Speaking about England's problems former captain Nasser Hussain explained the reasons. He pointed out the main weakness in England's batting. 

"Let's not get lost with the Broad issue or the toss issue. England having batted first were bowled out for 204 - that is still their nemesis. They did well in South Africa, but in England, against the Dukes ball, they often find themselves 20-3, 30-3 and without Root in the side this week that was a nightmare. That is still the issue for England," Hussain was quoted as saying Sky Sports.

He further added that England want to perform like as they did well in South Africa & New Zealand.

"They are going to a good surface at Old Trafford. Root is back and they have to bat like they did in South Africa this winter and at points in New Zealand. Not by 204 all out. Sometimes as a captain you have to say 'I back my side to get 300 on this' but England fluffed their lines again with the bat after winning toss," he said.

Hussain also congratulated West Indies for their deserving victory against England in the first Test in Southampton.

"It's great for West Indies on so many different levels. They deserve it for coming over to England and doing what they have had to - quarantine at Emirates Old Trafford and then come to Ageas Bowl and be in a bubble."

"Winning like that was absolutely phenomenal and that's why it was an important win. Imagine doing all that then losing after bossing this game. They would have driven up to Manchester thinking 'we have done all the right things and we are 1-0 down'." Hussain added.
