England will try to outlast their 251 defeat at Edgbaston and draw in their second test at Lord’s in the five-game series against Australia.
Men’s Ashes 2nd Test will take place at the home of cricket Lord’s, London on 14 August, 11.00am local Time.
England’s opening day victory in Birmingham was hampered by James Anderson’s injury as veteran Paceman dropped just four overs before leaving the field due to a calf injury. The hosts were unable to take advantage of them, despite having a good 90 lead, and Australia had full control of their second game, 487/7.
Despite this, English captain Joe Root hopes his bowling unit, likely to feature young Jofra Archer, will be victorious against Australia, and especially against Steve Smith, who scored 144 and 142 in the first test.
Meanwhile, Australia is being pumped. Her victory in Edgbaston was her first in the inaugural test of an away-from-Ashes series since 2005. Apart from Smith’s continued excellence as a hitter, Matthew Wade’s flowing century in the second innings would have greatly amused the management. Mitchell Starc, who was absent in Birmingham, will likely return to the XI and prove fatal on Lords famous hillside – conquering nine wickets in the two Lords games during the 2019 Men’s Cricket World Cup.
