AUS vs ENG 3rd Test, Ashes: 3 key players to play an instrumental role at Headingley Test


The next Ashes test will take place in Headingley, at Leeds where Australia will face England for the third round. Though the Kangaroos have still a 1-0 lead in the series, the team is wounded after the injury of their stellar batsman Steve Smith. England on the other side is confident enough to go with the same playing XI as the 2nd test, who helped them draw the match.

After the inclusion of Jofra Archer in the team, the team is performing quite positively and will certainly try to establish an upper hand in the next text. But before that, let’s have a look at these three amazing players who can be the highlight of the match.
