Australia have retained The Ashes after a 185-run victory over England in the fourth Test at Old Trafford. They may have Retained the Ashes in England after 18 years, but the series is not yet over. The urn isn’t the only thing they are playing for. If they lose the final Test, the series will end 2-2. This means that they will have as many points as England in the Test Championship table. England are well aware of the fact, and will give their all to end the gruel ling series on a high.
The win in Manchester means Australia are now 2-1 ahead in the series and will keep hold of the urn even if they lose the fifth and final Test starting on 12 September at The Oval in London.
- Wicketkeeper Ben Foakes, whose name has returned to the fore given Jonny Bairstow’s modest series with the bat, is another who might have been discussed. Any combination of those four players might yet be seen on the winter tour to New Zealand, but any serious surgery to the squad has been delayed.
- Question marks remain over the fitness of Ben Stokes. He injured his right shoulder over the weekend and did not bowl in Australia’s second innings. England are due to assess him over the next 48 hours but his batting, which brought a century at Lord’s and a contender for best Test innings at Headingley, will guarantee his role as a specialist in the top five.
- Selectors might consider drafting in Woakes or Curran as an all-rounder with a batsman forced to make way.
- Jason Roy is an obvious candidate given his issues, but it might also be possible to switch the gloves around and retain Jos Buttler at Bairstow’s expense.
- Australia bounced back from the stunning Headingley defeat to beat England at Old Trafford and retain the Ashes, and they will now want to put a seal on the series and earn more points in the Test Championship with a win at The Oval.
- They have made changes in every Test so far and rotating the bowling attack seems to be a given for them so it would be no surprise to see James Pattinson or possibly Peter Siddle come back into the side for either Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazelwood.
- The opening partnership with the bat continues to be a major issue for the Australians as David Warner’s struggles continue while Marcus Harris has yet to settle into the role so it would be no surprise if further changes were made with either Usman Khawaja or Cameron Bancroft potentially coming back into the side.
