Ashes Test Series England vs Australia – Team England

Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes is England’s best all-rounder who has been named the vice-captain for the Ashes Test Series. Stokes missed the last Ashes test series which was held in Australia in 2017. He missed it due to his personal issues which cost England very badly. Stokes’ all-round skills are the key for the hosts if they want the urn back for themselves. He is a very good batsman and has had a good world cup, where he tried to win the match by himself. He is the perfect number 4 batsman for England who can rescue them if there is any need. Stokes is a guy who can play his natural game in any situation. That is why he is the player to watch out for in the Ashes test series.

Jofra Archer

Jofra Archer

It has been a wonderful year for Jofra Archer. After his world cup selection, he will now be making his Test debut for England. It will be a proud moment for Archer. But, this test will be a difficult test for him. Even though he will be the X-factor for England, he can’t take this opportunity lightly. Archer is a world-class bowler and we have seen him in the world cup. He has a good record for his domestic team Sussex too. Archer has picked up 131 wickets in just 54 games for them. With that, Archer has also picked up 39 wickets in just 7 of his last first-class games. This guy bowls around 145 kilometers per hour and can easily trouble any batsman in the world with his line and length. He is also a handy batsman, lower down the order. Jofra has 3 first-class fifties to his name. He had a good world cup where he was the leading wicket-taker for England. Let’s see if he can continue that performance in this all-important series too?

Joseph Edward Root

Joseph Edward Root

Root has many names in the England side. He is called the backbone of England’s batting, the middle order pillar for England, and the Modern-day great cricketing legend. Root holds the major responsibility for England in this test series. He should bat at number 3, no matter what the situation is. Root is the best number 3 batsman for England when the need arises. Root has scored 1538 runs from 23 matches and 40 innings with 2 centuries and 10 fifties playing at the number 3 position for England. He can handle pressure situations with ease, which is why he is called the middle order pillar of England. 

Jimmy Anderson 

Jimmy Anderson

James Anderson is a legend himself. He is the best test bowler for England who still serves the longest format of the game. Anderon will be ‘the man’ to watch out for in this Ashes test series. He holds the key for England in the bowling department.

Due to his amazing performance in his debut series, he won the man of the series award. His batting skills have been too good for England. He has rescued England many times from peculiar positions and that is why he has become the emerging all-rounder today.

Steve Smith

Steve Smith

The former skipper, Steve Smith will be eager to play the longest format against their arch-rivals, England. Smith had an ordinary world cup when it is compared to his standards. Now, when it comes to playing test cricket, he would want to be the best.  Smith will aim for an excellent comeback to test cricket. He is the backbone of Australia’s batting and while he was banned, the Aussies struggled to maintain that run, that’s why they lost the home series against India earlier this year. Now Australia has sorted the middle-order woes and they would want to make a strong comeback in the longest format of the game. Smith played well in the 2015 series which Australia lost. But he can take some inspiration from that series. That will do him a world of good.

Cameron Bancroft 

Cameron Bancroft

Australia has covered all the bases in this Ashes series. Aaron Finch was dropped. The ODI skipper, Finch struggled in the last test series. That’s why Cameron Bancroft has replaced Finch in the Ashes test series. Bancroft was a forced inclusion in the side. Cameron was good in the warm-up games and will be expected to do well in this 5 matches Ashes series. Bancroft will also aim for a good test return after what happened in South Africa. He will have to play well to cement his spot in the test side. He will open alongside David Warner who also will make a comeback in the Test arena.

David Warner 

David Warner

Destructive Warner had a good comeback in international cricket. He was the highest run-scorer for the Aussies in the world cup. Now, he will want to make an impact in the Ashes test series. He is a dangerous batsman who will surely entertain the crowd. He will be ‘the player’ to watch out for in this Ashes test series.

Tim Paine 

Tim Paine

The skipper will have to deliver with the bat. Against India, he failed to do so and that’s why Australia couldn’t put up a fight in that home series. Now with the trio of Smith, Warner, and Bancroft being back, Paine will be in a lesser pain because of these 3. And, with Wade lowering down the order, it will make things a little easier for the skipper, Tim Paine. But he will have a job on his hands, as Australia is in search of their first test series win on England soil after 2001. 

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc

Starc was the star for Australia in the world cup tournament. He was the leading wicket-takers with the white ball and now he will be eager to make an impact with the red cherry too. Starc will do some early damage in England’s conditions. He will swing the ball both ways which might cause trouble for the England batsmen. Also, not to forget his contribution with the bat in the lower order too. Starc can hit some lusty blows and play some long innings too if needed. Starc will play the Ashes test series as an all-rounder because he can contribute with both the skills.
