Cricket News sort by England Vs Australia 5th Test at London - Aug 21-25, 2013

Ricky Ponting’s retirement has expectedly left a big hole in Australia’s batting line-up, that at the significant number three position. And one of the reasons for Australia’s failure in this Ashes has been the fact that he haven’t found a stable influence at the anchor position over the four Tests.

England has made three changes to its squad for the Fifth and Final Ashes Test at The Oval in London which is to begin on the 21st.

England all-rounder Tim Bresnan has been ruled out of action for the rest of this season owing to a stress fracture in his lower back. The hosts who have already secured the Ashes 3-0 will be forced to bring in a replacement for Tim Bresnan.
