Australia lead the match 2-1 and have already retained the title, but England are keen to level the series after a draw was recorded on the final day of the fourth Test at Old Trafford.
According to England captain Ben Stokes, Jimmy Anderson is the greatest fast bowler ever to play the game. He hasn’t been able to make the impact and get the wins he would have liked in this series and he has been criticized, but he is a quality player. Australia came to south London with an insurmountable lead in the Ashes series, but in a similar scenario in 2019, the team failed to win the last Test and had to settle for a draw.
Australia captain Pat Cummins said his team is determined to win the series outright. The tourists have not won an Ashes series in England since 2001, so there is a lot at stake despite the disappointment of rainy weather last weekend.
