AUS vs ENG Dream11 Preview:
Australia captain Tim Paine has made it crystal clear that this 5th and the final will be one of the biggest Test Matches for his team. Last time, when Australia won Ashes on England soil was back in 2001, when Steve Waugh’s side won 4-1 to extend Australia’s dominance over their oldest rivals to 12 years.
India would not let this lead go in vain and they have a chance to lift up the trophy almost after two decades. Visitors earned a 2-1 series advantage after demolished England by 185 runs in the 4th Test.
Meanwhile, England would try every possible way to win this Test match to once again kill the dreams of Aussies of winning the Ashes in England after S Waugh.
The final test game is set to be played at Kennington Oval, London around 3:30 PM in the noon.

AUS vs ENG Team News:
Australia Team News:
- Australia bounced back aggressively after losing the third Test against England in Headingley.
- Australia have been seen switching a lot in the bowling department. So there are chances that James Pattinson or possibly Peter Siddle come back into the side for either Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazelwood.
- The opening partnership has been an issue for Australian as David Warner’s struggles continue while Marcus Harris needs to push himself more.
- If changes were to be made then Usman Khawaja or Cameron Bancroft can come back in the playing11.
- Off-spinner Nathan Lyon is an injury concern, having split his spinning finger, but the coach assured that he will be fine.
- U Khawaja can come along David Warner to open for Australia in the 5th Test.
England Team News:
- Defeat at Old Trafford would have shattered the entire English dressing room.
- England has named the same 13 players for this final match at The Oval but they have a fitness doubt over Ben Stokes.
- Stokes went off the field after injuring his right shoulder in the field on day four. Well if he fails to get totally fit, he will not be asked to bowl, but he will play as a batsman.
- Keeping Stokes in the team will lead in leaving behind Buttler or Jason Roy who had been found keeping the average of 13 and 16 respectively.
- There are chances that bowling allrounder Sam Curran or Chris Woakes could come in place of these above-mentioned batsmen.
- Rory Burns and J Denly will open the innings for England.
- J Archer, S Broad, and Jack Leach will hold the bowling department.
