantly they found a different kind of trouble.

"If we do go down the track in New Zealand, or in the summer, of picking some new young batters, everyone at home in the United Kingdom has got to expect that the results might not be quite what we would like".

Of the inexperienced members of England's batting line-up in Australia, Dawid Malan scored a maiden Test century and ended the series as England's leading runscorer.

"Personally, I love the Test cricket more than the white-ball cricket".

"I think he handled it pretty well". It's something we weren't able to replicate and something we want to find'.

From the recent Ashes Test squad, the Yorkshire batsman Gary Ballance, the Nottinghamshire seamer Jake Ball and the Surrey all-rounder Tom Curran miss out.
