- Pink ball test match will be played in Adelaide from Thursday
- Australia lead 1-0 in the 5-match series
The England team has lost to Australia in the first Test match of the Ashes series 2021. The English team, led by Joe Root, is currently preparing for the second Test. The second Test match of the series will be played in Adelaide from 16 December. This will be a Day Night Test match which will be played with Pink Ball (AUS v ENG Pink Ball Test).
Before the Pink Ball Test, Joe Root was seen sweating profusely in the nets on Tuesday. During the practice session, Root was in trouble when a bouncer from Ben Stokes hit his helmet.
In fact, it happened that in an attempt to hit the short pitch ball of all-rounder Stokes, Root missed and the ball went straight to his helmet. However, after this, the reaction given by Root showed that he did not suffer any serious injuries.
Even after this, Root continued to bat. Root was the last player to leave the Nets. Earlier, Stokes was injured during the first Test match. Stokes could not do anything special in the Test match played in Brisbane. He bowled 12 overs in that Test match.
Stokes almost certain to play in Pink Ball Test
However, the manner in which Stokes was bowling to Root in the Adelaide Test (AUS v ENG Adelaide Test) indicated that he would be available for the pink ball Test. England’s batsmen will once again be tested in the Pink Ball Test match. The confidence of the Australian bowler is currently in seventh heaven, which is led by fast bowler captain Pat Cummins.
Australia beat England by 9 wickets in first test
In the first innings of the first Test match, the visiting England team was bundled out for 147 runs while in the second innings they scored 297. England had lost the first Test by 9 wickets.
