The Analyst: England's batting collapse

BBC Sport's cricket analyst Simon Hughes looks in detail at how England's batting line-up collapsed on the third day in Adelaide.

Hughes singles out Joe Root for giving away his wicket too easily to Nathan Lyon and describes the batting of Kevin Pietersen against Peter Siddle as "stupid" and "irresponsible".

Fast bowler Mitchell Johnson tore through again, taking 7-40 as England were bowled out for a feeble 172 to concede a first-innings deficit of 398 runs.
