Changes likely as Aussies fight to hold on to Ashes Urn

AUSTRALIA is determined to hold on to the Ashes Urn, despite a set-back in the best-of-five cricket series against England.

The hosts have celebrated a convincing eight-wicket victory in the third test at Edgbaston, to take a 2-1 series lead.

England easily reached the 121 runs needed following Australia’s lacklustre second-innings total of 265.


The visitors will now head to Nottingham to prepare for the must-win fourth test, which starts on Thursday (August 6).

Selectors are expected to make a few changes to the batting line-up. While Adam Voges could be dropped do to a poor batting average.
