The Ashes 2023

The Ashes 2023 is one series that the cricketing community is anticipating. The series is filled with high-intensity cricket. What sets this series apart is the grit with which the players play. The return of Jofra Archer will add more spice to the Ashes 2023. He last played a test match in 2021 in India. There will be banter, there will be sledges; but most importantly, there will be great cricket on display. The likes of Steve Smith, Joe Root, Jimmy Anderson, and Mitchell Starc will be the key entertainers in the Ashes 2023. Here is a quick preview of the series:

The Australian team is sitting soundly on top of the WTC table. After the embarrassment at the hands of a young Indian team, they have come back with redemption. The team is on a roll. They have beaten every opposition that has visited them ever since. The Ashes of 2021 is one such example where the English team got blasted. The players have shown immense character. Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, and Scott Boland are new names but still managed to give big performances. Here is a look at the top run-getters: 

Player Name Runs Average Best 
Usman Khawaja 1275 79.3 195* 
Marnus Labuschagne 1265 57.2 204 
Steve Smith  1107 55.5 200* 
Travis Head 973 54.4 175

The English team had a dreadful start to the WTC 2023 campaign. The start was so horrible that they had to sack their coach. Brendon McCullum had to step in and ever since the team is on the rise. They have adopted the “Bazzball” strategy in the red-ball format as well. With that being said, they can get the big runs in less time. They batted at 7.2 runs an over against Pakistan in the 1st Test match at the Pindi Cricket Stadium and won the game eventually. Players like Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, and Ben Stokes help to adapt to this policy. They will do the same in the Ashes 2023.
