AUS vs ENG Dream11 Prediction

Australia vs England Test Match Prediction:

Match: AUS vs ENG Test Match Prediction
Time: 08 December, 05:30 AM (IST)
Series: 1st Test Match
Venue: The Gabba – Brisbane, Australia

Info:

  • Steve Smith has hit 27 Test centuries and is one of the world’s best batters. He is vice-captain in the team and is our pick for Australia’s highest run scorer in this opening Test. With the ball, we are backing Josh Hazlewood for Australia’s top wicket taker. He took 3 wickets in both innings during the 2017 Ashes Test in Brisbane.
  • England captain Joe Root is the leading run scorer in Test cricket during 2021. He has hit 6 Test centuries this year and is a strong choice for England’s highest run scorer in Brisbane. Ollie Robinson has been in excellent form since making his Test debut earlier this year. He is our tip for England’s top wicket taker against Australia at the Gabba.
  • The opening Ashes Test often brings the best out of Steve Smith and he is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award

Weather Report:

Thunderstorms are forecast over the opening three days. Hot and humid conditions with the temperature peaking at 31 degrees.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Gabba is far greener than in previous years. Expect more movement and swing than would usually be expected at the venue.

Toss Prediction:

2002 was the last time that a captain won the toss and chose to field in an Ashes Test at the Gabba. We predict that both Joe Root and Pat Cummins will choose to bat if they win the toss.

Winning Chances:

Who will win today match: AUS vs ENG Test Match Fantasy Team

This has been one of the strangest build-ups to an Ashes series with the poor weather, a change in Australia’s captain and bio bubbles all providing plenty of distractions. We are expecting a close Test match with Australia coming out on top to take a 1-0 lead.

AUS Key Players:

Marnus Labuschagne: The Australian number three batter has been a revelation in Test cricket since returning to the side during the 2019 Ashes Test.

Steve Smith: The former Australian captain is back in the leadership group as vice-captain. He will be confident of hitting another century in this Test

Pat Cummins: The new Test captain is expected to relinquish new ball duties. He is targeting becoming the top wicket taker for the third successive Ashes series.

ENG Key Players:

Joe Root: England’s captain has been in scintillating form in 2021. He has already hit centuries in Sri Lanka, India and England this year.

Ben Stokes: The all-rounder returns to the side after missing the majority of the summer to prioritise his mental health. He is a fine player who Australia will be wary of.

Jimmy Anderson: The veteran England swing bowler is at the start of his fifth Ashes Tour. He is the leading pace bowling wicket taker in Test history.

Team Forms:

AUS Team Form: Australia have not played Test cricket since January and have not won any of their last three matches in this format.

ENG Team Form: England have won only one of their last nine Test matches and have not won a Test in Australia since 2011.
