Australia plumb new depths in second Test

Reuters, LONDON

“Our first innings with the bat really let us down, it was not acceptable and against good opposition it’s hard to win from that position,” Clarke said. “We’re putting extra pressure and expectation on our bowlers, our top seven has experience, but once we lose one wicket we’re losing two or three in quick succession. We know we have to win the next three Tests to win this series. It’s going to be hard, but I’d be silly to go into Manchester expecting to lose, we’ll do everything in our power to improve our game, but England outperformed us once again in this Test match.”
