England are in disarray and their ragged fielding indicates the team is breaking apart heading into this week's final Ashes Test

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.”
