AUS vs ENG Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Updates For 5th Test

Usman Khawaja will open the innings for Australia alongside David Warner.


Australia will face England in the 5th and final Test of the series which will get underway from Friday. Australia’s dream of whitewashing England didn’t come to fruition as the fourth Test ended in a nail-biting draw. There were many positive outcomes for the hosts as  Usman Khawaja’s twin centuries set the stage on fire. They have a 100 percent win record in the Pink ball Tests and will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten streak.

England, on the other handm had something to cheer for in this series as they managed to draw the Test at the famous SCG. Zak Crawley played fluently in the second innings which is a good sign for the visitors. Jos Buttler is out of the final Test due to injury and Sam Billings is called as he is the replacement. It will be a huge achievement if they beat the in-form Aussies at Hobart.
