    After continuous below-par performances in the first two Ashes Test matches, England have finally dropped the duo of Rory Burns and Ollie Pope for the third Test match. Zak Crawley and Jonny Bairstow have been included in the England playing XI against Australia for the Boxing Day Test. The visitors have also replaced Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes with Jack Leach and Mark Wood in order to add some sort of variety in their bowling attack. While trailing 0-2 in the five-match Test series, England find themselves in a desperate situation as they need to win this third Test in order to keep the Ashes 2021-22 series alive.
