Australia and England will face each other for one last time in the fifth match of the Ashes 2023, on July 27, 2023, at the Kennington Oval, in London 

Australia will be coming into the contest on the back of the Ashes retention as the rain had the final say in the fourth Tests in the last two days, resulting in a draw. Currently, Australia lead the Ashes 2-1, and they would hope to win the final match, not only to win the series but also to gain 12 valuable WTC points.

Meanwhile, all the hopes in the Australian dressing room will rely on Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne to score big, while the trio of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc will be their key in the bowling department. 

England, on the other hand, will come into the contest after their chance to stay alive in the series got ruined by incessant rains in the last game. Notably, they ticked every box in the third and fourth Tests, respectively. However, the drawn result in the fourth Test meant that they failed to bring back ‘The Ashes’ back home.

England batters were over the Australian bowlers as six out of the top seven batters crossed the 50-run mark. Zak Crawley scored a remarkable century (189 runs) while Jonny Bairstow toyed with the Aussie bowlers scoring 99* off 81, he missed out on his century, due to lack of batters in another end. England would look to continue their Bazball approach and will hope to gain valuable 12 points in WTC
