England `peaked` about two years ago, says author of English cricket`s review report
London: The England cricket team had gone past their peak about two years ago, said the author of the Ashes tourists` version of the Argus Report who reviewed their 5-0 loss to Australia in the 2006-07 Ashes.
Former executive director of golf`s European Tour , Ken Schofield wrote a report calling for a 19-step overhaul of English cricket policy after that defeat.
According to the BBC, Alastair Cook`s side is 4-0 down ahead of the final Ashes Test in Sydney and could fall to a second England whitewash in three visits, with Schofield saying that the team probably reached past their peak about two years ago.
However, Schofield does not believe a review such as his in 2006 is as pressing this time, pointing to the fact that Australia have recovered from last summer`s 3-0 defeat in England and saying that Cook`s side did not have enough time to recover from the last home Ashes series, which only finished in August.
