The Ashes: Synthetic pitches could help England adapt to bounce, says David Warner

Weeks of preparing on synthetic wickets could be England’s panacea to their woes in Australia with their batters on track to hit a 131-year low.

At least that’s the advice from David Warner for England’s next trip to Australia in 2025-26, with the tourists now going more than 4000 days without a Test win in the country.

England returned to the nets on Wednesday for a lengthy session at the MCG, on what was meant to be day four of the Boxing Day Test before their horror collapse confirmed their Ashes loss.

There was at least some good news for the tourists, with all players again receiving negative PCR tests after their second nasal assessment in as many days. The six current cases are non-playing members of their camp.

Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad were among those bowling on Wednesday, after being left out of the Boxing Day Test.

And while much of the focus in the build-up was on England’s length with the ball, what can’t be overlooked in what looms as a brutal review is their horror record with the bat.
