Former England captain Nasser Hussain has stated that every Test match should be played as if it were an Ashes series final or a World Test Championship (WTC) final.
The Joe Root-led team has already lost the urn after three Tests in the series, and they lost nine Test matches last year, a team record.
"England have had to take after their players in COVID times, both physically and mentally," Hussain wrote, "but for all their good intentions, the extent of their long-term planning and rest-and-rotation policy has cost them Test matches."
"The first reset should involve them looking down at the pitch before any Test and selecting the best team for that game as if it were the World Test Championship final." Pick your team and play as though the score is 2-2 and the Ashes are on the line. A reset involves changing your mindset on the field and making better decisions off of it. Without the mistakes Root and Chris Silverwood have made, Australia is a hard place to visit at the best of times," he wrote.
