But they won’t have captain Tim Paine, who resigned after a sex scandal.

However, the UK will not have the support of the famous Barmy Army as Australia has delayed lifting the entry ban due to Covid concerns.

Joe Root will be looking to lead his country to their first Ashes win Down Under since 2010/11.
