ENG vs AUS Match & Dream 11 Prediction, Betting Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Analysis - Aug 01, 2019

The first Ashes test is always preceded by a lot of noise, hype, and posturing from both sides. All of this has been surprisingly absent ahead of the Ashes 2019 and probably shows the state of mind that both teams are in at the moment.

Australia is going to re-building a test side during the Ashes 2019 and trying to re-integrate players that were banned or had been missing because of injuries. England, on the other hand, have to try and get their minds around the long format of the game after having been so completely focused on the 50 over format to try and win the World Cup.

The conditions are going to be testing, there is some rain in the air, and there is no doubt that the shiny Duke ball is going to sing. Australia is the current holder of the Ashes but it has not won in England since 2001. England was dominated by Australia in the previous series and that would have left some cars. Can they bounce back in home conditions?

England vs Australia 1st Ashes test is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham, starting on the 1st of August 2019.

ENG vs AUS Team Previews


England has chosen a 14 man squad for the first test against Australia. That is not something we expect from England during a home test but it once again shows the uncertainty in the camp. James Anderson is recovering from an injury and we don’t think England is going to risk him in the first match of Ashes 2019.

There also seems to be a surplus of all-rounders in the England side and some tough selection decisions have to be made.

We think that James Anderson, Olly Stone, and Joe Denly are going to be the three players to miss out. It is tough on Denly who scored a fifty in his last inning against the West Indies and on Ollie Stone but the fight for a place in the eleven is tough.

England is going to be opening with Roy and Burns, two very different players in their approach to the game. We don’t think Jason Roy is going to have an easy time transitioning to test cricket. In fact, the entire English batting looks a bit suspect to us at the moment.

Joe root is back up to three, Stokes at 4, Bairstow at 5, Buttler at 6, Moeen at 7, Woakes at 8, Curran at 9, Archer at 10, and Broad at 11.

The batting is very long but could fall in a heap. The seam bowling department is much better with Woakes, Curran, Archer, and Broad to take up the duties. Moeen Ali has struggled against Australia in the past but we think he is going to be very effective in home conditions as well.

Australia could come up with several different combinations for the first Ashes 2019 test and they would all make sense. They have a number of players fighting for a few spots and getting the combination right is going to be one of the hardest jobs for Tim Payne and his support staff.

Here is what we think will happen. Australia is going to open with Warner and Bancroft, Khawaja at 3, Smith at 4, Head at 5, Wade at 6, Paine at 7, Cummins at 8, Lyon at 9, Pattinson at 10, and Hazelwood at 11.

Mitchell Starc is not going to be picked for the first game because the noise from the camp suggests he is the same kind of bowler as Pat Cummins. This is not something that makes a lot of sense to us especially considering the manner in which Starc dominated the English batsmen in the previous Ashes series but that is the way the Australian teams seems hellbent ongoing.

This playing eleven gives Australia a strong batting lineup. Warner did not score a century in the previous Ashes series in England but we think he is going to set the record straight in this one. He is an improved batsman who is not afraid to take his time and wait for the bad ball.

Cameron Bancroft has been playing in English conditions for quite some time now and Steve Smith is a world-class batsman even though he may not have played test cricket for a while now.

Australia’s batting is strong and Mattew Wade at number 6 could be a real game-changer as well.

The bowling is very strong and can take on England’s batting lineup easily. The trick is going to be getting used to the correct lengths to bowl in English conditions. Josh Hazelwood is our pick to be the most effective bowler for Australia if the ball swings around while Pat Cummins is going to be threatening at all times.

The duel between Nathan Lyon and the English batsmen is going to be very important as well considering the excellent record that Lyon has against them in previous matches.

Australia Playing 11

David Warner, CT Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, TM Head, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine, James Pattinson, Pat Cummins, Peter Siddle, Nathan Michael Lyon.

ENG vs AUS Toss Prediction

The side the wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Overhead conditions will remain overcast throughout although the surface could become more difficult for batting as the match progresses.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

England vs Australia 1st Ashes 2019 Test Match is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The weather forecast is not very good for the first test. There is rain predicted on every single day with the chances of showers increasing as move deeper into the test.

The pitch at Edgbaston is sporting a brown tinge, something that both teams may not have expected. Expect plenty of help for the bowling side under overcast conditions and the Duke ball in hand. We think the test match is going to move fast and the bowlers will hold an upper hand throughout the proceedings.

ENG vs AUS Dream11 Prediction

Dream11 prediction for England vs Australia 1st Ashes test is going to be fun to make. We are going in for a bowler dominated side on a surface expected to offer them help and overcast conditions predicted for the entire week.

Wicketkeeper: Matthew Wade is not going to have the gloves with Tim Paine in the side but he is in superb batting form and will want to make the most of that for sure.

Batsmen: We have picked Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft as our batsmen. That's right. Not one English batsman from this category. All these three batsmen have a lot to prove in this series and we are a firm believer in the power of motivation. There is no doubt about the class of Warner or Smith while Cameron Bancroft has been playing in English conditions a lot lately and should be able to adapt well.

All-rounders: Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali are two genuine all-rounders that will be expected to contribute with both the bat and ball. We believe Ben Stokes is the best batsman in this English side right now in test match cricket after Joe Root and his bowling is going to be crucial too. Moeen Ali's bowling is going to be a factor if the match gets into the third and fourth day as well.

Bowlers: James Anderson, Pat Cummins, Chris Woakes, Josh Hazelwood, and Stuart Broad are our five bowlers for this match. These are the players that we believe will get us the most Dream11 points. They are going to be in the game for all five days and will not suffer as much because of the lost time due to any rain that might fall.

Captain and Vice-Captain: We have selected Josh Hazelwood as captain and Chris Woakes as vice-captain for this match.
