The Ashes 2021/2022 Third Test
England will have to make history by becoming only the second team in Ashes history to win a series from 2-0 down if they’re to return from Australia with the Ashes urn in January.
It’s been a sorry tour for Chris Silverwood and his side so far as the much maligned top order has failed to do the business down under and the hosts have managed to cruise to two victory from the opening two Tests.
The options for England to change things up aren’t too inspiring either. Zak Crawley and Dan Lawrence are waiting in the wings with the bat but neither of their Test records will give the Australian bowlers any sleepless nights as we head to the MCG for the Third test.
Josh Hazlewood will not be part of the Aussie seam attack once again due to injury. The hosts can at least welcome back captain Pat Cummins who was forced to miss the second test due to quarantine rules. Michael Neser looks set to keep his place over Jhye Richardson, with those two having come in to replace Hazlewood and Cummins.
England may look to bring Mark Wood back into the mix here and it remains to be seen whether they will select a frontline spinner for this Test after both Jack Leach and Dom Bess were left out last time around in Adelaide.
Joe Root’s hopes of bringing back the urn look to be all but dead in the water at this stage, but England have produced Boxing Day magic at the MCG in the not too distant past. Another morning like that in the 2010/2011 series, where they managed to bowl Australia out for just 98, may be just what’s required to kickstart their series?
