Predicting England’s bowling combination for Ashes 2023

England Test Team is in good form right now. Under the management of Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes, the team is firing on all cylinders. However, the toughest test for the squad will be in the upcoming Ashes. Australia is also in good form and since it is a high-profile rivalry, there will be pressure on England to do well. The bowling unit must do well at home if England has to come out on top. Here, we predict England’s bowling combination for Ashes 2023.

England’s bowling combination for Ashes 2023

James Anderson will lead the pace attack, yet again. It might be the last time that the legend might be playing in the Ashes. With him, England would be desperate to pair Jofra Archer. However, that purely depends on the player’s fitness. Ollie Robinson will be a constant in this setup. The player has been in fine form and will add value to this attack. His batting skills will also be useful. While Jack Leach is likely to be the main spinner, skipper Ben Stokes will be the all-rounder to support this attack. Joe Root will also be an option in the spin department since there are too many left-handers in the opposition.

Australia’s likely bowling attack in the Playing XI for Ashes 2023:

  • James Anderson
  • Jofra Archer
  • Ollie Robinson
  • Jack Leach
  • Ben Stokes

Backups: Stuart Broad, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes.

Workload management a likely scenario

The depth in England’s pace attack is immense. Hence, it is likely that the management will look to manage the workload of the players.

Of the lot, Stuart Broad might even be a part of the first Test. Chris Woakes will serve as the option when James Anderson might be rested. If Jofra Archer is not fit, Mark Wood might feature in the playing XI. Even if Jofra is available, he could sit out a few games to rest with Wood playing.
