England will aim to unsettle Australia further, when the teams meet for the fifth and final Test at The Oval. Having already clinched the Ashes in the fourth Test, courtesy a match-winning bowling performance from Stuart Broad, Ben Stokes and Mark Wood at Trent Bridge, there will be pride and uch more at stake in the upcoming contest. Michael Clarke, the captain of Australia, and Chris Rogers, the opening batsman, have officially announced they will retire after this Test. While Clarke will be ending an 11-year career, Rogers’ journey will come to a close after two years playing Tests for Australia, after a long and distinguished first-class career.

England won the first Test by 169 runs, helped by good seam bowling that had Australia’s batsmen succumbing. In a complete reversal in the next Test, at Lord’s, Australia were all over England, with ball and bat, for a 405-run win, before another one-sided game, this time by the home side, at Edgbaston, and the fourth one, at Trent Bridge. It is now clear that Australia’s problems have arisen due to an inability to counter quality seam bowling in helpful conditions by England’s seam bowlers, despite the absence of James Anderson due to injury.

At The Oval, Australia will have Mitchell Marsh drafted in the middle order, and Pat Cummins playing his first Test for a while, in place of an injured Josh Hazlewood. A change of fortunes seems highly unlikely, given the sequence of events and the uncertainty surrounding the Australian set-up, but a comeback under pressure cannot be ruled out, especially for a team like Australia.
