|🤔 What||ENG vs AUS, 4th Test, 2019|
|📅 When||4th September, Wednesday|
|📍 Where||Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester|
Another high-voltage test awaits England & Australia
A Ben Stokes-inspired England leveled the Ashes against all odds courtesy one of the best Test matches played in this decade. A win of that kind from the jaws of defeat should only boost the confidence of the hosts. They now play at their skipper Joe Root’s favorite hunting ground – The Old Trafford. A largely under-performing batting attack will be shuffled as England aim to win the Ashes.
Weaknesses: Form of batsmen
Australia are hurt from the most marginal of losses in the last test and they will be eager to make a comeback. Speaking of comebacks, Australia’s best batsman Steve Smith is set to make a return to the playing XI a day after he has also regained the No. 1 spot in the ICC Test batsmen ratings. Hence, you can expect a couple of forced changes in the Australian side.
Strengths: Fast bowling resources
Weaknesses: Form of openers
We Know Cricket Hot Take 🔥
There are a few batsmen in both sides who haven’t quite hit their straps yet – like Warner, Root, Bairstow, and Buttler. All of them are due a big knock and they can be good options for your fantasy teams in both GLs and H2H contests.
Another trick can be to include bowlers who can swing the ball since it is expected to be overcast during the Test match. In that case, bowlers like Starc, Hazlewood, and Broad can be trump cards.

Read on to find out which player you should include in your team in our ENG vs AUS 4th Test Dream 11 Free Team and Today Match Prediction
🧤 Wicket Keeper: Jos Buttler has been unlucky in his last few matches and this might be the perfect time for him to get some runs under his belt. Jonny Bairstow can be a good option as well to fill the wicket-keeper slot.
🏏 Batsmen: Steve Smith is making a comeback into the side after a spectacular first two games in the Ashes. Rory Burns is in good form. Joe Root is due a big knock. Marcus can be a budget pick as well for your Dream 11 squad.
😎 All Rounders: Ben Stokes and Marnus Labuschagne warrant definite spots in our Dream 11 team based on their performances in the Ashes so far.
🧶 Bowlers: With rain expected on all 5 days, we go for an all-pace attack. Jofra Archer has posed troubles to every Australian batsman and he is a must-have in the side. Josh Hazlewood and Stuart Broad have been impressive so far and the conditions in Manchester will suit them. Australia is all set to unleash M Starc at the English and he will leave no stone unturned to make an impact right away.
