The 2019 Ashes series kicks up a gear tomorrow night as Australia look to go 2-0 up in the series against England at Lord’s.

The Aussies dug themselves out of one hell of a hole in the first Test at Edgbaston, going on to secure a memorable 251-run victory on the back of superb efforts by Steve Smith, Nathan Lyon, Matthew Wade and Pat Cummins.

England had the visitors were they wanted them on Day 1, and may well rue their inability to take the ascendancy when the series is said and done.

Can the home side level the series? Or will Smith and co. put on another clinic in London?

We got Roar cricket expert Glenn Mitchell on the Game of Codes podcast to preview the all-important second Test and make a call on who wins.

Listen to the discussion:

Australia are unlikely to make too many changes to a winning formula, although the pitch conditions could see one or two changes being made to the bowling attack.

Jofra Archer is set to replace the injured James Anderson for England, while Jack Leach may also come in at the expense of Moeen Ali.
