The Ashes series is currently being played in Australia between Australia and England. With three tests remaining, Australia leads the five-match series 2-0. Australia, who were considered favorites prior to the start of the series, has looked strong. In contrast, England has performed dreadfully in both test matches. The English team has received a lot of criticism from former cricketers and sports analysts as a result of their poor performance.
Apart from Joe Root and David Malan, the English batters have been poor throughout the series. It has sparked a lot of criticism among cricket fans and experts in England. Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen wrote on his twitter account,”Can I just say, that to beat Australia, you have to be aggressive, play without fear & not stand down in any situation. In ‘05 we were told to go out and smack the bowlers. I’m hearing ENG players are talking about not leaving the ball well enough”. On the other hand, fans started to share their own views as well in reply.
England is behind the Ashes series 2-0. The third test match will take place on December 27th at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne. The England team is set to undergo some changes, particularly in the batting order. And it will be intriguing to see how Joe Root and his squad regroup before facing the strong Australians who are on a run. The Australian squad would love to win the next game and grab an unassailable series lead. Pat Cummins, the regular captain, is expected to be available for the next test match.
