It is a must-win match for <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/England ">England </a>if they are to keep the urn, whereas Australia need only one win to regain The Ashes. <p></p> <p></p>The first two Ashes Test have seen a lot of words exchanged between both sides. The English batsman <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ben-duckett/">Ben Duckett</a> was suspended from playing the tour match between England and Cricket Australia XI before the Perth Test: he reportedly poured beer over his vice-captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/james-anderson/">James Anderson</a> s head in a bar in Perth. Commenting on the same, Australia s wicketkeeper, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Tim-Paine">Tim Paine</a> told the reports that "it s irrelevant". <p></p> <p></p>"I'm sure someone will bring it up at some stage," Paine said in a press conference. <p></p> <p></p>"But what's happening in their camp off the field has no effect on the way we're going to go about our cricket. I haven't paid a hell of a lot of attention to it... it's a bit irrelevant." <p></p> <p></p>Wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow, who had headbutted Australian opener Cameron Bancroft in a bar, was verbally targeted by the Australian players in the first Test. Bairstow, however, stated there was more sledging in the Adelaide Test. <p></p> <p></p>England s former captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/bob-willis/">Bob Willis</a> stated the sledging as particularly personal . <p></p> <p></p><b> I haven t heard something that crossed the line </b> <p></p> <p></p><b></b>"There's been nothing that I've heard that has been too untoward or anything that has been particularly nasty. It's just been tough Test match cricket," Paine said. <p></p> <p></p>"It's been played in pretty good spirit from what I've seen and heard. Both teams have - despite what it may look like - a huge amount of respect for each other. <p></p> <p></p>"I was (surprised by Bairstow's take). I certainly haven't heard anything that has crossed the line," he added.
