However, Cricket Australia XI coach <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ryan-harris" target="_blank">Ryan Harris</a> opined that England s batting line-up looked vulnerable, and Alastair Cook was rusty with his batting. <p></p> <p></p>Barring Mark Stoneman, skipper Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, none of the batsmen could rise to the occasion. England s bowling was top-notch as Chris Woakes scalped 4 wickets while James Anderson and Craig Overton claimed three wickets each. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ben-stokes" target="_blank">Ben Stokes</a> absence is surely hurting England; he is currently caught up in his own street-brawl case. <p></p> <p></p>Cook managed to make a mere 47 runs in the match. Harris particularly pointed out England s batting looks weak with no Stokes at No. 6 or 7 while speaking to <i>cricket.com.au</i>. <p></p> <p></p><b>'England s batting was vulnerable'</b> <p></p> <p></p> It was, especially with no (Ben) Stokes at six or seven. But it depends on how the boys bowl to them. If the boys bowl loose and wide, there s trouble. But we have got some good intel and some good knowledge on what we want to do which I will pass on to our (Test) bowlers. <p></p> <p></p><b>'Alastair Cook looked rusty'</b> <p></p> <p></p> He looked a bit rusty. He obviously had a good county season, he is probably coming off some good form. But it s different in our conditions. He is pretty good in these conditions, he had a good 2010-11 (series) here so he knows what he has to do. I m sure he will look forward to another hit next week we all know what he can do, we know he s world-class.
