AUS vs ENG Dream11 Prediction 3rd Test Australia vs England Playing 11, Stats, Pitch Report, Live Score

By Sonam G

AUS vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the 3rd Test between Australia and England in The Ashes 2021-22. It’s the Boxing day Test at the iconic MCG and the hosts who are currently leading the series 2-0 will look to clinch the Ashes. The series is still alive, but only just with England making four changes as they look to hit back, and although it looks a slightly more balanced team this time around they will be up against a team that has been ruthless at home and have shown no signs of mercy so far. This is a very crucial match in the context of the series and Australia once again will start as favorites.

Pitch Report

The MCG surface has been through a facelift since the last Ashes and everything points to a pitch that should offer something for everyone. There was a decent covering of grass two days out although some of that may be trimmed off. In recent seasons bounce and carry has also returned. The weather is set fair through with temperatures ranging from the low teens to mid-20s so heat should not be a factor.
