Australia will look to put some authority on a highly successful Ashes campaign when they head to The Oval for the fifth Test against England. Join The Roar for live scores and ball-by-ball coverage from 8pm (AEST).

The tourists have already retained the urn, pulling off a famous victory at Manchester on the back of a Steve Smith double hundred and strong second innings bowling effort to stop England from hanging on for what would have been a tough draw.

The form of Smith and victory in Manchester, where they turned things around after the soul-crushing loss in Headingley, means Australia lead the Ashes 2-1 after four Tests and England can no longer win the series.

However, the hosts can still draw the series, and the Aussies won’t want to give them that level of satisfaction, so there is still plenty riding on this game.

While Smith has been the difference between the two sides and could continue to be so heading to The Oval, both sides have made changes in an attempt to get their batting line-ups firing.

It’s been a series dominated by the bowlers, and The Oval is a ground which could well continue that trend, with typically good conditions for bowlers.

England have decided to drop Jason Roy from their side, with Ben Stokes unable to bowl and go for more depth in both bowling and batting, bringing in Chris Woakes and Sam Curran, with Craig Overton the other player dropped after he had replaced Woakes in Manchester.

Australia, while still yet to settle on their attack, have one confirmed change, with Mitchell Marsh replacing Travis Head.

It’s thought Pat Cummins may be rested for the Test, with Peter Siddle likely to be drafted back in.


As it always tends to do at The Oval, the toss will hold vital importance for the game, and whichever spinner has the opportunity to bowl their side to victory in the fourth innings will hold a huge advantage.

The other bit of good news ahead of this Test is that the weather forecast is finally a good one, so one way or another, we should have a result by the time play finishes up on Monday in London.
