ENG vs AUS 2nd Test Match Pitch Report
The pitch currently looks to be very green although we expect some of the grass to have been removed by the time of the toss on Wednesday morning. A par first innings total will be around 350.
What to expect:
England: Moeen Ali’s finger was the main injury worry to come out of the First Test at Edgbaston but the experienced all-rounder is expected to be fully fit to take his place in the team ahead of this Lord’s Test. Rehan Ahmed has been called up to the squad as cover should Moeen be ruled out.
For all the talk of England’s fine form since Ben Stokes took over the captaincy, they have now lost two of their last three Tests with only a win over Ireland to show from this period.
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 – Only Alastair Cook has scored more Test centuries than the former England skipper. Right-handed Root is the wicket that all Australian bowlers want to take.
- Ben Stokes – The skipper produced 43 in the second innings with the bat and picked up a wicket in both innings with the ball at Edgbaston. Fitness doubts over his knee seem to be incorrect ahead of this Second Test of Ashes 2023.
- Stuart Broad – The tall aggressive pace bowler took 3 wickets in both innings of the First Test including dismissing Marnus Labuschagne for a golden duck in the first innings.
Probable XI: Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Ben Stokes (c), Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Ollie Robinson, Jimmy 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: It will be very interesting to see which XI is selected by Australia’s team management for this Second Test with left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc expected to come back into the side. Scott Boland is expected to remain in the team with Josh Hazlewood the player most likely to make way.
Australia have won both of their Tests in England so far on this tour and you have to go back five Tests to find their last defeat in this format.
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
- Usman Khawaja – The experienced opener made scores of 141 and 65 at Edgbaston. Ahead of this Lord’s Test, his Test average is up to 48.10 from 109 innings.
- Pat Cummins – The skipper went wicketless and did not bowl a maiden in England’s first innings but he made up for it with 4 wickets in the second innings and seeing his team home with the bat. He will enjoy the conditions at Lord’s.
- Nathan Lyon – The off-spinner continues to cause England problems irrespective of the venue. He was even at the crease for the winning runs in Edgbaston which will have given him particular pleasure.
Probable XI: Usman Khawaja, David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Starc, 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

ENG vs AUS 2nd Test Match Prediction
The start of an Ashes series is always an exciting time for any cricket fan but particularly for those who support England or Australia. The last series in England ended 2-2 and Australia will fancy their chances of winning across the five-Test series this time. We are expecting a very close contest in Birmingham and are backing Australia to come out on top.

ENG vs AUS 2nd Test Match Dream11 Fantasy Team
Wicket-keepers: Jonny Bairstow
Batters: Ben Duckett, Joe Root, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne
All-rounders: Ben Stokes, Cameron Green, Moeen Ali
Bowlers: James Anderson, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins
ENG vs AUS Top Batsmen in The 2nd Test Match
We recommend Joe Root, Ben Duckett, and Jonny Bairstow with the bat for England. Bairstow’s wicket-keeping errors were highlighted at Edgbaston but he still produced 98 runs with the bat. Duckett will want to make an impact after hitting scores of 12 and 19 in the First Test.
Steve Smith, Travis Head, and Usman Khawaja are our batting tips for Australia. Smith dominated England’s bowlers in the 2019 Ashes and his wicket is still the one which England gets most excited about taking. The head comes into this Test after making a first-innings 50 at Edgbaston.
ENG vs AUS Top Bowlers in The 2nd Test Match
Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Ollie Robinson are our bowling choices for England. The surface and overhead conditions were never ideal for Anderson in Birmingham but they look likely to be a lot different in this Test. Broad comes into this Test with 588 wickets across his Test career.
We are backing Scott Boland, Pat Cummins, and Nathan Lyon with the ball for Australia. Boland saw England attack him in the First Test but he also produced a brilliant spell of bowling during the second innings when he was near-on unplayable. Lyon has taken at least 2 wickets in each of his last eight innings against England.
