Ashes Series Australia Playing Xi
Australia vs England: Australia’s new captain Pat Cummins has put an end to all speculation about the Playing XI squad for the first Test of the Ashes series. The decision by the Australia captain 3 days before the start of the Ashes series shows the confidence the team has with him. The Australia-England Ashes series starts on December 8. The first Test between the two teams will be played at the Gabba venue in Brisbane.
Playing for Australia has become the biggest question about 2 places in XI. Who will bat 5th and 2nd whether Mitchell Starc will take the team command in the bowling attack? Cummins answered all these questions by clearing the name of Playing XI. He was ranked number one at Travis Head in the last playing 11. Also, Mitchell Starc will be watching the bowling attack.
Australia playing XI for Ashes first Test:
Marcus Harris, David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (keeper), Pat Cummins (captain), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood
After selecting the team, Pat Cummins said that it would be difficult to choose between Travis Head and Queensland captain Usman Khawaja to bat at midfield. He mentioned that both of them play wonderfully. “Khwaja has experience. However Travis Head has played a lot of cricket with the team in the last two years. We thought he would be more effective on home soil. He said this was the reason why he preferred Head over Khawaja.
Pace responsibilities for Stark, Hazlewood, Cummins.
Questions have been raised about Stark’s selection as Gee Richardson has performed well in Sheffield Shield matches. Gabba took 15 wickets in 2 matches last month, including 8 wickets. However, Pat Cummins said that with the new ball, Starc and Hazlewood will take charge and will continue to be the first change in bowling.
