England is considered as one of the formidable sides in the red-ball format. However, their performances in the longest format in 2021 have been quite dismaying. The team endured a poor outing against India in the home and away series earlier this year.

The script hasn’t changed for England in the ongoing Ashes as well. Australia dominated the visitors in the first two games and are in complete command of the third Test as well. The team was bowled out for 185 in the first inning of the Melbourne Test.

England have scored 147, 297, 236, 192, and 185 in the series so far. In fact, out of the 28 innings that England have played in 2021, they have been bowled out for under 200 a dozen times.

Meanwhile, Twitter is in disbelief looking at England’s dismal numbers in 2021. Former Australia cricketer Damien Martyn took to Twitter and said there is clearly something wrong with the England team. England have evolved their cricket in white-ball format but their performance in Test cricket has taken a massive dip. The team is laced with stroke-makers but lack batters who can spend time at the wicket.

“Clearly something is wrong. From a batting point of view just look at the 2021 batting averages for England. #ashes,” Martyn’s Tweet read.
