AUS vs ENG Today Match Prediction: The biggest of the biggest tests as per England and Australia is here. The 5 test carnival and one of cricket’s spiciest rivalries will be on show over the course of next 2 months. Australia are starting their new era under Pat Cummins after Tim Pain stepped down from the captaincy due to the controversies. England will have the services of one of world’s best all rounders in Ben Stokes who took an indefinite break before the 2nd phase of IPL this year. Joe Root will take the field as the #1 batter in tests who has had a dream run in the year 2021.
Form guide (Last 5 tests)
Records at Brisbane (Tests)
AUS- 40 wins, 9 defeats, 1 tie and 13 drawn in 63 games
ENG- 4 wins, 12 defeats and 5 drawn in 21 games
Australia have left out Usman Khawaja out of the playing 11 who has been in sublime touch in the domestic circuit. England will have bat time in Australia for starters as thats one of the ways to tire out Australian fast bowlers over the period of 5 tests. That was the method India followed where Cheteshwar Pujara used to bat time big time which took a lot out of the Australian bowlers going into the second half of the series. This is Joe Root’s best opportunity to improve his mediocre average on the Australian shores. He is yet to cross a 3 digit mark in Australia which doesn’t sit well for a player of his calibre.
The game has high chances of getting interrupted by rain on a frequent basis and it may play a part in not forcing a result but Australia start as favorites in the AUS vs ENG dream11 prediction as the odds are in favor of them according to the betting sites.
Australia have Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne along with Cameron Green in their middle order who form the core of Australia’s batting department. England will have the tried and tested combination of Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler in their middle order.
Bet365- AUS- 2.10, ENG- 4.75, Draw- 2 65
