England drew flak for some of the aggressive decisions they have taken but Ben Stokes lived by those. The home side’s penchant for results makes them an exciting team to watch. Australia proved that they won’t be a pushover, but there could be some quick retaliation from the English. Put your money on an England double chance while individual markets also appeal.

Head to Head


There have been 357 Tests between England and Australia so far with England winning 110, losing 151 and drawing 96. The last time they played at the Lord’s was in 2019 when the match ended in a draw after the first day’s play was washed out.

England Form


England gave a good account of their Bazball game but came up short at Edgbaston. They will have happy memories of winning at the Lord’s against Ireland prior to the Ashes, but that is a moot point if they can’t improve from the first Test defeat.

The Three Lions have won 11 of their last 14 Tests now, losing three. The defeat at Edgbaston has shown that their bowling needs to buckle up.

Joe Root sparkled with the bat in both innings, while Stuart Broad bowled his heart out.

England Team News


England announced their team on Tuesday with one change from the first Test. Pace bowler Josh Tongue has replaced Moeen Ali in the playing XI as England keep their faith in an all-pace attack.

Australia Form


After the comprehensive win in the WTC Championship final, Australia held their nerve for a two-wicket win in the first Test. It was a case of the Aussies playing to their strengths.

Despite the publicity around Bazball, Australia’s batting revolved around the heroics of Usman Khawaja who scored 141 and 65 in the first Test. Nathan Lyon took four wickets in each of the innings.

The visitors love coming to the Lord’s having lost just two of their previous 22 Tests here against England – winning 11 and drawing nine.

Australia Team News


Australia could look to unleash Mitchell Starc after the pacer was dropped for the first Test. That could mean leaving out Scott Boland who was uncharacteristically expensive in the first Test.

Verdict

England may have lost the first Test but they were in the game for large portions of the match. Another aggressive approach is in the offing as they look to make a comeback in the series.

I am backing England on the double chance with a reduced stake. Keep an eye on the individual markets where backing Khawaja to score a fifty in the first innings, Broad to return England’s best bowling figures could be worth looking out.
