England v Australia Preview And Betting Tips– Ashes 4th Test

The 3<sup>rd</sup> Ashes Test delivered one of the most remarkable run-chases in history after Ben Stokes brought England back from the dead to chase down 359 and give England a one-wicket win. With the series locked at one-a-piece Old Trafford plays host to the 4<sup>th</sup> Test with more drama expected. Form Labs break down the action with their betting preview and tips for the game while we have all the betting and in-play odds for the Test.





Stokes Heroics

Six weeks after his immense display in the World Cup final, Ben Stokes was at it again at Headingley in the third Test.

He hit 135 not out, although the most impressive part of that innings was how he did it, hitting 11 fours and eight sixes to chase down the 359 required, while they still needed 73 when he was joined by England’s last man Jack Leach.



Series Locked At 1-1

That result leaves the urn very much up for grabs with the scores tied at 1-1, but some bad news for England is that James Anderson will be taking no further part following his injury in the first Test at Edgebaston after just four overs.

That sees Somerset’s Craig Overton come into the 13-man squad for this Old Trafford Test, while the hosts are likely to shuffle their batting order too, with the misfiring Jason Roy swapping to number four as Joe Denly takes on the opening duties.

Smith Returns For Australia

Australia will be welcoming back Steve Smith, who currently leads the way in the scoring department for the whole series by 51 runs, having played one fewer Test than any other player.

However, in their recent tour match against Derby, the former captain scored just 23 before being caught on the boundary and so he could well still be suffering from his concussion from the second Ashes Test.



England To Win

Showers are forecasted for the opening three days but nothing too substantial to make the draw worth a punt.

That should enable England to use the momentum from their comeback a fortnight ago and having won nine of 11 unbeaten Tests at Old Trafford since the start of 2002, they’ll be confident of securing victory.

In fact, momentum played its part in both 1981 and 2005, when dramatic victories saw England come from behind to lift the urn and we’re expecting a repeat of that this year.

Joe Root Top Batsman

A man we fully expect to live up to his billing this week is Joe Root. The captain has scored 524 runs from his seven innings at Old Trafford in Test matches, averaging 105.

Moreover, he played a big part in that monumental victory in Leeds with 77 from 205 balls in the second innings, whilst he also hit a solid 88 in his only outing here during the recent World Cup and looks great value to be the hosts’ top scorer.
