FORMER England skipper Michael Vaughan believes England will solely take wickets if Australia “get bored”, with “no swing, no seam, no tempo and no spin” of their assault.
Vaughan was talking after England endured a torrid third day in Perth, taking simply ONE wicket all day.
Steve Smith notched a elegant double-ton, whereas Mitchell Marsh closed-in on his personal, because the vacationers evidently lacked any edge to their bowling.
Australia closed day three on 549-Four, a lead of 156, as England’s bowlers toiled on the WACA.
On the shut of play, Vaughan informed BT Sport: “It’s a disastrous day. I believe as we speak confirmed now we have no swing, no seam, no tempo or no spin.
“How are you going to get wickets? You might be principally counting on an Australian batting line-up becoming bored, chipping one within the air…
“However you may see of their eyes that they don’t seem to be going to do this.
“They’re determined to get the Ashes again and it’s important to say as we speak is the day, in my view, that the Ashes can be staying in Australia.

“Trying on the sport state of affairs, England will in all probability must bat 4 and a half periods to try to save the Check match and preserve the Ashes alive.
