Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath has demanded that the current side's top order batsmen take responsibility for their poor performance against England in the second Ashes Test.
The Aussies currently trail the series 2-0 and were hammered during a 347-run loss, as they were bowled out for 235 in their second innings on day four of the second match.
"The top order need to start scoring some hundreds. They have spent enough time there," McGrath told BBC Sport. "They have to stand up now and put some big scores on the board.
"The fact that Mike Hussey was in the team through the Australian summer probably overshadowed the issues we have and provided a safety net. That safety net is no longer there so the players now have to stand up.
"The batsmen have a lot to think about over the next week or so before the next Test match and get a few things right. They need to put a bit more of a higher price on their wicket and spend time at the crease. If you spend time out there you will score runs."
Australia face England in the third Test of the Ashes at Old Trafford on August 1.
