Australia v England, 2nd Test, Adelaide, 2nd day December 5, 2010

Australia have no attack leader - Chappell

29

Ian Chappell believes Australia's selectors may be forced to skip a generation in a bid to identify a new attack leader, after the three seamers chosen for the second Test at Adelaide - Doug Bollinger, Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle - suffered one of Australia's most demoralising days in the field in recent Ashes history.

On a blisteringly hot day, with temperatures exceeding 37 degrees, England's batsmen cruised to 2 for 317, a lead of 72, with Alastair Cook racking up his second consecutive hundred in a tally of 371 runs since his last dismissal on the opening day of the series. Though Australia had their chances early on, most notably when Jonathan Trott survived a run-out chance and a catch in the gully in quick succession, England cashed in with alacrity as soon as the new ball threat had been negated.

Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Chappell nominated the 19-year-old Josh Hazlewood, who is currently sidelined with a stress fracture, as the type of player in whom they will have to invest, much as was the case during their last period of rebuilding in the 1980s, when Craig McDermott was also blooded as a teenager. "The fast bowlers I see are handy back-up guys, but not attack leaders, not even into the future," he said. "Australia has got to be looking outside this group and into the next group.

"One of the problems for Australia, if you're a batting side, you say to yourself they've got efficient fast bowlers, but they don't have an attack leader," he added. "Mitchell Johnson was for a little while, and that's why he was such a big loss to the team, even if he was an inconsistent bowling leader.

"Before him there was Brett Lee, before him obviously Glenn McGrath, and before him Craig McDermott and Merv Hughes. These are the fellows you look to on a day like [yesterday], if they get a wicket it helps the rest of the attack. Instead England looked to the scoreboard and thought, let's get on top of them, let's grind them down, because they haven't got that guy who can come back and break open the innings."

Despite his criticism, Chappell said he admired the efforts that the current attack had put in, but felt they were badly let down by their fielders and afterwards lacked the skills to get back on level terms. "Australia had to get early wickets and keep England in bounds," he said. "They got as big a gift as Australia gave on the first day, when Andrew Strauss made a monumental blunder. But they needed to go on from there.

"One of the reasons why Bollinger and Harris were brought in was not just their bowling ability, but they are the type of guys who give you all you've got," he said. "When it's such a hot day, and Saturday was the worst type of hot day, with that hot northerly wind, it's terrible. You've got to know in the back of your mind on such a day, you can't afford to miss opportunities."

One man who didn't offer a single opportunity throughout his day's work, however, was Cook, who finished the day on 136 not out, having compiled an innings that Chappell believed epitomised England's single-minded attitude to their Ashes campaign.

"I'm staggered at his endurance ability," he said. "Forget the batting, just look at the endurance he showed to back up such a long stint at the crease at Brisbane and repeat the dose here at Adelaide. England have talked a lot in the lead-up about how they were determined to make this a special series, but it's one thing to talk about it, you've actually got to do, and England are doing it."

    CHAPPEL fails to understand that players are artists (not office workers) for whom quality of art 1st, appreciation 2nd and money least motivating force. Professionalism is near antonym of artistry….. Remember office workers are mere average people but to compete at world stage u need gifted artists who r performing at their brilliant best like SEHWAG HAYDEN, PONTING, TENDULKAR, LARA …not mere avg people……

  • on December 5, 2010, 20:51 GMT

    CHAPPELL on the other hand was handed jewels and he has muddled them - He did this to TENDULKAR and now with AUSIES…..Chappell always brings in the book of batting & bowling. SEHWAG & GALYE, LARA have burnt the book and proved it a piece of rubbish obsolete one. In Bowling Waqar and Wasim did the same to bowling book (Dravid follows book & has hardly won INDIA any matches). Now this office worker Chapell should himself feel it and resign before he is called in for a sealed room meeting. But since salary is motivation for office workers, I don't see him resigning on his own accord - he will be fired.

  • on December 5, 2010, 20:44 GMT

    I think atleast 5 changes are to be made in this Australian team to be any competitive for the remaining of the Ashes series. Watson(Captain), Huges, Ponting(Only as a player), Mike Hussey, David Hussey, White, Haddin, Smith, Hauritz, Harris and Siddle.

    Send North somewhere to the North and tell him to work on his footwork. Send Clarke for some patience and leadership development classes. Send Johnson for regaining his FOCUS. Doherty is too inexperienced at this level and not someone to bank upon for the future.

    Next to retire: Ponting is losing the plot. He cant think of a winning team by him not performing high class. Clarke is no LEADER. Australia is wasting time on him to RIPE.

  • on December 5, 2010, 19:48 GMT

    Aussies need some major changes in their line up for 3rd Test as they have too many out of form players like Ponting, Clarke and North. here is my team for 3rd Test: 1) S Katich 2) Ph Hughes 3) R Ponting 4) Mike Hussey 5) Cameron White 6) Shane Watson 7) Brad Haddin 8) St Smith 9) M Johnson 10) P Siddle 11) S Clark Keeping in mind that English bowlers always struggle against left hand opening pair and their batting always collapse against Leg spin bowling. Also this team can bat till no. 9 !!!

