England coach Bayliss tells skipper Root to quit T20

Bayliss was sanguine about England's 4-0 defeat to Australia, insisting that given injuries and the strength of the opposition, there was little else that could have been done. Liam Livingstone, his team-mate at Lancashire, is a batsman of presence but his own county captain, Ryan McLaren was not alone last season when he observed that Livingstone was still discovering his game. Joe Clarke's undoubted talent has also been sporadically shown at best, although he is coveted by several big-spending counties, among them Nottinghamshire where the England selector, Mick Newell, is director of cricket. After battling in the morning session, Root was unable to take the field.

"Players were being rested for one-day games and not Tests with the focus on the longer format and Gilo, being an inexperienced global coach, just went with it". It was initially thought he was suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration but the European Central Bank confirmed his absence was due to a viral gastroenteritis bug.

However, he didn't resume the day's play, as Moeen Ali walked out with Jonny Bairstow.

Although the 27-year-old, returned to training on Wednesday, he is still feeling the after-effects of the stomach bug.

Then, another Cummins short delivery saw to Mason Crane's dismissal.

James Vince has hit out at the Australian public for being ungracious in victory.

Although Root got off to a few good starts, he could not convert them into big hundreds as England lost the iconic Ashes urn to Australia.

The day-night match in Adelaide, it was suggested, would provide England with a glimmer of hope but Australia racked up over 400 after Root won the toss and surprisingly elected to bowl.

Both finished with averages in the mid-20s and two half-centuries from nine innings, and who you had most faith in depended upon whether you valued style or substance.

Whether Bayliss has improved England in the Test arena at all is questionable, but there's no doubts they have come on leaps and bounds in limited-overs cricket, reaching the final of 2016's World Twenty20 and semis in the 2017 Champions Trophy.

England are preparing for an ODI series against Australia, with the first match getting underway in Melbourne on 14 January.

"All the planning we've talked about, you can't plan because you are there trying to win Test matches, trying to win one-day matches and trying to win T20 matches".

Combative opener David Warner got 441 runs at 63.00, Shaun Marsh 445 at 74.16 to re-announce his credentials for a regular spot, and Usman Khawaja blossomed in the previously problematic, important No 3 spot.

England did not handle the pressure moments throughout the series, and Australia did.

Of course the crowd would love to see their team win each time Australia and England lock horns.
