Sir: In your report from Perth of England's performance on the last day of the match against Western Australia, I am sorry to say Justin Langer's comments sum up the situation. In fact it could be worse. Were we getting in some practice on how to bat out the last day to save the game?

We were not "deprived" of Atherton and Stewart before the game - we sent a squad of our best players on the tour. If we are that worried about Western Australia, God help us when the Tests start.
