Fans can expect a cracking game of cricket as England will take on Australia under lights in the final at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart. The visitors finally managed to put an end to their losing streak in Ashes 2021-22 with a draw in the fourth Test.
Englishmen are likely to draw some inspiration from their resistance in the Sydney Test. However, the team is consumed by injury concerns and selection headaches ahead of the fifth Test.
Jos Buttler has traveled back home with a fractured finger and young wicketkeeper Sam Billings is likely to make his Test debut. Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes are also doubtful as they faced injuries in the Sydney game.
James Anderson can also be rested for the final game. Thus, it can be difficult for England to field a decent playing XI against the host. Australia can also make some changes to their playing XI for Bellerive Test.
After his scintillating performance in the fourth Test, Usman Khawaja will be opening alongside David Warner in the final showdown. Travis Head will be making his comeback while Marcus Harris has been dropped.
Australia will be facing problems while picking up their pace attack. Josh Hazelwood isn’t available for selection whale Scott Boland is racing against time to get fit for the game. The seamer can be replaced by Jhye Richardson for the game.
