Batsman George Bailey has rubbed salt to England's wounds by saying that the Australian side was proud of forcing three of England's players to return home.


Jonathan Trott (stress), Graeme Swann (retired) and Finn (technical issues) have all left England's dire tour.

Nearly eight weeks have passed since Australia and England clashed in the first Test and England has not won a match apart from a meaningless victory over a Prime ­Minister's XI this week.

Bailey said Australia wore it as a badge of honour that so many England players had headed home.

He further pointed that Asutralian players are making life uncomfortable for Enland, whether that's through form or fitness.
