Former Australian cricketer Ed Cowan has criticized the Joe Root-led England squad that is touring Australia for Ashes 2021-22. The former Australian opener Ed Cowan said that he has not seen a worst touring squad than the current English team in the last 20 overs.

Ed Cowan’s views come after England faced miserable defeats against Australia in the ongoing Ashes 2021-22. England are 0-2 down in the series after losing the first two games against Australia. Moreover, the matches were highly one-sided with Australia dominating the visitors in both games.

I Am Actually Starting To Feel Sorry For The Touring Team: Ed Cowan

While speaking to The ABC Grandstand Cricket podcast, Ed Cowan criticized England’s poor performance against Australia, especially on visitor’s soil. He also said that Test cricket needs great contests and we are not seeing that in the ongoing Ashes 2021-22 series.

“It is fair to say I genuinely can’t remember a worse touring squad in the last 20 years. Maybe the West Indies in the mid-2000s when they had that awkward transition. But this could be a huge blowout”.

“It kind of makes you sad because Test cricket needs great contests. It needs a strong England. It needs a strong Australia and it needs strong Ashes. We are not really seeing that at all. England have won two Ashes Tests in Australia in the last 15 years.

“And beating the c**p out of them isn’t fun. It is not good for the game. I feel sorry for them. I’m actually starting to feel sorry for the touring team,” Ed Cowan said.

Facing batting collapses in the ongoing Ashes 2021-22, England have already lost the first two games by big margins. The visitors lost the 1st Test by 9 wickets and the 2nd Test by 275 runs. If they lose the next game, Australia will capture the series. Australia vs England 3rd Test commences on December 26 at Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne.
