Despite trailing 1-0 going into the Ashes Third Test, there is plenty of optimism within the England camp. The pressure is still on them to regain the Ashes, but after a thrilling second Test draw at Lord’s, the momentum seems to have shifted to the home side.

England to win the 3rd Test
   Best Bet
Jofra Archer to be Top England Bowler (1st Innings) 3/1
Joe Root to score 1st innings 50 11/8

The series moves to Leeds where Headingley will host its first Ashes Test since 2009 when Australia won the fourth Test to level the series at 1-1 after England won the toss and decided to bat first. England were skittled out for just 105 runs with Peter Siddle taking five for 21. Australia’s first innings total of 445 left England needing to 344 runs to make the tourists bat again. Mitchell Johnson took five for 69 as England fell 80 runs short on the third day.

Charlie Mullan picks out some of the bets available for the 3rd Test.

England to win 3rd Test @ 5/6 (bet365)

England will feel they could and should have won the second Test at Lord’s but they couldn’t take the final four Australian wickets needed to secure victory after their declaration left Australia needing 267 runs to win.

After being reduced to 19 for two and 47 for three, avoiding defeat became the number one priority for the tourists who were grateful for the 85-run partnership between Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne, who made history by being the first ever concussion substitute in Test cricket after replacing Steve Smith for the second innings.

Labuschagne top scored with 59 before being caught by Joe Root off the bowling of Jack Leach and he could replace Smith for the Headingley Test if Smith has not recovered from the concussion he suffered when hit by a delivery from Jofra Archer in the first innings.

Even if Smith is fit enough to play, his confidence might be affected by that hit and his incredible scoring spree in this series, that has seen the skipper score 144, 142 and 92, come to an end. Without Smith’s runs, Australia’s batting has looked average.

England cannot afford to lose this Test (5/6 with bet365 to win) and with a vociferous crowd cheering them on at Headingley, the home side should level the series with two Tests to play at Old Trafford and the Oval.









Odds correct as of 19th Aug, 14:27 Odds subject to change.

Jofra Archer top England bowler 1st innings @ 3/1 (William Hill)

Ben Stokes was officially named man of the match at Lord’s for his unbeaten 115 in the second innings as England went about setting a challenging total for Australia to chase for victory. But Archer must have been considered for the accolade on his debut after striking fear into the Australian’s batting order with a superb display of fast bowling.

Joe Root can be forgiven for asking Archer to bowl a total of 44 overs in the match and it would have been more had the umpires not deemed the light too bad for Travis Head and Pat Cummins to face as England eventually ran out of time on the final day.

Archer (3/1 with William Hill to be top England bowler) introduced himself with a devastating display including bowling the Super Over to guide England to their first ever World Cup success. Archer followed up his two wickets in the first innings with three in the second but there could have been so many more as he got the Australian to play and miss time and time again.

Unplayable most of the time, Archer can expect to be given the ball early at Headingley. Stuart Broad, who has taken David Warner’s wicket three times, and Chris Woakes will probably open the bowling, and maybe as soon as Smith comes in at number four, if he is passed fit to bat, Archer will resume his battle with Australia’s captain. Archer will have learned a lot from his first ever Test match and he will use that to try and rip through Australia’s batting in Leeds.

Joe Root to score a first innings 50 @ 11/8 (William Hill)

This has been a series to forget for many of the batsmen on show for both sides. Australian opener David Warner has scored a total of 18 runs, while his fellow opener Cameron Bancroft has managed 44 in four innings.

For England, Jason Roy has struggled to adapt from one day cricket to Test cricket as his 40 runs highlights. But it’s the struggles of England skipper Joe Root that has surprised many. Root started the series with an encouraging 57 at Edgbaston, but has followed that with disappointing knocks of 28, 14 and a duck in the second innings at Lord’s.

Playing in an Ashes Test at his home ground for the first time ever should bring the best out of the Yorkshireman. This Ashes series was supposed to be the next chapter in Root’s personal duel with Steve Smith.

In the last Ashes series Down Under, both players captained their sides and both batted at number four. Smith, who has moved to second in the ICC Test rankings, is no longer captain following his part in the sandpaper scandal that led to his year-long ban from the sport. While he has returned to number four in his side’s batting order,

Root has decided to move up to number three to help accommodate the inclusion of Joe Denly. This could be a reason why the runs have dried up for Root, but if anything is to get him bat among the runs, will be a return to Headingley where he will be greeted with the warmest of welcomes. If the first two Tests are anything to go by, Root should be prepared to make his way to the crease early as England’s struggles at the start of their innings continues.

The last time England had an opening partnership of 100 or more was in the fifth Test on their tour of India in 2016. Since then, the last 54 opening partnerships have averaged 22.7 runs with only eight partnerships getting over 50.

Root needs to lead by example and a half century will help keep the feel good factor within the England camp. And if he can turn it into a century, it will surely go a some way towards levelling the series.
