Joe Root says England must learn fast from defeat Trevor Bayliss calls ‘shocker’

• Coach watched in disbelief as side collapsed against South Africa
• Captain hits back at ‘very unfair’ criticism from Michael Vaughan

Joe Root said his England side must learn quickly from their series-levelling 340-run defeat by South Africa after a grim collapse on the fourth day in Nottingham that their head coach, Trevor Bayliss, watched in disbelief and described as a “shocker”.

England now head to the third Test at The Oval next week with the series level at one apiece and questions swirling over their inconsistency – they have lost seven of their past 10 Tests and followed their last three victories with a defeat – and a fragile batting line-up that was bowled out for 133 in 44.2 overs chasing a fanciful 474 to win.

Eoin Morgan admits to England regrets after dismal Champions Trophy exit

• Captain says worn Cardiff pitch meant ‘there was no home advantage’
• Pakistan win by eight wickets to set up all-Asian final at The Oval

Eoin Morgan was left lamenting a lack of home advantage and his side’s inability to adapt after a collective dose of paralysis with the bat on a reused Cardiff pitch led to England being bundled out of the Champions Trophy by a resurgent Pakistan.

As Sarfraz Ahmed led his players on a lap of honour in front of a strong and jubilant Pakistani support, England could only reflect on a dismal showing in the eight-wicket defeat in the semi-final, one that means their search for a first global 50-over crown rolls on to the 2019 World Cup on home soil.

England offer Jason Roy chance to blast away doubts at Champions Trophy

• Opener set to retain place against Bangladesh despite Jonny Bairstow’s form
• Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes all likely to be fit after injury niggles

Jason Roy will be told to clear his mind and back his naturally aggressive approach to opening when England’s Champions Trophy campaign gets under way at his home ground of The Oval on Thursday.

With the management optimistic that Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes will all be fit to face Bangladesh in their group opener after recent injury niggles, Roy’s run of four single-figure scores in his past five international innings represents their main headache leading into the tournament curtain-raiser.

Trevor Bayliss: I’m not a dictator, says England cricket coach

Before the Champions Trophy and an Ashes series the Australian intends leaving no stone unturned watching emerging players in the County Championship

A few things have become familiar in Trevor Bayliss’s time as England coach. The wide-brimmed floppy atop his head and permanent long sleeves – Bayliss, like so many Australians, is all too aware of the sun’s threat to those who spend a lifetime working in its glare – is one. A grinning, if not always winning, England team is another. So are the stern look and discreet style – pronouncements, public or private – come only when absolutely necessary.

England’s whirlwind white-ball tour of India tantalises despite clear frustration | Barney Ronay

It is possible to argue England could have won every short‑form game before that final thrashing had they not been undone by a series of improbable events

Take the positives out of that then. Better to burn out than fade away and England’s cricketers certainly ended their white‑ball tour of India in a shared magnesium flare at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The insistence on building towards the Champions Trophy in June has been so relentless it was tempting to ask Eoin Morgan afterwards what positives he would be taking, what lessons learnt, skill-sets executed from losing eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls in Bengaluru – on the bare figures, England’s worst batting collapse in any kind of cricket.

Except of course the end was not a reflection of the whole. This was a tour that brought frustration rather than disintegration. Even the meltdown at the Chinnaswamy was not really a pure collapse, more a reaction to a game that was already gone, with no other way left to play. By the same token it is possible to argue England could have won every short‑form game in India before that final thrashing had they not been undone by a series of improbable events.

So many mistakes on England’s tour to India it is hard knowing where to start | Vic Marks

From an unforgiving schedule to an errant, confusing selection policy, things went wrong quickly and only got worse as a disastrous winter unfolded

The phrase of the tour was “It is not ideal”. Alastair Cook used it when talking about his preparation for the first Test of this expedition in Chittagong, just after his return to Bangladesh having briefly welcomed the arrival of his second child back in England. It was then used when the likes of Jos Buttler, Gareth Batty, Jake Ball, Haseeb Hameed and Jimmy Anderson were tossed into the Test team in India with scarcely any meaningful practice; the same applied to the debuts of Keaton Jennings and Liam Dawson, though the late arrivals did rather well – at least they were fresh.

Captaincy question hangs over Alastair Cook with England stagnating | Ali Martin

There is no rush to hand over the leader’s baton but an early decision would allow Joe Root to bed down in time for the Ashes series next winter

Fronting up to the media after a Test defeat is something Alastair Cook has now done more than any other England captain and after the final-day collapse in Chennai he turned to the room of assembled journalists that had just grilled him in the bowels of the stadium to wish them a merry Christmas and a safe flight home.

If reporting this farewell sounds unctuous then consider the circumstances: the self-destructive tendency of his batsmen, on a pitch that just 24 hours had seen his bowlers ship a torturous 759 for seven, made them the first team in successive Tests to score 400-plus first up only to lose by an innings, in what was a record-equalling eighth England defeat in the year.

Trevor Bayliss says England are ‘upbeat’ as squad land in cyclone-struck Chennai

• Fifth Test against India expected to go ahead despite power cuts
• Head coach backs Alastair Cook to continue as captain into new year

England’s and India’s cricketers landed in Chennai on Tuesday before the final Test of the series, just 24 hours after the city was battered by Cyclone Vardah, the storm that has claimed a reported 18 lives and wreaked devastation across the south‑east coast of the country.

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, which is hosting the fifth Test from Friday, has already said it expects the match to go ahead despite the power cuts and transport problems in the city caused by fallen trees. Both teams have been forced to cancel training on Wednesday as repairs are carried out at the Chepauk Stadium.
