LONDON: After losing the first match of the Ashes, the hosts will take on the hosts today. The team will definitely want to be in the second Test at Lord's. In England, Australia, who were all out for 18 years in the Ashes series, scored 251 runs in the first Test at Ezekiel in the first Test against Smith. Smith, who returned after a 12-month ban due to ball-tampering, scored a century in both innings. England have won the series only twice after losing the first Ashes Test.
For the first time in 1981, Ian Batham gave the team a victory with a brilliant performance, while for the second time in 2005, England won 2-1. England's most successful Test bowler James Anderson was able to bowl just four overs due to a shin injury during his defeat at Edgbaston and he also crashed out of the second Test at Lord's. In the absence of Anderson, England have prepared for Archer's Test performance.
Archer claimed the title of The World Cup final last month by throwing a brilliant super over to England. England will take on left-handed spinner Jack Leach who scored a career-best 92 runs in the only Test against Ireland at Lord's last month. Off-spinner Moeen Ali has been dropped from the squad after a lackluster performance at Ejston. Left-handed spinners are the weak side of Smith against whom his average is 34.90 while his total average is close to 63. England will want to make a quick comeback to Australia's star batsman Steve Smith with the help of fast bowler Jofra Archer.
