Australia vs England 5th Test – Dream11 fantasy prediction, lineup and more

We are finally at the end of the Ashes series, and after suffering a humiliating experience down under, the Aussies will host the English for the fifth test, set to take place at Hobart.

Australia vs England Preview

When it comes to the Ashes, the competition has been pretty much neck nack and neck between the two nations. Mind games have been played on the field and off the field, but this year, the Australian side has just been too much to handle for the English. They have been dominant in every aspect of the game, and it has stumped their rivals who have struggled to find an answer.

With a 3-0 deficit in the series, the English got their first positive breakthrough after they managed to salvage a draw in the 4th test. Keeping everything in mind, you can say that this was too little too late, but the English will want to carry this momentum into the final test and try to win it, just for the sake of pride.

Australia vs England – Pitch Report

The wicket at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart is expected to have some balanced conditions both for the batters and bowlers throughout the five days of the Test match. What we need to remember is that this is going to be a pink ball, day-night test match, which means the bowlers will have a lot of say as the day progresses. Also, rain gods might play spoilsport on the first three days and the overcast conditions will make things difficult for the batters.

Australia vs England – Probable XI

Australia

David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Jhye Richardson

England

Zak Crawley, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow/Ollie Pope, Sam Billings, Jack Leach, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood

Australia vs England – Top picks for Dream11

Usman Khawaja – After making a return to the main lineup after a hiatus, Usman Khawaja lit up the last test with centuries in both innings. His inclusion in the middle order has brought a new dimension to the Australian game and we fully expect to see him bringing the fire for the final Ashes Test.

Pat Cummins – The Australian skipper has been a very consistent performer with the ball and has been instrumental in taking some decent scalps in all the tests in the series. IN the absence of Scott Boland, Cummins will have to take a few more scalps as he attempts to complete the English whitewash down under.

Jonny Bairstow – The man who saved the English from embarrassment in the fourth test, Bairstow will be a key player for England, and he has the capability to carry the innings on his shoulders as long as the players on the other end support him. He will be a safe and high-earning pick for your Dream11 fantasy lineup.

Joe Root – Although experiencing a dismal series as captain, Joe Root has once again been sensational with the bat while the rest of the England batters have not helped their in-form skipper. Root has composed a fine total of 277 runs from 8 innings that include three fifties.

Australia vs England – Predicted Winner

Although England salvaged a draw in the fourth Test, the Australians have been near perfect in their approach and will be enticed to complete the Ashes as a whitewash. That and given that the Aussies have the home advantage, we expect them to win the match and wrap up the series on a terrific high.
