Series/tournament name: The Ashes
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester
Date: 4 September , 2019
Time: 3:30 p.m. IST
After a cracking game at Headingley, the euphoria has settled and England will look to continue their resurgence in the series. Australia, meanwhile, have a massive boost coming their way with Steve Smith fit and firing for the Old Trafford Test. With Marnus Labuschagne also sealing down his spot, they have dropped Usman Khawaja for this Test match. England will look to continue their momentum but will have their task cut out with Smith back in the setup.
It is expected to rain at Manchester on the first three days before it gives way to a cloudy and intermittently sunny weather on days four and five.
The pitch is expected to assist the seamers and we could see the overhead conditions play a major role. It is unlikely that the Test will last all five days.
Injuries and replacements:
Usman Khawaja dropped, Steven Smith in
