The batting coach is surely on thin ice after a display like that.
Plus, since Cook was made to ditch his mentor as England batting coach, has any England batsman other than Bairstow actually improved?
Fortunately for the batting coach he has a water-tight alibi as he was in the Caribbean, leading the South to their first ever defeat against the North. Should he have been in NZ instead?
Was he in Australia for the Ashes? If he was but wasn't for NZ is that a sign of complacency?
