ENG vs AUS Dream11 Prediction in EnglishEngland announced their playing XI for the third Ashes Test match against Australia a day before the start of the match. The team led by Ben Stokes has made three changes. Veteran fast bowler James Anderson has been dropped from the playing 11. Trailing 2-0, England will have to win the third Test to be played at the Leeds Stadium in Headingley from July 6 to stay alive in the five-match series. Australia’s team is also set to change. Nathan Lyon has been ruled out of the series due to injury.
England said in a statement released on Wednesday regarding the change in the playing 11 that apart from Anderson, fast bowler Josh Tongue has also been rested. Mark Wood and Chris Woakes have got a chance. Apart from this, all-rounder Moeen Ali has also returned. He played in the first match after retiring from Test cricket. His finger was injured. He will be seen playing again in the third test.
Moeen Ali replaces Olly Pop
Oli Pop was ruled out of the series after injuring his shoulder at Lord’s. Moeen Ali has been included in the playing 11 in his place. Harry Brook has now been promoted to take Pope’s spot at number 3. Anderson is the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket with 688 wickets, but the veteran bowler has struggled in the series. He has taken only three wickets.
Australia needs to make a change
Josh Tongue made his Test debut against Ireland last month. He impressed with a five-wicket haul in the second innings and played his first Test of the Ashes series at Lord’s. He took five wickets in two innings. Talking about Australia, the team would not like to tamper with the winning combination. However, he is forced to make a change. Nathan Lyon got injured after playing 100 consecutive Tests. Todd Murphy will replace him in the playing 11. Murphy made his debut on the tour of India and performed brilliantly.
