‘It was hot out there’: England wails slow over rate penalty against Australia

England have addressed the authorities about accelerating their play after being docked five world test championshipspoints and their whole match expense for neglecting to traverse their requires overs against Australia in the first Test in Ashes.

England were controlled to be five overs short in the nine wicket rout at the Gabba after time allowances were thought about, with match referee David Boon, the previous Australia Test opener forcing the approval.

players are fined 20% of their match expense for each over their side neglects to bowl in the designated time, while the group is punished one point for each over short.

Chris Silverwood, England coach told British media, “What hurts most is the Test Championship points.”

“This hits the lads in the pocket, however the thing that really gets us is the points because we are competing to get in that final.

“We’ve been through it with the match referee on areas we can improve.”

“It was our first Test for a while. We had not had that warm-up match, so the guys were not used to getting around all the time and it was hot out there.”

Australia passed up the debut WTC last in July after being docked points for their delayed over rate during the second Test against India in Melbourne.

Although, with James Anderson and Stuart Broad accessible for the subsequent test in the wake of being refreshed for the opener, selectors might go with an all-crease assault in Adelaide and drop filter, who drained 102 runs from his 13 overs.

that would put England under more pressure to watch the clock as they attempt to even out the five test series against the Ashes holders.
