England vs Australia Ashes Series 2023: Preview
Skipper Ben Stokes will be hoping to lead England to victory in the 2023 Ashes – their first win in the Ashes for eight years – when they take on old foes Australia in the highly anticipated summer test series.
The hosts have a lot to make up for, having lost the last two Ashes series down under and drawing at home in 2019.
As the last series showed 17 months ago, there is a lot to make amends for England, with that meeting ending 4-0 as Pat Cummins’ side handed their rivals one of the worst Ashes defeats in recent history.
England are currently third, behind Australia in the ICC world test rankings, but are a very different proposition these days led by Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum and their more aggressive “Bazball” tactics, and will be determined to strike back and find the world’s most famous urn back.
Jofra Archer and Olly Stone are both permanently out for England, but Stokes is expected to play a “full role” as an all-rounder during the series after seeking treatment for chronic tendonitis.
The key to Australia’s success will be its intimidating middle-order, with Marnus Labuschagne, Travis Head and Steve Smith showing their prowess by piling up the runs in their recent series against the West Indies.
