Australia will be renewing its rivalry against England in the first Test of Ashes 2021-22 at the Gabba in Brisbane. The match will commence on Wednesday, December 08 at 05:30 AM IST. Here are our AUS vs ENG Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
AUS vs ENG Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Can Australia continue their home dominance against England?
Australia suffered a humiliating loss at home against England in 2010-11. They lost the series 1-3. It led to many Australian players losing their spot in the side. But post that series, Australia hasn’t lost a game to England at home forget them being defeated. They trashed England 5-0 in 2013-14. Mitchell Johnson terrorised England with his gunslingers.
It softened up the England team who went on to lose the next series in Australia too. Steve Smith-led Australia defeated England 4-0 in 2017-18. Australia under a new captain, Pat Cummins will be keen to replicate their success this time around too. They will be eager to make it three in a row. Gabba is Australia’s fortress.
Australia would like to believe that the loss against India was an aberration. The Aussies will be pretty buoyant that the series will start in Brisbane helping them shed their dominance. They look outright favourites at this moment.
Can England trigger an upset at the Gabba?
England hasn’t won a Test match in Australia in the last 10 games. They have been thoroughly outplayed in the last 2 two tours down under. England have not held the urn since 2017.
They have welcomed the return of Ben Stokes, who has been their talisman for quite a while. England have left out James Anderson in a bid to manage his workload. But their main concern heading into the Test match is their top-order.
England’s top-order looked brittle in their home conditions so it is anyone’s guess in which shape they will be on an away tour. If England starts well it will surely ease their concerns a wee bit else it will again prove to be a really long tour down under.
