England told how to salvage Ashes series after dismal start vs Australia

England have been told they need to get "angrier within" if they are to start competing in the Ashes by former head coach Trevor Bayliss.

Bayliss, who coached England in three Ashes series and helped mastermind their 2019 World Cup triumph, believes they can learn from Jos Buttler's innings in the second Test in Adelaide.

Although Australia won that game by 275 runs to go 2-0 up in the series, Buttler lasted 207 balls on the final day in a defiant innings which almost saw England escape with a draw.

In his latest column for the Daily Mail, Bayliss insisted England need to "find that determination in all departments" if they are to have a chance of turning the series around.

"The time for talking is over and they have to get out there and mix it up," he said. "They have to get a little angrier within.

"There was an example of what they have to do to get back in this series, starting on Boxing Day in Melbourne, in the last day resolve in Adelaide of Jos Buttler.

"He had that steeliness you need until he was out somewhat freakishly, treading on his stumps. It was like Jos was saying: 'Stuff you, you’re not getting me out.'

"England have to find that determination in all departments — batting, bowling and especially in the field.

"Buttler showed the way with the bat and England have to start by showing they are capable of batting for long periods.

"But the key to that is being in that positive frame of mind so they are still able to take the opportunities to score when they come along. That’s what Australia are doing."

Dawid Malan has insisted the atmosphere within the camp remains positive but accepted there is a "big hill to climb to get back into series".

"The mood is still good, the mood is still positive," Malan said. "We haven't lost the series yet.

"We've got a big hill to climb to get back into series, but that starts in this [third] Test match."
