Who will win England vs Australia 3rd Test, Ashes 2019?
The 2019 Ashes series continues at Headingley, Leeds, for the third of five tests. Australia continue to lead 1-0 after winning the first match, before a draw at Lord’s. The third place takes place between August 22 and August 26, with the live action taking place from 11:00 every day.
Steve Smith’s fine batting form had put the Aussies in control of this series until Jofra Archer’s hostile bowling led to him suffering concussion after being struck in the second test. If he misses out, this could be England’s chance to level the series.
The English will have taken plenty of heart from the second test, which suffered as a result of the rain. They had Australia six down in the final session when the match ended in a draw. With ICC World Test Championship points up for grabs, as well as the Ashes of course, this is a key match for the hosts.

ENG vs AUS Toss Prediction
Australia have won the toss twice so far so, on his home ground, Joe Root is due to win this time out. The England captain could elect to field first and get at the Aussies early on.
ENG vs AUS Weather Report
The forecast for Leeds is vastly better than that which beset the second test at Lord’s. Temperatures should be in the 20s, with Friday and Saturday particularly good according to the forecast. The chance of rain is low.
ENG vs AUS Pitch Condition
A balanced Headingley wicket can benefit both batsmen and bowlers, with the overhead conditions usually a bigger factor. On a warm, sunny week as has been forecast, it could be something for the batsmen – but the pitch is unlikely to change dramatically over the five days.
