“I think, from a batting point of view, there’s been some good signs during this series,” Bayliss said. “We don’t come across those types of wickets very often at all, or at all. 

“The only thing you can do is experience it more often. There’s no quick fix but, as we saw, there were batters in the two Tests who were able to bat for a period of time and score runs. If they can do it once they’ve got it in them but it’s just about doing it more often and more consistently and learning from those innings,” In four innings, Joe Root’s average of 24.50 was the highest of England’s top five.
