ABOUT THE MATCH
The match is going to be played between England and Australia at Edgbaston, Birmingham on 1st of August 2019.
England has pleased with how its team stood up under pressure in the world cup.
This may be a good toss to lose. The previous record suggests that batting first is the right way, but the overhead conditions may favor bowling. We think batting first in a pressure situation might be preferable to the captain that wins the toss.

Top Order and Middle Order Analysis:
Top bowlers Analysis:
- 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.

|David Warner||Steven Smith||Pat Cummins|
|Marcus Harris||Tim Paine (c/wk)||Nathan Lyon|
|Usman Khawaja||Mitchell Marsh||Mitchell Starc|
- 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.
|Top 3 batsman England||Top 3 Middle Order England||Top 3 Bowler England|

|Rory Burns||Jonny Bairstow (wk)||Stuart Broad|
|Joe Denly||Moeen Ali||James Anderson|
PROBABLE WINNING TEAM:
The weather in England will obviously have an impact, but given both teams’ batting woes, results still seem likely. Australia last won an Ashes series in England in 2001, but this is a fine opportunity to end that drought. The hosts’ World Cup win took plenty out of them, and signs of fatigue are sure to be present during the series, giving Australia’sbowlers in particular something to take advantage of. With Warner and Smith having a point to prove in the Test arena after their bans and plenty of depth in the bowling attack, Australia has what it needs to get the job done. There will surely be little between the teams so if the tourist’s stars can step up in the right moments, the urn is likely to go to Australia at the Edgbaston
