Recently, England has announced some major changes to their team for the third Ashes Test against Australia. This match will be commenced at 23:30 GMT on Saturday in Melbourne. This match is very important for the England team as they need to win it at all costs.
- Opener Rory Burns and middle-order batsman Ollie Pope are replaced by Zak Crawley and Jonny Bairstow.
- Fast bowler Mark Wood and spinner Jack Leach are chosen in place of Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes.
“We’re certainly not here to just take part and let 70,000 people enjoy another Australian victory,” he said.
“We have to fight back, we want to win the series and we want to win this Test match. We’ll take that ‘backs against the wall’ attitude because that’s what we need to have.
“I’m sure it will be a hostile environment but that’s to be embraced and enjoyed, everyone is excited to be here. We know we need to bring our best cricket because we haven’t done that so far and that’s disappointing.
“With the situation, we’re in, we need to get there fast.
“This is why you play the game because you want to be part of big occasions. It isn’t always going to be easy, but you need to turn up in tough situations and play well when it’s hard.”
