Editor's Pick (Test): England - Australia

Refer to our previous blog http://blog.fantain.com/2017/11/blog-time-ashes-to-ashes.html to know more about the tournament. We are now gonna talk about who we would like on our fantasy team of the lineup.


The two teams - England and Australia - have made quite a name for themselves in the world of cricket. All this does not matter when they face each other. The rivalry that they have between themselves is almost special.


Teams:
England (From): Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Joe Root(c), Dawid Malan, Gary Ballance, Jonny Bairstow(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Mason Crane, Ben Foakes, Jake Ball, Craig Overton, Tom Curran
Australia (From): Cameron Bancroft, David Warner, Steven Smith(c), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine(w), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird, Chadd Sayers


England won in 2015 with the scores 3-2 in their favour. Australia have a factor in their favour. The matches take place in hometown. The Gabba, Brisbane. This is one of the most popular and best wickets in Australia, giving room to bounce and pace. There has been a little bit of rain, a few showers and unseasonably cool. It is supposed to be summer in Australia now. England is used to this kind of weather. Unpredictable in nature.


News
England : They need their fourth seamer. They currently have Broad, Woakes and Anderson. It is a toss up between Jake Ball and Craig Overton. Gary Ballance might lose his spot to Dawid Malan and James Vince.
Australia: They are short of an all-rounder, they seem to be satisfied with two spinners – Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith to give the other two bowlers – Starc, Cummins, Hazle wood – company. The batting order seems to be set – Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja and Smith. Marsh will provide support down the order. With Warner now it, Maxwell might be out.
Glen McGrath believes that the bowling can define the path of the winner. This Australian paceman believes the Aussies could win hands down if their bowlers make it through. “It’s always up to the batsmen. Bowlers will win matches as long as the batsmen score enough runs. That’s coming from a bowler.”
The lack of Ben Stokes will make a difference to the team.
