ENG vs AUS Pitch Report
The average score batting first at Edgbaston is 310. The highest team score at the venue is 710-7 (Dec.) by England in 2011 versus India. The team batting first in this Test will be looking to post a total in the range of 400 runs. Interestingly, 15 matches have been drawn at Edgbaston out of the 54 Tests played. The touring sides have won only 10 matches here.
It looks set to be a good batting wicket in Birmingham. Although there will be spin throughout the game, we do not expect the pitch to deteriorate a great deal across the five days.
The forecast is for the opening two days of the Test to be played out in warm and sunny conditions with rain and cloud expected across Days 3, 4, and 5.
What to expect:
England: England is playing more competitive and confident cricket after more than 12 months led by Ben Stokes and Brendan McCullum. Including all-round Moeen Ali who last played Test Cricket in 2021, the Ashes have set their 11 for this match in 2023.
England has won 11 of their last 13 Tests, losing just two against South Africa and New Zealand since Brendon McCallum took over as coach. Remarkably, the loss to New Zealand was a narrow defeat.
Playing for England in the first Test, England will hope that “Fortress Edgbaston” will work well, although its historical strength has been weakened by defeats against New Zealand in 2021 and Australia in 2019.
He asked the circle to adapt to their quick scoring, popularly called “Baseball” in honor of their current manager by fans and observers. If that happens, England’s hit will be one to watch.
First battering Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope’s performance in 3 was crucial to the team’s success.
Harry Brook is a hit to behold. The young midfielder has taken the world by storm, averaging 81.80 and a batting average of 99.03 in 818 Runs in 11 Test matches.
James Anderson (34 wickets in the last 8 games) and Stuart Broad (33 wickets in the last 7 games) have proven their prowess at home against Australia and these two will be the biggest problems created for the guests.
Likewise, Ollie Robinson is expected to continue his success and reaffirm his international reputation.
ENG Key Players
- Joe Root – The former skipper has hit over 11000 Test runs including 29 centuries. He is England’s most experienced batter and will be fully motivated to win this game.
- Ben Stokes – The captain has turned around the fortunes of his side and ushered in a new entertaining style of cricket. He will be required to bowl plenty of overs and his aggressive batting could be crucial.
- Jimmy Anderson – The experienced right-arm swing bowler has just come back from a slight groin injury but is expected to be fully fit for this opening game of the series.
Probable XI: Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Moeen Ali, Ollie Robinson, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
England Squad: Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes(c), Jonny Bairstow(w), Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson, Daniel Lawrence, Josh Tongue, Matthew Potts, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes
Australia: Australia couldn’t have hoped to break into the Ashes any better than this. They had just won the World Test Championship final against India at the Oval and were confident. Moreover, they are now well aware of these conditions.
Australia is known to have a baseball team. Although David Warner has been in bad form lately, he has the ability to pick himself up at any moment.
Usman Khawaja has dominated Australia for the past two years despite his poor performance in the World Test Championship (WTC) final. Second, most runners in the 2021-2023 WTC cycle, collecting 1,621 runs over 30 innings, an average of about 65. WTC scored a good century.
Needless to say, he will be the top hitter to watch in this Test. Meanwhile, Smith currently has 1882 runs in just 32 innings for England, which is an average of 60 runs, 7 hundred and 7 fifty.
Marnus Labuschagne (922 in 10 games, 65.85 average) is another player worth betting. Travis Head is comparable to Australia’s “Baseball” and has 163 Runs to beat India in the WTC final.
In British conditions, Australian seafarers will be much more than a minority. Scott Boland’s spectacular performance in the WTC final made it difficult for him to earn the starting line. Captain Pat Cummins is sure to play, but with Josh Hazlewood’s return, Mitchell Starc’s place may be questioned.
The left-arm accelerator struggled to manage runs in both matches against India and will be penalized if he can’t find his rhythm against England’s strong-hitting lineup.
AUS Key Players
- Steve Smith – The former Australian captain hit a century during the World Test Championship Final and is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Test batters of all time.
- Pat Cummins – The captain took over the leadership of the team just ahead of the 2021-22 Ashes Series and he has a brilliant Test record in England.
- Scott Boland – The 34-year-old has played in only eight Tests but has already picked up 33 wickets. He took 2-59 and 3-46 at The Oval against India last week.
Probable XI: Usman Khawaja, David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins (c), Josh Hazlewood, Scott Boland, Nathan Lyon
Australia Squad: David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey(w), Pat Cummins(c), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Scott Boland, Todd Murphy, Josh Inglis, Matt Renshaw, Marcus Harris
