Australia leads the five Match Ashes Test series by a 3-0

Australia is a very hard team to beat, especially at home. India and South Africa are the only teams who have won a Test series Down Under. India has won the Test series twice in 2019 and 2021, while The Proteas under Faf Du Plessis has won one time. But the visitors, England, had no answers to Australia’s dominance in all three departments. Joe Root and his men are yet to compete against this Australian side. 

This Ashes Test Series has been rocked due to the Corona Virus threat. Still, the series has been going on for the sake of the cricket-loving fans. Despite that, Australia has used their home advantage very well, and they have not allowed England to compete in this series so far. The batting display of England has been in disarray. They still have the poorest top order, and the middle order is yet to fire for the tourists.

England needs runs from their top three, and it won’t be a bad idea if Joe Root bats at number three in this Test match at SCG. The England skipper has scored three fifties in the first three Test matches and his quest for scoring a century in Australia is still on. Joe should get the three-figure mark at Sydney Cricket Ground if England sees a consolation win. England needs to bring back Daniel Lawrence and Dominic Bess. Lawerence can bat at number four, and Bess can stretch the batting card for the visitors.

England also needs a change in their top order. Crawley was again disappointing, and Hameed hasn’t responded well to his captain’s call. Ollie Pope can bat as the opener for the fourth Test match and Rory Burns. But still,l the other need to contribute. Ben Stokes, Johnny Bairstow, and Jos Buttler are big names in international cricket. They are yet to showcase their worth in Australia.

England will want Ben Sttoes to fire after his international return. Stokes took a mental health break from all cricketing activities, and so he also missed the home series against India and World T20 in the United Arab Emirates. Despite the bowlers doing a great job at Melbourne Cricket Ground, the visiting side lost the match because of their batting failures. James Anderson and Mark Wood were the picks of the bowlers in the Boxing Day Test match. England can also add Craig Overton, who can also add depth in batting.

On the other hand, the Aussies have aimed a five-nil whitewash against England, and one can say that they are surely on the march for achieving that feat. Australia has dominated the Test series from day one at Adelaide. It started from Cummins’s five-wicket haul, and it has ended with a six-wicket haul by the debutant Scoot Boland. Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner, and Steve Smith chipped in with important contributions with the bat. The collective and all-around performance from the home team has allowed them to win the series by a margin of 3-0, and still, two matches are remaining in the Ashes Test series 2021/2022.

Playing XI of Australia

David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Alex Carey (WK), Cameron Green, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (C), Josh Hazlewood, and Nathan Lyon.

Playing XI of England

Ollie Pope, Rory Burns/Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Daniel Lawerence, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Craig Overton, Ollie Robison/Mark Wood, Dominic Bess, and James Anderson.

Pitch Report – Australia Vs England 4th Test Match Predictions

The SCG surface is batting friendly one, and the batters can play their strokes. But the surface will turn, and the spin bowlers can be useful on days four and five of this Test match.

Fantasy batters of Australia Vs England 4th Test Match Predictions

David Warner – The explosive opening batsman from the Aussie team has been good since the T20 World Cup 2021 is over. Warner was the man of the tournament in the UAE, and he has continued his form in the Ashes Test series. Dashing Warner has given Australia some flying starts. But he is yet to reach his three-figure mark. Now that Australia has won this year’s Ashes Series, David Warner can ease off the pressure and bat to score his hundred at SCG ground. Warner should aim to start 2022 with a bang.

Ben Stokes – It was good to see talismanic all-rounder back on the field. Ben Stokes has been a player who won England a game at Headingley single-handedly when Australia toured England in 2019. That series was drawn mainly because of Stokes’s brilliance. But in this series, Stokes hasn’t fired all guns blazing. He has bowled decently so far. He needs to produce the innings like South Africa and the Headingley Test match. The SCG pitch supports strokeplay, and Stokes can make use of that.

Fantasy Bowlers of Australia Vs England 4th Test Match Predictions

James Anderson – The legendary pace bowler from England is still doing the finest job for his team. Jimmy has proved that age is just a number, and he has been accurate and consistent till now. It is amazing to see Anderson so fit and firing despite the age, and he plays just Test cricket for England. At MCG, Anderson bowled extremely well. If he continues to do so, he could allow England to win the consolation Test match at Sydney Cricket ground. He still needs to bowl unplayable lines and lengths to the in-form batters of the Australian team to achieve more success Down Under.

Nathan Lyon is the only spin bowler who has made an impact in this Test series so far. Nathan Lyon has been Australia’s trump card in home conditions. But his performance on the away tours is yet to be seen. In Australian cricket, Lyon is the second-best spin bowler after the legendary Shane Warne, and he has proved his statement right, time and over again. The SCG surface will offer some turn on days four and five, so Lyon will roar again for Australia to clean sweep England.

Fantasy Team for Australia Vs England 4th Test Match Predictions
