Ashes 2019: England switch seam attack with Overton in for Woakes

Ashes 2019: England switch seam attack with Overton in for Woakes”

The only other change that England made is Jason Roy swapping places with Joe Denly at the top of the order after the England opener failed to deliver against Australia with the bat.

He has also struggled to mount a big score, though the Kent batsman came up with a valuable half-century at Headingley to help England snatch victory after the hosts were bowled out for 67 in their first innings.

"Joe's played some good cricket throughout the summer, he's got himself in, so it's a great opportunity for him to go and get us off to a good start".

Overton's first wicket in Test cricket was Australia star batsman Steve Smith - who will be returning to Ashes action this match after missing England's thrilling one-wicket win in the third Test at Headingley with concussion.

"I can confirm that, it's all true", Denly told BBC Sport. In a recent conversation, Root has asked Denly to open in the forthcoming Manchester Test. "Obviously Jason is going to bat four and that's great for English cricket", said the 33-year-old Denly. With Jason Roy in the team, I think we're a better team - that's for sure.

'With Jason we are a better team and with him coming in at four, hopefully with the new ball worn off and myself and Rory Burns doing our job at the top, it allows him to come in and play his way.

"It's a great opportunity for him to make it his own and we have seen him play enough worldwide cricket to know what he can do when he gets himself in, so hopefully batting lower down allows him to do that".

Ben Stokes' brilliant knock helped England to secure an impossible-looking victory in the last Test at Leeds. The Ashes will be won by the team that can play as a unit over the.

"It's all a bit of a blur.it's all about the last hour", he said.

"Obviously it was a proud moment but as any top-order batter, you come off after getting out wanting more runs".

Hales was left out of England's World Cup squad after he was suspended for what his spokesperson described as an "off-field incident", while he has not been selected for a Test since 2016.
