In the true spirit of Bazball, it’s time to charge down the wicket and make an outlandish attempt to hit the ball out of the park in predicting how the Ashes will pan out.

As previously noted, this is shaping up as one of the most unpredictable Ashes series in living memory.

In the blue corner is England, a team that was just 18 months ago rightly branded the worst side to tour Australia and they were lucky to escape a series whitewash by the skin of their tailenders’ teeth after Sydney’s rain intervened.

But they have somehow reinvigorated themselves to a point where they have won 11 of their past 13 Tests to enter the return bout as an even-money bet to regain the urn they haven’t laid hands on since 2017.

And in the baggy green corner is Pat Cummins newly minted world Test champions who have been the superior five-day side for the past two years.
