Australia beat England in the Old Trafford series

Australia beat England in the Old Trafford series decider yesterday.

The bowlers starred in that game for the Kangaroos as they bundled England out for just 138 on a flat wicket.

When England won the toss in the morning, it seemed they had snatched great advantage as batting would be quite easy in bright sunshine.

But, Australia broke through in the very first over.
Mitchell Starc, the left arm quick who was back in the XI for Australia after being rested for the 4th game, trapped Jason Roy plumb in front twice.

England might make two changes in the playing XI

England might make two changes in the playing XI for the third game of the ongoing Ashes series.

One would obviously be Jonny Bairstow replacing Gary Ballance who has been dropped after a run of poor shows in the recent test matches.

Apart from that, there also have been talks that Mark Wood might have to make space for Steven Finn.

Wood was pretty unimpressive in both the innings at Lord’s. His pace was down and he did not look penetrative which prompted some of the experts to say that the selectors should think about resting him.
