After losing the series inside a dozen days, England will play for pride in Sydney in the penultimate Test of the Ashes 2021-22 during the Pink Day Test at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground.
England has been abysmal, to say the least. Their batting unfounded, bowling touching a new low and barring Joe Root and to an extent, Dawid Malan, none of them have been able to make any strides. Covid came on the way of their plans as most of their support staff are down with the contagion ahead of the New Year Test in Sydney. In such a situation, England have to fight it out to end the series on a high and put the horrors of 2021 behind in order to rack up a successful finish in the course of the next two Tests.
Marnus Labuschagne’s first innings dominance is a stuff of dreams, to be honest. Since his reincarnation as a Test player in 2019, he has plundered runs everywhere but in the first innings, he has a story of his own. Currently, he averages 98.18 in the first match innings and 78.95 in the first team innings. Those are some incredible numbers. In the last three years, his averages read 64.94, 67.16, and 65.75 respectively while his home average reads 70.00. In the ongoing Ashes, his scores read 74, 0*, 103, 54, and 1. In 7 Ashes Tests, he has a total of 582 runs at an average of 52.90 which not only talks about his insane batting form but also augurs well for the Aussies who have used it to their advantage to crush England’s dreams. Even though it doesn’t really make any difference, here is a fact - in the fourth match of the series, Labuschagne has averaged 49.80, hence England would do well to dismiss him up front, or else he will punish them to no end. You can also be benefitted from Labuschagne’s form by betting on him through our affiliate partner Parimatch who is providing a very interesting market for the same.
Notwithstanding his travails in the 2019 series, Warner has a special liking for the Englishmen in Test cricket. He has shown that mettle in the ongoing Ashes, scoring the third-most runs in the series after Joe Root and Travis Head. He averages 41.22 against England in Tests but in Australia, his batting average shoots through the roof as he ponders 63.03 runs per dismissal. The New South Wales batter has a stark record at home and away conditions, averaging 63.03 at home and 33.17 away. His scores in the ongoing series read something like this - 38, 95, 13, and 94. These are really impactful numbers, further bolstered by the fact that Warner has an average of 56.59 in the first match innings. In the first team innings, his average is a fine average of 51.83 and that indicates the fact that even though his opening partner Marcus Harris went through a bad run of form, Warner has the potential to make the stride. Then what are you waiting for? Go ahead and bet big on Parimatch for Warner to score over 32.5 runs.
Joe Root is in the form of his life. In 2021, he amassed 1708 runs - the second-most Test runs for any batter in a year and that just tells why it is such a mindless bet to go for. In 2021, he scored at an average of 61.00 in 15 matches. As skipper, the Yorkshire batter has scored 4937 runs, averaging 47.47, with 26 half-centuries and 12 centuries, in which half the Test centuries came this year. So far in his career, as skipper, the Yorkshire batter has scored 4937 runs, averaging 47.47, with 26 half-centuries and 12 centuries, in which half the Test centuries came this year. Most of the dominance has come in the first team innings, in which Root averages 56.33 as compared to his second innings average of 41.88. In 2021 alone, his first-innings average stands at 51.14. In the ongoing Ashes, with 253 runs at an average of 42.16, he is the highest run-scorer as well, hence there is a lot of hope already riding on him. Hence, we are pretty confident that Root will score a lot of runs for Team England, and all of us punters can ride the wave on him to start the year on a financial high.
