Ashes 2019 | We have forgotten about Headingley, says Ben Stokes

Australia have to win one of the last two Tests, or draw both, to retain the Ashes in England for the first time since 2001. Starc proved fitness and form by picking up seven wickets with a four-wicket haul in the second innings of the practice match against Derbyshire, which Australia won by an innings margin. We will provide you with a brief detail of rain forecast and weather update from Manchester where ENG vs AUS 4th Test Day 1 will take place.

David Warner, Steve Smith, and Cameron Bancroft were handed a ban from global cricket for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in a Test series against South Africa in March 2018.

Captain Tim Paine said the team will have one more look at the wicket on Wednesday before making a final call, but noted that the dryness of the pitch could encourage reverse swing and bring Starc into the contest. Australia had a really poor hour, they'll reflect on that and I think they got quite a few things wrong.

"Credit to Warner at Headingley, that morning was probably as good a time to bowl as you'll ever get in Test cricket: cloudy, heavy, swinging, seaming".

Here he returned and slipped straight back into the focus, judgement and idiosyncrasies that brought him scores of 144, 142 and 92 in his three previous innings in the series.

"The instant disappointment was there for all of us to see after, on the field", Paine said when asked if Lyon took some time to recover from the loss.

Rescuers also used jet skis to reach some people as choppy, coffee-coloured floodwaters reached roofs and the tops of palm trees. But meteorologist Daniel Brown cautioned that even "a small deviation" in its projected track could take the storm towards land.


Australian selectors surprised many by dropping Usman Khawaja, opting to stick with the hardy Marnus Labuschagne in the 12-man squad, while the fast bowling rotation continues as Mitchell Starc comes back in to replace James Pattinson.

The tourists were on the brink of retaining the Ashes only for Ben Stokes's superb 135 not out delivered England a stunning one-wicket win in the third Test at Headingley. They obtained to 286/9, still requiring 73 runs for an unlikely victory.

Marcus Harris, Warner's fellow left-handed opener, was then lbw to Broad (2-35 from 10 overs) for 13.

It was Archer's bouncer which struck the fearsome blow at Lord's that left Smith flat on the ground, with the delayed onset of concussion symptoms forcing him to miss the third Test at Headingley.

Ben Stokes was the hero for England.

This was Overton's fourth Test but first in England.
