After suffering defeats in the first three Tests of the ongoing Ashes 2021-22 series, England fought hard and showed a lot more resistance in the fourth Test. Valuable contributions from Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, and Zack Crawley with the bat and Stuart Broad, Lack Leach with the ball helped England draw the fourth Test of the series.

England would look to gain confidence from that and be keen to end the tour with a win in the final Test. England are likely to make a few changes to their playing XI. We have compiled our predicted playing XI of the England Cricket Team for the final Test of the Ashes 2021-22 series. Here’s a look at that.

Zack Crawley played a wonderful 77-run attacking knock off 100 deliveries in his last innings of the fourth Test against Australia. His knock was laced with as many as 13 fours. His partner Haseeb Hameed, however, endured low scores in the fourth Test. He made 6 and 9 in two innings and England might think of replacing him with Rory Burns for the final Test match.
