AUS vs ENG The Ashes 2021-22 4th Test Preview:

Australia has successfully retained the Ashes Urn by hunting down England in all of the first three games. They have gained an unassailable lead and will now eye an Ashes whitewash.

After winning the first two games by 9 wickets and 275 runs respectively, they won the third game by an even bigger margin of an innings and 14 runs. The performance of England has gone from bad to worse over the three games and only a complete rejuvenation can help them now.

In the third Test at Melbourne, Australia won the toss and opted to bowl first. England was bundled out for 185, with Joe Root the only one to cross the 50-run mark. Bairstow contributed 35 while Stokes added 25 runs. Skipper Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon picked 3 wickets each. 

Australia piled up 267 in their first innings, with the help of great contributions from their openers and a handy batting by the tail. Marcus Harris struck 76 runs while David Warner fetched a scintillating 38 off 42 balls. James Anderson was the pick of the bowlers once again, he picked 4 wickets while Robinson and Wood hunted 2 scalps each.

Australia had a lead of 82 runs after the first innings, but what followed proved to be one of the biggest lows in England cricket. They were hunted down for a mere 68 in the second innings, none of their batters managed to cross even the 30-run mark. The destruction was caused by the debutant Scott Boland who wrecked the English batting with his 6 wickets for 7 runs. Mitchell Starc was sensational as well, he added 3 wickets to his tally.

The weather prediction for the third Test is a major concern, with at least a 70% chance of precipitation on all 5 days of the game.
