Ashes 2019: Injured Stone ruled out of Lord's Test

Ashes 2019: Injured Stone ruled out of Lord's Test

England's pace depth will be tested in this series, during which they'll be unable to call on injured 2015 Ashes victor Mark Wood. "Absolutely he is. But everybody does at times during their global career and Bairstow has shown he is a very talented keeper-batsman and should be backed now ahead of this week's second Test".

Australia batting star Smith made 144 and 142 in a 251-run win for the visitors in the opener at Edgbaston during a superb return to Test cricket following a 12-month ban for his role in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa - an incident that also cost him the captaincy.

He said Lord s brought back happy memories of England s victory over New Zealand in a thrilling World Cup final in July during which Archer was entrusted with bowling the Super Over which clinched the trophy.

Jos Buttler believes Jofra Archer's "X factor" can re-energise England's Ashes challenge, with the paceman in line to make a much-anticipated Test debut at Lord's this week. In the first innings, he bagged three wickets.

Always a tough job, with leg-before-wicket decisions notoriously tricky, umpire Joel Wilson from Trinidad tied the Test match record for the most decisions overturned by the Decision Review System - eight. "You just review it. #Fact".

There was a lot of chatter around Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood not playing the first Test. "Yes of course we'll do our homework but we've all faced him", he said.

As the camera pushes into the control room, Witherspoon says, "I think they want to know the person behind the facade". Aniston, Witherspoon and Carrell all appeared at Apple's big announcement event back in March.

We've got myself and Steve Waugh here, as well as the likes of Brad Haddin and Graeme Hick, and we can speak with the players about situations they may find themselves in and how to deal with those situations.

Meanwhile, off-spinner Moeen has been dropped, with left-armer Jack Leach recalled into the squad ahead of Wednesday's start at Lord's.

'Devastating and disgusting are the best words to describe my feelings as I watched the other England bowlers toil in the first Test.

"I ll try and work miracles but I can only give my best". This is the first time since 2001 that Australia won a match at Edgbaston in any format of the game.

Burns, who scored a century in the first innings, did not last long this time round. With the likelihood of playing his maiden Test, Archer is looking forward to carve his name in the ever so renowned Lord's Honours Board. "It was one of the challenges for James Pattinson actually, he set himself to play back in the Australian team, he set himself to play Ashes cricket". "I think we've got the confidence that we need", he said.
