AUS vs ENG: Possible Australia Playing 11 for 2nd Ashes Test


Australia Playing 11 – Australia got off their summer to the perfect start, as they thrashed England by nine wickets in the first of the five tests in the Ashes 2021-22. Pat Cummins, who was appointed the captain of Australia led his troops brilliantly and secured a dominating win over Joe Root’s England.

Australia will miss the services of the tall pacer, Josh Hazelwood who has been rules out of the second Test due to a side injury. David Warner’s participation is still in doubt, given the fact that he suffered a bruised rib during the first Test.

  • Josh Hazelwood’s absence means that Jhye Richardson is most likely to be handed his Ashes debut.
  • Michael Neser, who picked 7 wickets in Australia A’s win over England Lions will also be in the mix to replace Josh Hazelwood.
  • As stated by his teammate, Travis Head, David Warner is most likely to feature in the playing 11 for the second Test.
  • Barring a forced change in the form of Hazelwood’s injury, the hosts will be resist any temptation to change a winning comination.
  • Mitchell Starc is under some serious pressure after poor performances off-late. The left-arm pacer will surely have to justify his selection in the second Test.
