Captain Joe Root has insisted England are "still massively" in the Ashes series, while coach Trevor Bayliss said Thursday that his team had left "a few scars" on Australia in Adelaide.Another former England captain, Mike Atherton, said the loss of the opening two Tests had eerie similarities to previous tours Down Under, including those spearheaded by Alastair Cook, Andrew Flintoff, and Nasser Hussain.
England have only won once at the WACA - in 1978 - and with the pressure on them to avoid defeat at the Perth venue for first time since 1986 in order to save the Ashes, Starc says he is ready to get stuck in.
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. I guess my rationale behind the decision was that we were a long way in front of the game. "The belief in dressing room is definitely there".
"A lot of people have been asking me that question (about not enforcing the follow-on)", Smith said. 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".
Root couldn't add a single run to his overnight score as he also departed caught behind off Hazlewood.
The England XI includes five players who did not take to the field in the day-night match in Adelaide - Jake Ball, Gary Balance, Ben Foakes, Mason Crane and Tom Curran.
American Airlines glitch gives pilots holiday at Christmas
It all started a few weeks back, when pilots found that they were easily able to schedule time off during the month of December. American says this can be you after all, this holidays.
"That's really disappointing as someone who wants to lead from the front and show the guys to lead the way".
"There were a number of decisions overturned, it was odd", he said.
"We thought if we could come out and bowl well this morning, hit our lengths and get one or two wickets then things can happen quickly".
"It's easy to criticise the umpires and it's easy to make excuses but it's a very hard job. We have to be confident, doing the basics well and just backing up day-in and day-out".
Root said there would continue to be issues with the decision review system (DRS). "Then Josh [Hazlewood] does what he does and allows Pat [Cummins] and me to bowl as fast as we want".
