England batting coach fuming

12:56 pm on 5 January 2014

The England cricket team's batting coach Graham Gooch has blasted his side's batting performance in the Ashes series.

Following England's humiliating first innings total of 155, Australia will resume their second innings on day three of the fifth Test at Sydney at 140 for four, a lead of 311.

England's leading test runscorer has criticised his players for throwing their wickets away during the series and says they need to face up to the flak they will now receive.

Gooch says his players have made elementary errors with the bat and have not been able to exert any pressure on the Australian bowlers.
