Recently married Henry Blofeld says that England could be on the end of an Ashes series whitewash if they are beaten in the second Test.
The Ashes score made for unpleasant Breakfast reading this morning.
England failed to capitalise on their promising start yesterday, with Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin both making centuries, before Australia declared on 570-9.
England's reply was less than confidence building, with Essex batsman Alastair Cook being clean bowled by Mitchell Johnson for just 3.
However, Michael Carberry and Joe Root steadied the ship to some extent to guide England to 35-1 at the close of the play, but which ever way you look at it, Cook and his team now have a mountain to climb to save this Test and perhaps the series.

Cricket Australia have apologised for any offence caused by an ill-judged tweet about Essex spin bowler Monty Panesar.
The tweet featured four men, apparently Sikhs, dressed as Teletubbies.
Cricket Australia have now removed the tweet.
Meanwhile, Panesar, a surprise recall to the team, responded with a wicket in the first day of the second test in Adelaide.
He dismissed batsman Steven Smith, but also dropped a catch.
Australia will resume day 2 on 273-5.
