The 2021-22 Ashes squad for England has been named while Australia’s will be announced closer to December, which is when the series is scheduled to begin.

2021-22 Ashes squad news

Australia

The Australian men’s team hasn’t played a Test match since India visited last summer, so there’ll be plenty of selection headaches for the panel to manage.

England

The visitors suffered a massive blow with news that Jofra Archer will miss the entire tour as he recovers from an elbow injury.

Archer was a circuit-breaker for the English attack in the last series and his pace bowling will be sorely missed. In good news for England all-rounder Ben Stokes has now been added to the squad as he recovers from a finger injury.

England squad:Joe Root (Captain), Ben Stokes, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Zak Crawley, Haseeb Hameed, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Craig Overton, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
