Preview –

England is the home team in this match and they will hoping for a win here. They have recently showed great performance against New Zealand in the ODI and they are ready to win this as well. The last time when Ashes was held, they were crushed by Australia by a humiliating 5-0 loss. They are ready for revenge and they will do everything in their power to win here. They have the home advantage and they will also get home supporters cheering for them. However, they will still enter the arena as the underdogs.

Australia on the other hand is the hot favorite in this match. They are the world champion and they did extremely well in the last ashes winning all the matches. Even their lowest win was over 150 runs. Their players are in good form and this will be the major trophy they plays after the last world cup and they are ready to win here.

Prediction –

We predict that Australia will win this match but we cannot underestimate the host nation and thus anything can happen in this match.
