Bazball did the trick for England, but it was the rain that defeated them in the last Test. Now, that the coveted urn is out of the question for the English Lions, they can elevate their Bazball techniques and come into the last Test match with all guns blazing.
Meanwhile, the Kangaroos is still struggling with their top order. With Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja out of form, the Aussies are having a tough time with the bat; however, in the last Test, Marnus Labushagne stepped up to the challenge and delivered a world-class knock of 102 before heading back to the pavilion.
With a 2-1 lead in the series, Australia now stands on the verge of a historic victory in England, a feat not achieved since 2001.
