England told to go back to basics ahead of Ashes

AFP

AFP, LEEDS (UK): England have been told to improve their cricket basics if they are to acquire the ruthless edge that will see them regain the Ashes.
Caretaker coach Paul Farbrace believes this is something England must do if they are to topple Australia following their 5-0 Ashes thrashing ‘Down Under’ in 2013/14.
Farbrace is set to hand over control in time for the Ashes, which start in Cardiff next month, to Trevor Bayliss after the Australian was recently appointed as England’s new full-time coach in succession to the sacked Peter Moores.
England’s comprehensive 199-run defeat by New Zealand in the second Test at Headingley on Tuesday meant that, for the second series in a row following their tour of the West Indies, they had let slip a 1-0 lead to end up level-pegging at 1-1.
“We have said now for a few series that we have had opportunities to win,” Farbrace explained.
“In the West Indies we should have been 2-0 up going into the last game.
“We weren’t, and it allowed them to come back into it.”
A rash of dropped catches, mostly in the slips, cost England an estimated 182 runs in the second innings at Headingley alone.
