The Ashes: Ryan Harris believes Australia will exploit England's "vulnerable" batting

Ashes Series: George Garton to join England squad after Jake Ball suffers ankle strain

After Ellyse Perry's Australian record of 213 not out batted the English out of the match on Saturday, captain Heather Knight led England's resistance. I'll take as much back to the guys in Brisbane next week as I can.

So securely did Knight occupy the crease that Australia's captain Rachael Haynes was compelled to accept the inevitability of a stalemate around an hour before the scheduled close of play, England having forged into a lead that made them safe from defeat.

Even so, with the first Test just 11 days away, Bayliss acknowledges an ongoing issue. "We have games like that, where we lose wickets like that, and it is a concern", said Bayliss as media reports suggest.

'The number one thing for us is that 60s are not enough - we need 160s, ' he said.

The England batsmen struck five half-centuries on their way to a 192-run victory in a four-day warm-up match against Cricket Australia XI.

"The batsmen realise they have got to do better and they are working hard to do that", he added.

'Our more inexperienced batters have actually spent some time in the middle.

'It would be great if we could have some hundreds, that's for sure, ' Bayliss said, while also citing the more positive angle that those who set out for Australia with most questions to answer have so far made most of the runs. While Wellington only took two wickets for the match, they were both classics and will provide highlights that will survive her career. "We will certainly have to do that during the Test series".

"I think England's batting is vulnerable, absolutely", he said. "That's what I'm sure the Australians are trying to do".

A 20-year-old Sussex left-arm bowler, George Garton, has been called into the England squad for their third and last warm-up match starting in Townsville on Wednesday - in the absence of anyone else who is fast and fit.
