In the 3rd 2019 Ashes, Test England will look to level the series as they missed out on the chance to do so in the 2nd test which saw Steve Smith hit by a fiery bouncer from Archer by which he suffered delayed concussion symptoms being hit on the neck. As a result in his absence in the 3rd Test, England will look to build some momentum and will look to rebound in Headingly, Leeds. Australia has won nine of the 24 Ashes Test matches played there, while England has emerged victorious in seven, Nevertheless, it promises to be another compelling and enthralling encounter.
While Marnus Labuschagne will look to replace Smith as he was impressive with the bat, Australia has a good armory of fast-bowling firepower with the likes of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Peter Siddle, and Mitchell Starc, as they look to win the Ashes for the first time in 18years. Apart from opener Rory Burns and Ben Stokes, England’s batting has been a cause of worry for both captain Joe Root and coach Trevor Bayliss. England has gone with an unchanged 12-man squad for the Headingley Test. Let’s look at the AUS vs ENG Dream11 team prediction, what could be an exciting series for both the nations.
