Australia are leading by 221 runs after Day 3.
Australia topped the 2nd Ashes Test in 2023 as both batsmen and bowlers played sensational cricket and proved their authority at the legendary Lords. Notably, despite a strong start for the home side, England faced the fury of the Australian Quix on the third day when England lost six wickets for 47 runs in the morning session. Ben Stokes’ team ended up scoring 325 points in two innings, but could struggle in the remaining days.
Meanwhile, Mitchell Stark was one of Australia’s star bowlers on Day 3. Pacemakers sacked Ben Stokes earlier in the day, but said this was important for former cricketer Glenn McGrath. With Australia leading by 221 points at the end of the third round, he believes England captain Wickett will set the tone for the away side.
“His second ball of the day set the tone and was an important early wicket. Good bowling from Mitchell Stark just a little further off the pitch,” McGrath told the BBC’s Test Match Special. Told.
“I don’t think Mitchell Stark likes bowling too short. Sometimes it kills the action.” knew he wouldn’t like it. He will do a little better, but if he lacks confidence or doesn’t seem to like short balls, he will get the ball more often,” the 53-year-old added.
Meanwhile, England will hope to come back stronger on the penultimate day of the second test after a tough day. The morning session will ultimately be a very important one that will decide the fate of the match. The home side will need a quick wicket to stay in the game or Australia will have a chance to steal the game from England.
After her humiliating 4–0 defeat in Ashe’s last competition, England changed the game, revolutionizing Test cricket and enjoying the longest format of success. However, a losing streak against arch-rivals could be demoralizing, and the team is expected to do their best in the remaining two days.
