Ashes 2023 5th Test Probable Playing 11: The last and final test game of the Ashes 2023 will be played from July 27 – 31 at Kennington Oval, London. Australia retained the Ashes trophy right after the 4th Test ended as a draw after the final day of the test was washed off with rain.
The Ashes 2023 5th Test Probable Playing 11
Australia won the first two games of the Ashes 2023 while England won the 3rd Ashes. While England are under pressure to win the 4th match to stay alive, the final day of the match was washed off with rain.
England’s decision to go in with an unchanged XI has certainly raised some eyebrows with many not expecting Jimmy Anderson, who’s looked like but a shadow of himself in this series, to retain his spot, particularly on a ground that he doesn’t have the best record at.
Coming under fire for not picking a front-line spinner after taking a brutal battering at Manchester, Australia might look at rectifying that by playing Todd Murphy – particularly here at The Oval which has historically been one of the best places to bowl for spinners in the country.
Check out the probable 11 for the 5th Ashes 2023 game below:
David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green/Todd Murphy, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (c), Josh Hazlewood
Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
Australia are 2-1 ahead in the Ashes series. England thinks they should have been 3-1 ahead. Australia has retained the urn. England thinks they were robbed of it. Australia are looking for an outright victory at The Oval.
England are looking for a moral victory at The Oval. Australia are looking to win a series in England outright for the first time in 22 years. England wants to deny them that achievement even though they don’t believe in winning and losing.
