Ashes: Frustrated England captain Joe Root criticises bowling after second-Test defeat

England made the same mistakes in their loss to Australia in the second Test, according to Joe Root.

England's batting and catching were also criticized by the captain.

"We made the same mistakes as last week, that's disappointing." You can't afford that.

Buttler was the only England player to score a century on the fifth day as the tourists tried to get a draw.

"We need to bowl full," said Root. We created chances as soon as we were able to. That's frustrating.

We did it four years ago and didn't learn from it.

We talk about length all the time.

We look at the data to see what will hit the stumps. It's well communicated, but it's not always simple and people get caught up in the game.

The Australians left more deliveries than the English during the Test, with 23% of deliveries left compared to the English's 17%.

In the first Test of the Australia vs England series, England were beaten by 120 runs and were criticized for bowling too short in the first.

Steven Finn said that Root sounded angry when he gave his assessment.

Finn said that he said that they were too short and adjusted too late.

When you're asked to bowl first, your mentality is a bit more defensive than it was when you decided to bowl first. You can bowl a little bit shorter.

Jonathan Agnew said that Joe Root wouldn't have said that publicly unless he wanted to get that message across to his bowlers.

England dropped seven catches in the second Test, taking their total for the series to 12. Australia has dropped just five.

Five Australians have made centuries with two of them, Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head, going on to hit centuries in the two Tests so far.

On day two in Adelaide, Robinson took a no-ball and Ben Stokes did the same to David Warner.

"If we keep missing chances and don't give ourselves an opportunity to get into the Test match with the bat, we won't be able to win Test matches over here," he said.

We have to find a way to build those partnerships and make big contributions.

The no-balls we keep bowling and the chances we have missed are the most disappointing thing for me.

England can still win the series.

England has never come back from 2-0 down to win the series. Australia achieved the feat once in 1936.

The remaining three games can be won by the side that wins them, according to Root.

He said he was still convinced we could come back.

It's frustrating because we're much better than what we've done so far.

We need to execute the plans better. We have to show what we did today and how hungry we are in the next three games.
