I think a big factor in this particular loss was Anderson's injury, and I don't think anyone is really to blame for that, shit happens. Some players could have performed better and I'm not convinced about Root's captaincy (he got the job as the only realistic option and that's pretty much still the case, ideally someone else would be captain and this would allow Root to focus solely on his batting - it's been suggested before, but it's not totally wacko to bring in Morgan as captain). But overall I think that's a fair argument - see post #263 in this thread.
