England are in disarray and their ragged fielding indicates the team is breaking apart heading into this week's final Ashes Test, Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin said yesterday
England are struggling to avoid a 5-0 Ashes series whitewash after heavy defeats in all four Tests.
They passed up the chance of a nets session at the Sydney Cricket Ground two days before the start of the fifth Test. “I don’t think they’re in a great place, to be perfectly honest,” team vice-captain Haddin told reporters.
“I think you could probably tell a bit of that in their fielding theother day (in the Melbourne Test). I think that’s the first thing to go when you’re struggling a bit.
The batting and bowling, it's an individual thing, but I think the team stuff looked like it was breaking.”
