Preview:

Australia will take on England in the 4th Test of the series. Australia have retained the Ashes urn after winning the Melbourne Test inside 3 days, thanks to a magnificent bowling performance from the debutant Scott Boland, who took 7 wickets. The hosts aren’t looking to settle for this as they are aiming to whitewash the visitors 5-0. Travis Head has tested positive for COVID-19 and Usman Khawaja will replace him in the eleven.

England have struggled as a team completely in this series. They didn’t show any kind of fight in the third Test of the series and lost the match by an innings and 14 runs. Still opening combination is a huge headache for the team management. There is nothing to lose as they already lost the series 0-3. They will be playing for pride and need to play an excellent brand of cricket if they want to beat the Aussies.
