Fixtures:

 

1st Test - 1st Aug

2nd Test - 14th Aug

3rd Test - 22 Aug

4th Test - 4th Sep

5th Test - 12th Sep

 

Players to Watch out for England

1. Jason Roy (Had great worldcup but idk how good he will be in test matches)

2. Buttler (Had good series last year against India)

3. Sam Curran (real test starts for him now)

4. Anderson (injured right now so idk if he will be fully fit for whole series and this should be his last series as well)

 

Players to Watch out for Australia

1. Warner (Never good when it swings but will have to see how he plays this time specially after year long ban)

2. Smith (i doubt he is as good he was in past so wanna see how he does in test cricket)

3. Alex Carey (idk if he will play but i hope aus plays him)

4. Pat Cummins (should be really good in these conditions and he knows how to bat so should be sent bit up the order)

 

I hope this is exciting series and close contest for a true cricket fan. I am really bored and we don't have good series in recent time so hoping to get some entertaining and good cricket from ashes.

Aus was playing Aus A as practice match in England. Australia had main batsmen vs Australia A had main bowlers. 

 

I thought it was really good idea, ,maybe we can have similar practice matches as quality of sides given in those matches is just horrible.

This is the best England side. They got a lot of firepower to dethrone Australia.

Agreed but we should never under estimate Australia squad. When it is Ashes, they put their 200%. This is gonna be a fantastic series for viewers to watch

Good batsman. Needs to improve his bowling. Another Stokes type all-rounder or even better.

Looks like all three of the "Sandpaper Trio" could be playing in the first test, with Bancroft favoured to partner Warner at the top of the order, and Smith batting at four.

 

The Barmy Army are waiting...this is what is on the back of their official series polos and t-shirts:

Curran has no place in starting 11. Archer Wood Barbi Anderson stokes Ali are the 6 out of which 5 must/will play.

Aus looks better side on paper. I think they will smash the Poms in Engerland after long while

Not really in these conditions eng have really good bowlers but if they play in neutral venue then yes aus have better chance.

I have a different view, Aus will win this most likely

Woakes instead of Wood.

Thanks. Yes, Woakes. Also, For first time, Its English Team which looks better on Paper. I hope Anderson can still do magic spells. Would be lovely to watch it
