ENG vs AUS Today Match Prediction, Ashes 2023, Who Will Win the Match?
After a couple of results that didn’t go their way, England would be desperate to stay alive in this series through this game. This is a very crucial game and is a chance for England to crawl back into the series.
Ben Stokes played a gutsy knock of 155 runs in the 4th innings of the 2nd Test and had infused life and hope into the innings of England when he was there.
But the moment he was dismissed, the chips went down for England. If he gets some able support from the middle-order of England, then we can witness something special here at Headingley.
