Bayliss: Crane has to start somewhere

  Bayliss: Crane has to start somewhere England coach Trevor Bayliss has hinted that young leg-spinner Mason Crane is set to make his Test debut.England coach Trevor Bayliss has hinted that young leg-spinner Mason Crane is set to make his Test debut against Australia in Sydney this week.

Even the latest to be given a go, Adil Rashid, who went to play 10 Tests for England , endured a horror show on his debut against Pakistan in 2015, his 34 overs yielding 0-163. Crane performed better than all of those on day two here after England rebuilt their failing first innings total.

Moeen has endured a grim tour, however. As well as claiming just three wickets in the first four Tests at a cost of 135 apiece, he has looked devoid of confidence Now, with the Ashes gone and England deciding that Moeen may benefit from a spell out if the firing line, Crane looks set to win his Test debut .

Mason Crane has endured a horror introduction to Test cricket after returning the most expensive figures ever by an English debutant.

On an SCG pitch that favoured spin, the rookie legspinner went for 1-193 during Australia's first innings of the fifth Ashes Test.

His figures surpassed Devon Malcolm's 2-166 against Australia at Nottingham in 1989 as the worst ever by an Englishman in his maiden Test.

The runs from Crane's 48 overs were the fifth most conceded by a debutant as Australia batted for 193 overs to establish a 303-run lead.

The Ashes: False comfort should not be drawn from Australia's triumph

  The Ashes: False comfort should not be drawn from Australia's triumph The mystique of the Ashes will ensure large crowds pour into the Sydney Cricket Ground for the final Test match of the summer, despite the urn already being reclaimed by Australia in Perth before Christmas. The avarice of administrators has compressed the scheduling of Test matches and is even exerting pressure to shorten the matches themselves to four days.

His return was the third most expensive by an Englishman and the third most expensive in an Ashes Test.

Crane, who bowled just three maidens, was only spared further punishment when Australia declared their innings at 7-649 halfway through the second session on day four.

The 20-year-old made one Sheffield Shield appearance for NSW 10 months ago.

Australia peg back England after rain delay

  Australia peg back England after rain delay Australia took two wickets in the hour before tea, including that of Alastair Cook, to leave England on 122 for three at the break on a rain-disrupted opening day of the fifth and final Ashes test on Thursday. Captain Joe Root, who won the toss and elected to bat, and Dawid Malan will both resume after the break on 16 not out looking to bat long into the evening to give the tourists the chance of a consolation victory.After the opening session had been washed out by light rain, Mark Stoneman and James Vince both made starts under brightening skies before being caught behind off quick Pat Cummins.

However, he received no favourable treatment from the Sydney crowd and was frequently booed as he failed to release the ball and received a bronx cheer when he did.

His only wicket came on day three when Usman Khawaja charged down the pitch at him to be stumped by Jonny Bairstow.

He should have had Khawaja earlier that day when he trapped the Australian century-maker lbw but had it taken off him due to a no-ball.

Comment: England’s bowling stocks are grim .
England fought harder in this Ashes than they did during their 5-0 humiliation five years ago, but what this series exposed is their awful lack of bowling options .England’s management must be disturbed by the fact the only bowler who was effective this summer was 35-year-old James Anderson, a cricketer in the twilight days of his Test career.The other seven bowlers they used in this series – Stuart Broad, Tom Curran, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Craig Overton, Jake Ball and Mason Crane – combined to average 65 with the ball. That is a sickening stat for England.
