PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Australia vs England Ashes Match-2 is going to be played at Lords’s, London. Temperatures as high as 22-29c expected for the duration but rain could hit throughout the test.
- Australia will be confident of retaining the Ashes as they head to England but will have to overcome recent history after failing to win an Ashes series away from home since a 4-1 triumph back in 2001
- Australia is very vulnerable, as they lose their openers very quickly and that is what it must guard against.
- The bowling department of Australia is in good form.
- And is in great form and confidence after winning the 1st Ashes test.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF AUSTRALIA
David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja, Matthew Wade, Travis Head, Tim Paine (C & WK), James Pattinson, Pat Cummins, Peter Siddle/Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon
- England will hope they can build on their ODI side’s World Cup success over the summer and use that experience to their advantage as many of that side now feature in the squad for the longer format of Ashes series
- The home side’s warm-up game against Ireland will leave a lot of questions regarding not only the make-up of the team but the strength of the batting line-up after they were bowled out for just 88 in their first innings.
- And the top order line-up remains a mystery with Jason Roy set to be included as an opener or a No.3 batsman.
- England will miss Anderson because of his injury and they need to work on their loopholes in order to win this test.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF ENGLAND
Rory Burns, Jason Roy, Joe Root (C), Jonny Barstow (WK), Jos Butler, Ben Stokes, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad
