Ashes Test Series: Nasser Hussain has highlighted the key issues that the team must address before the Ashes series begins. The battle between England’s bowling attack and David Warner was addressed by Hussain. They’d be important in deciding which side the momentum went. Hussain had a difficult time throughout the 2019 Ashes series. Stuart Broad posed a special threat to him. In addition, in the five-match series, only 95 runs were scored at an average of 9.5. It is vital for England to be aggressive, according to Hussain. And then there’s the T20 World Cup’s newly named player of the tournament.
“The battle between England’s bowlers and David Warner will be absolutely vital to the outcome of this Ashes. Stuart Broad has been all over him like a rash in Test cricket in England,” Nasser Hussain said.
Ashes Test Series: “They must attack Warner, unlike in the last away Ashes when England put out sweepers to him at the start of his innings. If Warner gets Australia off to a flyer and then Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne come in with runs on the board, England will be chasing the game. They have to avoid that at all costs,” Hussain added.
Furthermore, David Warner has also been absent from the Test series. Among his teammates, he has a majority of them. Due to injuries, Warner was unable to play in the first two Tests against India. Also, the rest of the series did not go well. Nasser Hussain discussed how England may win a series by exploiting Australia’s flaws. For the first time in a decade, we are on Australian ground. After India’s 31-match unbeaten run came to an end, he felt Australia’s stronghold, The Gabba, could be invaded again.
Ashes Test Series: “Australia does have vulnerabilities. Warner is trying to resurrect his Test career while Marcus Harris and Travis Head are starting again. England may be a little light in some areas but so are Australia and, as India proved in the last Test played in Brisbane, the Gabba is no longer a fortress. England can win if they do the basics well and remain flexible but, most importantly, they have to get big first-innings runs,” Nasser Hussain said.
