The Ashes 3rd Test Tips & Betting Preview

And so we go to Headingley…

Following Australia clung on to secure an essential draw pulsating, exciting Lords Test match, England need to reset once more as they journey up to Leeds, in which the people understand a victory will secure the Ashes.
The simple fact that one poor England day over the next 3 Tests might cost them the series hasnt been lost on anybody, so Joe Root would take it one match at a time, and that I believe that the Three Lions defeat the Aussies at Headingley to measure the set.
Following the devastating Edgbaston defeat, we saw that a critical momentum change of course coming courtesy of Jofra Archer — in Lords. Since the introduction of Kevin Pietersen in 2005 have seen a player make this kind of immediate effect on the England side, and his terrifying bout of bowling to rough the imperious Steve Smith felt like a watershed moment for this particular England Test side up. For the very first time in a long time, England have a weapon that will terrify the batsmen.
According CricViz, the Lords pitch we found last week was the second-slowest because 2005 to, yet Headingley has been the fastest pitch of England within the time period. Together with the fear factor enclosing the express pace of Jofra, he can do some damage to the fragile Aussie batting line-up — aided Chris Woakes and by the Stuart Broad, naturally.
Australia have Pat Cummins inside their side who will act as their own enforcer-in-chief, therefore its down to which team handles the barrage top with the bat. With the openers hapless Steve Smith a concussion uncertainty and Englands middle order at the runs match of Jonny Bairstow all, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, this looks a storm for a comeback victory.
Englands recent consequences at Headingley have not been fantastic –winning just three of their previous six–but as the Australians revealed in Birmingham, it is a string.
My tip for Australias top first innings batsman to be Marnus Labuschagne.
The most Labuschagne, who hit a half-century at Smiths area to save the game at Lords, will come in Together with Steve Smith ruled from this Test match.
The 25-year-old was scoring runs for pleasure and appeared unfazed by Archers thunderbolts after being hit in the helmet as soon as he came in — which is the sign of a gutsy, well-organised participant.
David Warner (Stuart Broads rabbit ) cant get a jog, Cameron Bancroft is futile, Usman Khawaja is defendant in England, Matthew Wade is threatening nevertheless inconsistent, and Tim Paine (who has as numerous First Class centuries since Stuart Broad) is not a Test batsman.
Me impressed on Sunday, so he gets my nod, although I believe Travis Head is an outstanding player with the potential to score for the Aussies.
Ive got a nice long price to complete up: Jofra Archer to be Man of the Match in a huge 12/1.
Simply put, Archer is a match-winner, and 12/1 to get a bowler as catastrophic as Archer to acquire MOTM on this a quick pitch (against a side who are without Steve Smith) is just too big.
