England face Australia this summer in what is set to be an exciting Ashes series of Cricket. Previous Ashes series in England will show that we’re likely to see many close finishes, some outstanding batting and period of top bowling from the world’s finest fast and spin bowlers.
The home side warmed up with a comfortable win over Ireland and with the new approach to test Cricket under Brendon McCullum, England will look to attack from the off, but will have to show some patience in their approach as the experience of Australia will be a big threat.
Australia hold the ashes as know only a defeat will mean the Ashes trophy heads to England, but with an aging blowing attack, England may struggle to bowl out Australia twice to secure enough test wins in this series
Stuart Broad, Matthew Potts and Josh Tongue were the key bowlers in the win over Ireland, but Australia are a different animal in the quality of batting they will face. Jimmy Anderson will add huge experience and know how, plus the returning Moen Ali will add experience.
Marnus Labuschagne is the world’s top batsman and likely to cause England their biggest headache this summer. He is in great form and capable of big innings. David Warner has a lot to offer as opening batsman and you can’t write off Steve smith from putting up a big total. Travis Head hit a century v India and warmed up perfectly to face England this Summer.
The English batting line up of Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope and Joe Root, along with Ben Stokes are absolutely vital to the chances of England regaining the Ashes this summer and one of them must at least make a hundred in each test match to give England a chance to put up a big first innings total, to give the bowling attack a chance
The Aussie bowling attack of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon are the main weapons England will face and with Cameon Green and Scott Boland looking to make an impact this summer, England will need to get the better of this attack to give them a chance.
The English summer is set to be a good one, so we’re looking forward to 5 test matches, great cricket and big momentum swings along the way.
|Draw||6/1 William Hill|
With Australia having the better batting line up and players in top form, they are coming into this in a good frame of mind. Having beaten India in the Test Series final will give them huge confidence as they face England.
The experience of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith can cause England big problems so they must stamp their authority and put pressure on the Aussie batsman early. With England’s new tactic in test cricket, this may have some advantage, but our punters.pub best bet is Australia to win the Ashes Series this summer at Evs with Coral.
Our 2nd best best for the Ashes Series is 2/1 with Paddy Power for Marnus Labuschagne to be the top Australian Batsman in the Series. Marnus Labuschagne is playing great cricket and with growing experience at test level, he can be the main man to lead Australia to victory.