  • bumsonseats on December 5, 2010, 19:03 GMT

    does not seem all that time ago when chappel said aussies should only play england in oz for 3 tests per ashes series. he forgot that the supports england bring. and that australians wanted a better contested ashes series as did their supporters. well u have got it and u dont seem to like it. reminds me off a british comedy ( they dont like it up them mr mannering. dpk

  • addiemanav on December 5, 2010, 17:43 GMT

    i wud agree with chappel!when u look at the line-up and ask the question-"who will lead the pack with others being backups?"there's no one!!sometimes u only hav 1 leader and the rest r poor back-ups but here aus hav only support bowlers!!they need a 'big brother' who will fire the first shot!!if u take a look at other teams,eng for example,has anderson as the leader,with broad & finn supporting him.also swann,who is as aggressive as anderson..eng shud do well bcoz they hav a settled line up with evry bowler knowing his job.with india zaheer is the leader and hopefully ishant & sreeshant back him up well in SA.and if bhajji finds form ,this group is more than handy!!SA as well..its no surprise that why these teams are doing so well!!pak had some gr8 bowlers but now their future is in doubt..WI bowlers r in and out..same case with NZ and to an extent SL when malinga isnt there..so i think that if u hav 1-2 top bowlers with rest supporting,the team is alwayz going to be tough to beat!

  • IAS2009 on December 5, 2010, 17:18 GMT

    Australia had a good run now it is time for other champion, it is good to see Aussies struggle though, Westindies were on top of their game for a long period of time and it was few key people combined that kept the team going, in last few years the core of aussies team is retired, now they have to pluck every open position, they had key players who always perform at key moment, the combined tally of wickets of Warne, Mcgrath, Lee and some very aggressive batting of Slater, Waugh Hayden was key to test match success, some of those players are very good catchers in slip too which is problem with this team too. Warne, Waughs and Mark Taylor were excellent slip catchers. There are many holes in this team it will take a while to get back on top, Westindies could not find the same level of talent till now (they have some other problems also). Let wait and see what happens now.

  • Scgboy on December 5, 2010, 16:59 GMT

    true but at least we aren't in full fall like the windies.something that bothers me till this very day..This is not the early eighties , now those were tough times , just ask Alan Border.

  • SnowSnake on December 5, 2010, 13:11 GMT

    Shane Bond, Bret Lee and S. Aktar were the last breed of fast bowlers in test cricket. All of today's fast bowlers are enhanced fast medium pacers, who rarely bowl over 90mph mark in tests. I doubt anyone would want to bowl fast in tests because there is money to be made else where. People who can bowl 6 consecutive deliveries over 145 kmph reserve their talent to lucrative T20 cricket. If these bowlers play tests then they bowl at a lesser speed to avoid injuries. Over a career, a bowler wants to maximize his earning and bowling slow in tests to minimize injuries is a rational move by a bowler.

    Australia is talking, Poms doing.Ponting started the mind game by saying." Cook's record is not good in Australia, Poms batting is vulnerable, Bla, Bla. Cook is cookings kangaroos and making a soup for Aussies after the Ashes, LOL.

  • chappelis_last_blast on December 5, 2010, 9:39 GMT

    Ian Chappell you should be coach and chairman of selectors with Mark Taylor, Shane Warne and Greg Chappell the other selectors. Well probably not coach because you don't believe in them! I bet then the team would be younger and stronger for the long term. This would'nt happen of course.

  • on December 5, 2010, 9:18 GMT

    ponting's pic says it all here :)) rofl :) there is no heartening scene for me than seein him cry this way !!!! lol

  • Pramod75 on December 5, 2010, 9:00 GMT

    Very right assessment. However, I think AUS Batting is still the key. I dont think there is much of a difference in both the bowling attacks. Much of what will happen in the series will depend on how AUS react in the 2nd innings. Right now, much of England's performance is based on their self belief in batting. If AUS fights back and saves the match, it will inspire the AUS bowling attack. And with England or any other cricket team, it might take months to build that self belief, but everything can be thrashed out in one day. All it requires is one magical display of skill and right now, it is easy to bank on batting than bowling.

  • KAMP24 on December 5, 2010, 8:38 GMT

    Again Ian Chappel is mistaken. No "attack leader" - hahahahaha - There is no attack LOL!!! Xavier Doherty are you serious?!? Is that the best you have ? Doug Bollinger is prob the best out of the lot and thats saying sumthing. Siddle just runs in and doesn't do much with the ball.... and Ryan Harris .... Well Ryan Harris is no Dale Steyn!!!! I look seeing Australia struggling.... So South Africa No. 1 by New Year and Australia down to no. six .... Hahahahaha Brilliant!!!

