England fast bowler Mark Wood looks to be bowling incisively in the Headingley Test. The fast bowler did not play in the first two matches of Ashes 2023. In this way, he seems to be making use of the opportunity he got in the third match. Wood bowled over 150 kmph on the first day of the match. Australian opener Usman Khawaja was dismissed on his own ball.
The third Test between England and Australia started on Thursday (July 6) at Headingley Stadium. The hosts England had to accept defeat in the first two matches of the series. In this case, it is necessary for them to win the third Test. Against this backdrop, the England team management made important changes in their playing eleven for the third Test. One of the changes is to play Mark Wood.
Mark Wood took the wicket of Usman Khawaja in his fourth over in the Headingley Test. Usman Khawaja was playing on a personal 13 runs in the 13th over of the match. But the last ball of the over eluded him and went straight into the stumps and the opener was clean bowled. Mark Wood bowled this ball at a speed of 152 km per hour. This is Wood’s fourth century of the match, having only cost two runs before that. Wood bowled no runs off the first 22 balls of the match. Khawaja took two runs off the 23rd over and was dismissed on the 24th ball. Earlier, in his second over of the match, Wood bowled the ball at a speed of 155.3 kmph.

As for England’s playing XI for this match, James Anderson, Josh Tongue and Ollie Pope have been rested. Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali have been brought in to fill their gaps. If England lose this crucial match, they will lose the Ashes series at home. Because Australia has already taken a 0-2 lead by winning the first two matches. After losing the toss in the Headingley Test, the Australian team came into bat. But both their batsmen returned to the tent with the team’s score on 42. David Warner and Usman Khawaja scored 4 and 13 runs respectively. (Mark Wood’s incisive bowling in the Headingley Test)
