The long gap between the 2nd test from July 19 and the start of the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston on Wednesday (July 29) has incresed the anticipation.
The gap olso provided ample opportunity for players from both sides to get prepared and olso allowed Chris Rogers time to recover from the dizzy spell that forced him to retire ill at Lord’s.
The series is tied at 1-1 after England’s win in Cardiff which was followed by Australia’s success at Lord’s.
Australia looked out for the count after being defeated by 169-run in the first Test, but the manner in which they counter attacked to win the second game by a commanding 405 runs, suggests that they are in form. And with confidence and momentum on their side, Michael Clarke’s men would fancy their chances once again.
England (From): Alastair Cook(c), Adam Lyth, Ian Bell, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Steven Finn, Adil Rashid
