England Cricket Team - ECB

Match Preview

It will be ENG vs AUS for the 3rd Test match of the Ashes tomorrow at Leeds.

Talking about the 2nd Test, then Australia once again dominated England and won the game by 43 runs.

Therefore, they are now leading the 5-match series 2-0 and will look to seal the series by winning the 3rd Test as well.

Meanwhile, England will have to start thinking long and hard about how to decimate Australia in the 3rd Test.

Their Bazball tactics are not working at home and it is giving them great suffering as well as they have lost two Tests in a row.

On the other hand, Australia are riding pretty high on confidence ever since winning the World Test Championship.

Thus, this will be an interesting game between these two sides starting tomorrow.

Match Details

Match: England vs Australia, 3rd Test

Venue: Headingley Carnegie, Leeds

Date: 6-10th July 2023

Pitch Report

The wicket at Headingley is a balanced track for both batters and bowlers when it comes to Test cricket. Moreover, the pacers will get some assistance as the ball moves in a lateral position. Furthermore, as the game will progress, spinners will be much more effective. Thus, posting a huge total in the first innings should be the way forward in this Test.
