England Announce Squad for Fifth Ashes Test 2023: England has announced a 14-member squad for the fifth and final Test of the Ashes series. Let us tell you that Australia is ahead 2-1 in this five-match series. Actually, England’s almost won fourth test was drawn due to rain, after which now the Ashes trophy will remain with Australia.
If the England team wins the fifth and final Test of the series, then the 2023 Ashes series will be drawn 2–2, but the trophy will remain with Australia, as the Kangaroos won the previous Ashes series.
In the fourth Test, England had thrown everything. His victory was also almost certain, but Australia got lucky. The fourth Test ended in a draw due to rain washing out almost half of the fourth day’s play and the entire fifth day.
Now in the fifth Test, Ben Stokes’ team has a chance to avoid losing the series. England have not made any changes in their team for the fifth and last Test. However, despite this, changes can be seen in the playing eleven.
Even before the fifth Test, England captain Ben Stokes has indicated a change in the playing eleven. The BBC quoted Stokes as saying that we are very tired. Before the Oval Test, we have to see who is fully fit and who is not.
It is believed that senior fast bowler James Anderson can be given rest in the fifth Test. Young Josh Tang is expected to get a chance in his place. Apart from this, no change is expected in the playing eleven.
England squad for fifth test Ben Stokes (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root, Josh Tong, Harry Brook, Jack Crawley, Ben Duckett, Dan Lawrence, Chris Woakes and Mark Wood.