  • on December 5, 2010, 8:18 GMT

    Agree wth Chappelli, this a very determined English side...Looks like the Aussies will have to make some serious changes in Perth. Out North, Doherty..and maybe a quickie. In ??? ??? ???.

  • on December 5, 2010, 8:16 GMT

    Exactly. I have been saying this for ages. i have said guys like hazlewood and trent copeland need to come straight into the aussie side. Would be good to see warne work with cam boyce from qld. He can turn his leggies quite alot. Smith, O'keefe, khawaja, hughes, paine. these are the guys that need to be given the chance, so australia can rebuild. I agree that the current bowlers are good back up like a bichel, kaspa, reiffell etc. good solid bowlers but not leaders or top class bowlers. Really did anyone except for the selectors think doherty would have done anything in test match cricket.

  • Aussasinator on December 5, 2010, 8:07 GMT

    Dont they also need a good No. 3 batsman and a good skipper?

  • Okakaboka on December 5, 2010, 7:59 GMT

    Here we go again..this is a problem. Why is it nearly always a NSW player that gets nominated to be the 'future ' attack leader. From my observation of the two, young Pattinson from Victoria is a more exciting prospect. There isn't much difference between the two but always it's the NSW player. Is this why nothing is done about Clarke being Vice Captain of the test team and Captain of the one dayers? He SHOULDN'T even be in the one day teams and there is now a very strong case to drop him from the test team. He isn't fit and he knows it. If you can't do the right thing by your team mates and country, what right have you got to be captain?? Tell me where I am wrong in this argument. White has been a much more successful Captain than Clarke...and he is a much brighter boy! If Clarke ends up Captain after Ponting resigns on losing the ashes this year, then we really are in for half a decade of losing to any country who turns up in cricket gear. Clarke is a label, not a cricket great!

  • abmangera on December 5, 2010, 7:10 GMT

    R u right Ian.selectors r not right now.Australia wining ashes But pick up this team next 3 test . (1) SR Watson (2) SM Katich (3) RT Ponting (4) CL White (5) MEK Hussey (6) Usman Khawaja or Callum Ferguson (7) BJ Haddin (8) SPD Smith or NM Hauritz (9) BW Hilfenhaus (10) SR Clark (11) RJ Harris/ DE Bollinger. Selectors select this team Australia wining ashes comfortable.

  • RJHB on December 5, 2010, 6:55 GMT

    Parallels of the current team with the post-greats Aussie team from the 80's are scary to look at. Think back if you can to a time when Border, a poor captain for a long time, was the only one really making runs(parallel: Ponting, crap captain,sort of making runs). Kim Hughes was a talented gun sometimes but perhaps a little weak of character (Clarke). Other batsmen were a mix of flawed veteran has-beens like Yallop, Dyson and Hilditch (Katich and Hussey) and mediocre state players like Wood and Ritchie (North). And the bowlers, again a mix of old timers in Hogg and Thommo (Clark and Lee), honest but perhaps not quite up to it triers in McCurdy, Gilbert and Rackemann (Siddle, Hilfy and Bollinger) and an often wayward gun in Lawson (Johnson). Of others there were so-so allrounders in O'Donnell (Watson), average keepers in Phillips and Zoehrer (Haddin) and a host of mostly failed spinners from Bright and Bennett to Holland and Sleep( Hogg, Casson, White, McGain, Hauritz etc)!Scary indeed

  • yundogg on December 5, 2010, 6:38 GMT

    I have been an ardent admirer of Australian cricket, despite being a Pakistani fan. Australia has a been dominant force in the game for the last decade and a half, and embarrassed Pakistan on multiple occasions. However, the chinks appeared in the armour on India's last tour to Australia and are clearly evident now. With the exodus of the likes of McGrath, Warne, Gilchrist and Hayden, etc Oz is now relegated to the mid tier of the Test playing nations. Mr. Chappel's remarks continue to be ludicrous...Just 3 months ago ( on this very site), he claimed that Australia had the best bowling attack in the game, ahead of Pakistan, South Africa and England and now they do not have an attack leader...Wake up and smell the coffee Mr. Chappell..this is mediocre attack at best..England are 1100/4 since the last test...Not an attack that can bowl a quality side out twice in a test match

  • on December 5, 2010, 6:27 GMT

    Lovely, lovely cricket by England. So for the first time in half century, Australia has no attack leader and English batsmen piling up twin centuries match after match, hammering double centuries at a tremendous strike rate. Australians, to say the least, are already given pretty hard times by the batting machines of India and then again by a bunch of close-knit team led by a couple of batsmen of classical mould and an all time great spinner.

  • boris6491 on December 5, 2010, 6:14 GMT

    I agree with you totally Ian. Undoubtedly the inclusions of Bollinger and Harris were good moves. But neither can be truly classed as the leader of the pack the way McGrath was or Johnson was for an extremely brief period. If only we had Lee or Tait..
