However, Ashes starts with a completely different and charged mindset. The players from both the teams will be quite excited to perform with the best of their abilities right from start of the five-match Test series. The Australian team will definitely have the upper hand as they will be playing in familiar home conditions.

Australia vs England Test Pitch Report

The pitch at The Gabba will have quite favourable conditions for the bowlers due to the overcast weather throughout the five days. However, there will be a great quality of bounce on this track that will work highly in favour of the pace bowlers as seen in the recent while.
