The Ashes: England look to regroup after ‘kick up the bum’ video review session

England are banking on a team meeting described as “brutally honest” and “a kick up the bum” to spark an almighty Ashes comeback.

The tourists must defy history if they are to come back from 2-0 down and reclaim the urn, starting with Sunday’s Boxing Day Test at the MCG.

The only Ashes side to come back from losing the first two Tests and winning the series was Sir Don Bradman’s 1936-37 Australians.

Soon after their 275-run belting in Adelaide, England’s batters were made to sit through a video selection of their dismissals and home truths were laid bare.

“This was more a kick up the bum,” said bowler Mark Wood.

“Those brutally honest conversations … we probably needed it.”
