3 matches of the five-match Ashes series 2023 have been completed. After these matches, Australia is leading the series by 2-1. The fourth Test match between England and Australia will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester. Ahead of this match, England announced their 14-man squad on Tuesday (July 11). Interestingly, there has been no change in this.
England vs Australia (England vs Australia) England wicket keeper Jonny Bairstow has managed to get a place in the playing eleven. Interestingly, Bairstow is not in form either in the batting or wicketkeeping department. So there was a demand to replace him with Ben Fox in the team. However, the team management has shown faith in Bairstow.
Ollie Robinson also joined the team
On the other hand, fast bowler Olly Robinson was ruled out on the first day of the third Test due to back pain. Also, could not play much in that match. He has also been retained in this team. However, England will decide whether James Anderson, who will now not play in the third Test at Headingley, will get a chance to return to his home ground. Also, Josh Tong is a strong contender after taking five wickets at Lord’s.
