The Ashes Third Test: England Hoping For Fortune to Turn Around
The Australians crushed England’s in both of the opening Test of the Ashes series 2021-22
The last chance alive for the Englishmen’s to prove they are deserving and keep the hope alive to win the Ashes 2021-22 trophy.
Australia has proved to be one of the best sides in the longer format of Cricket sport. Their bowlers and the batters have been on top of their game and dominated the England side.
The Australian Test season started with a defeat against India Early this year. They have learned from their mistakes of the last series defeat in their hometown (4-0) and have come back stronger to conquer and reign in the test format.
England fans were excited to see the return of their fast bowlers Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad in the second test; hence it made no difference to the Australia and team; they still put 473 in the first innings and 230 in the second to conquer the English Sides. “They defeated the Englands by a high run margin of 275 Runs.”
Therefore the third test match arrives on December 26 in the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia. It will be one hell of a fight between the two of the greatest international cricket side.
The England’s need to fight back and conquer the Australians; it is their last chance to prove that they are not the underdogs but are the fighting champions.
