Video - Saker On 'Disappointing' First Day

England bowling coach David Saker pulls no punches on how he saw the first day of the third Ashes Test in Perth, saying it was a disappointing one for his bowlers.

Australia closed the day on 326 for six after England were unable to take advantage of reducing them to 129 for four and then 143 for five.

He says that for a team that prides itself on bowling in the right areas for long periods of time, this was a disappointing performances and that the quick bowlers bowled too many short balls.

However, looking ahead he says that there is no reason why England can't take four wickets in the morning and the pitch is good enough for the batsmen to put them ahead of Australia with a strong performance.
