While the first two Tests in the ongoing Ashes made many believe that Australia are the better-possessed unit, the third has not only brought the series back on equal footing but shifted the momentum towards England. Both the teams would be raring to win the fourth one, starting on Wednesday, and take an unassailable lead at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.Get Premier league odds
The visitors had missed the service of their star batsman Steve Smith, who had single-handedly won the first Test for his team at Edgbaston.
With only one wicket in hand, Ben Stokes displayed a monstrous effort to snatch the victory from the jaw of the touring team and bring the hosts level with them in the ongoing Ashes. After two disappointing results, the Joe Root-led side staged an extraordinary comeback and would be looking to capitalize on the momentum they have received.
- England has named a 13-man squad for this upcoming fourth Ashes test match. Somerset pace bowler Craig Overton has been picked in the team, replacing James Anderson who has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament.Get Cricket Betting Tips here
- All-rounder Sam Curran may have to look at the proceedings from the sidelines once again.
- There remain issues with the batting line-up however so they will make a change to the batting order here with Joe Denly moving up to open the innings with Rory Burns which will see Jason Roy move down to number four in the hope that Roy can find some form once the shine has been taken off the new ball.
- Australia were shell shocked after they somehow managed to lose the third Test after being in control of it for long spells especially after they bowled England out for 67 in the first innings, and then subsequently failing to take several chances to seal the game before Ben Stokes guided England to an unlikely victory.
- They have used the gap in between Headingley and Old Trafford to play a warm-up match against Derbyshire which was used to give playing time to the other members of their squad, while the likes of Harris, Khawaja and Smith were given the opportunity to spend some much-needed time at the crease.
- Marcus Harris was one player to take advantage of that match with his fifty and one would expect him to get another chance in this Test, which means Usman Khawaja makes way for returning star man Steve Smith, while the Aussies will have to decide whether to bring Starc or Siddle into the side in place of James Pattinson who is rested for this game.

- Rory Burns: He is one of the leading run-getters of the Ashes 2019 having scored 242 runs at an average of 40.33. The left-handed opener has hit a century and a half-century in the series. Burns failed to make much impact in the last match and he will look to make amends at Manchester.
- Ben Stokes: He is an absolute key figure in England’s line-up regardless of the format. The ace all-rounder has scored the most runs for the team this Ashes – 327 runs at an amazing average of 81.75 – in addition to picking up eight wickets. Stokes played a gem of a knock last time and the hosts will want him to continue his excellent form.
- Jofra Archer: He has been in a menacing form lately and is definitely the biggest threat in this English bowling attack. The pacer has notched up 13 wickets in just two games. He claimed eight scalps in the previous test, six of which were picked in the first innings itself.
- Steven Smith: Despite having been forced out of the third match due to injury, Steve Smith continues to remain at the top of the runs charts with 378 runs in just three innings. The former captain has cracked a couple of hundreds and a fifty already in the series. The world no. 2 test batsman will be raring to go out in the middle and score big again.
- Pat Cummins: The fast bowler is one of the danger men with the ball in this Australian bowling unit and he will be backed by his skipper to provide the early breakthroughs with the new ball. The world’s top-ranked test bowler is leading the Ashes 2019 wickets charts with 17 wickets.
- Nathan Lyon: The off-spinner has been amongst the wickets in the series – 14 wickets which includes a fifer that he claimed in the first test at Birmingham. Lyon could not cause much problems for the English batsmen last time out but he is likely to play a huge role at the Old Trafford, especially in the latter-half of the match.
Remember the Last Time
The Headingley epic was all about Ben Stokes’ remarkable 135* and his last-wicket stand of 76, with Jack Leach contributing 1*, that helped England chase a target of 359 to level the series. This after they were bundled out for 67 in the first innings, in response to Australia’s 179. While Jofra Archer picked up his maiden five-wicket haul, Hazlewood responded with five himself.
