Match Preview

The stage is set for the third instalment of the 2019 Ashes at Headingley on Thursday. The Australian’s currently lead the series 1-0, but after an encouraging performance last week, England will be convinced that they can bounce back with a win in Leeds.

The second Ashes Test at Lord’s may have ended in a draw but the match was anything but dull, and without rain on the final morning there would surely have been a result.

The introduction of fast bowler Jofra Archer has had a huge impact on the series, and appears to have shifted the momentum in Englands favour. Suddenly the absence of James Anderson seems less significant, and it is the tourists with questions to answer.

It was confirmed on Tuesday that Australian talisman Steve Smith has been ruled out of the Headingley Test after the horrific blow he took from England paceman Archer.In his return to Test cricket Smith has scored 142, 144 and 92 in three innings against England. However, Australia head coach Justin Langer confirmed the batsman will miss the clash in Leeds.Get Premier league odds

Team News


  • England picked up something of a moral victory in the second Test as although the match ended as a draw, they had Australia on the ropes in the final day and they will look to carry some of that momentum into this third Test at Headingley as they look to level the series.
  • They have named an unchanged 12-man squad for this match with Sam Curran joining the 11 that played at Lord’s but there is every chance they will go with the same players here. They may contemplate a change in batting order however with Joe Denly moving up to partner Rory Burns at the top of the order, and move the struggling Jason Roy to number three, and skipper Joe Root back to his preferred spot of number four.
  • Jofra Archer stole the limelight following his impressive Test debut at Lord’s and England will look to him to be the x-factor once again at Headingley as he rattled so many of the Australian batsmen in the second Test and was a constant menace. Get Cricket Betting Tips here


  • Australia come into this third Test with a 1-0 lead and they will not be too disheartened from the second Test despite being on the back foot on the final day and scraping a draw, but they will have to do without skipper Steve Smith who has been ruled out of this match after the blow he took to the neck so Marnus Labuschagne will deputise for him in what is a massive blow to the tourists.
  • The impact of Jofra Archer in that Lord’s match was significant and it will be interesting to see how the Australian batsmen deal with him once again at Headingley especially with their opening batsmen Warner and Bancroft in below-par form so there is a chance Marcus Harris could come in at the top of the order.
  • Conditions will likely suit Peter Siddle at Headingley and he bowled well at Lord’s although there is a chance that James Pattinson could return to the side here after he was rested in the second Test, and Australia may be tempted to bring their fastest bowler back into the side to give England a taste of their own medicine.
Pitch Report : Headingley Stadium - Leeds, England
A balanced Headingley wicket can benefit both batsmen and bowlers, with the overhead conditions usually a bigger factor. On a warm, sunny week as has been forecast, it could be something for the batsmen – but the pitch is unlikely to change dramatically over the five days.
Weather: The forecast for Leeds is vastly better than that which beset the second test at Lord’s. Temperatures should be in the 20s, with Friday and Saturday particularly good according to the forecast. The chance of rain is low.

Key battles

David Warner is yet to score in double digits, and that is not even the worry. Of the four times he has been dismissed, Stuart Broad has claimed his wicket thrice. The incoming delivery especially has been trapping Warner in two minds. In the second innings at Lord’s, he launched an attack right away but that too did not put him out of the misery. To make matters interesting, Broad knows the nook and cranny of Headingley, having sniped up 42 wickets.

Jofra Archer did not take time to make headlines in Test cricket. He rattled the second-best batsman in the world with pace and bounce. The blow on Steven Smith’s neck was so threatening that he had to retire hurt and is doubtful for the upcoming third Test.

Pat Cummins has dismissed Rory Burn twice. It is the length area that has been keeping the in-form Burns on the backfoot. But if anything’s pitched on his legs, he makes sure he flicks it into the gap for a boundary.

Ben Stokes has no one to fear but himself. It his shot selection that has been letting England down. He corrected that in the second innings at Lord’s, and the outcome was a spectacular hundred at a crucial juncture.

What is each team’s record?

Almost level, but not quite. Out of the 70 Test series so far, Australia have won 33 and England 32, with five draws.

There is a slightly wider margin when it comes to Tests, however. Out of 331 that have been played, Australia have won 135 to England’s 106, with 90 draws.Ind vs WI 1st Test Preview
