England vs Australia Prediction Preview:

Welcome to ENG vs AUS Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. In yet another pulsating Ashes game, England will be locking horns with Australia.

Australia pulled off a stunning 2-wicket victory in their previous game and would be desperate to extend their lead. They know that England are a class side and the lead could dissipate at any moment.   

The match at Edgbaston went right down to the wire and a 55-run partnership between Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins did the trick for Australia.

England would be heavily relying on their pacers in the form of James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Ollie Robinson to help them equalise in this Test series.

ENG vs AUS Today Match Prediction, Ashes 2023, Who Will Win the Match?


England have always been an embodiment of resilience and the never-say-die attitude. You cannot keep them in the shackles for long.

We can expect the Brendon McCullum coached side to come out all guns blazing in this game at Lord’s.

Most of their players are in form and they would be fancying their chances against Australia.

Plus, Australia have a few concerns in their side. The form of Marnus Labuschange and David Warner have been concerning and England would be looking to exploit these opportunities and crawl back into the Ashes 2023 series.
