England equals Bangladesh’s embarrassing record

With this rate, England has set a very embarrassing record in Test cricket. England has equaled Bangladesh’s unbeaten record of losing the most Test matches in a year. This was England’s ninth defeat in Test cricket this year. In 2003, Bangladesh lost 9 Test matches and after 18 years, England equaled this embarrassing record of Bangladesh.

England have also lost two Tests against India at home this year. Team India toured England this year. India were 2-1 up in the five-match Test series, but the last Test match had to be postponed due to Covid-19. Speaking of England’s performance in Australia, the team has not won a single match in the last 13 Tests.

The situation in England is bad

Playing his first Test, fast bowler Scott Boland took 6 for 7 before Australia lost to England by an innings and 14 runs before lunch on the third day of the third Ashes Test to take a 3-0 lead in the Ashes series. England, who were 31 for four yesterday, were bowled out for six. Earlier, Australia scored 267 in reply to England’s 185 in the first innings and took an 82-run lead.

Ben Stokes was bowled by Mitchell Starc in the fifth over. Boland, 32, sent Johnny Bairstow to the pavilion in the first over. Then in the second over he fell victim to the world’s second number Test batsman Joe Root (26). Mark Wood and Oli Robinson were out in their third over and both failed to open the scoring. Cameron Green bowled James Anderson to end England’s second innings in 26.4 overs.

Boland made history

Boland took seven wickets for 55 runs in the match. He is the second Indigenous player to play Test cricket for the Australian men’s team. For this performance he received the Johnny Mulag Medal of Player of the Match. The award is in honor of the Australian Indigenous team that visited England in 1868. Australia captain Pat Cummins says his side will try to win the series 5-0.

“The Ashes series has had a profound effect on your Test career and is an opportunity to cement your identity,” said Pat Cummins. “We have to come back strong and try to win the next two matches,” said England captain Root. Earlier, the third day’s play started after the night corona test of the players of both the teams. “All the results are negative,” Cricket Australia said. The match started half an hour late after two members of the England support staff tested positive for corona on the second day on Monday. The fourth Test will start on January 5 in Sydney.
