Ashes 2021 Predictions: Can England’s Batters Tackle Pat Cummins Led Australian Bowling Attack?

Ashes 2021 Predictions Graphic

Ashes 2021 Predictions are here!

The first Ashes Test is already out of the way and Australia brushed England aside by 9 wickets at the Gabba. So how did it go?

The Ashes First Test – Review in One Sentence

Broad & Anderson were left out as Joe Root decided to bat first, under-fire Starc bowled Rory Burns first ball of the Ashes, debut captain Cummins got a 5-fer, England collapsed for 147, Australia replied with 425 via Mr. Fortunate David Warner (94) & fluent Labuschagne (74), comeback kid Stokes’ no-balls were not-called (until they were when he got a wicket), Robinson got 2 in 2, and Travis made sure that the match turned on its Head, he also got 15% fined for audible cussing, batter of the year Root (89) & Malan (82) dared to dream with a 172-run partnership before things crashed down the next morning in typical English collapse manner, Lyon ended his 400th wicket wait with 4/91, England were bundled for 297, Australia casually made 20/1, England were docked WTC points on overrate, Hobart got the 5th Test (as the second D/N match of the Ashes), oh and Gabba suffered an embarrassing power blackout.

Whew! That should all but cover it.

As most of us expected, Australia’s streak is back on the Gabba (after the Rishabh Pant thing that happened last year). Can England come back from this defeat? Do the 2 day-night matches bring England back into the running? Will Broad-Anderson impact the final result?

Ashes 2021 Prediction In Words

  1. Ansh Sharma

“I think Aussies will win it. I know it’s not going to be easy for them but I have a lot of confidence in the pace trio of Starc, Cummins, and Hazlewood especially in home conditions.”

– Sharma

2. Jimmy Knox

“I agree with a likely 2-1 Auz win. However I have a gut feeling that this could end in a draw maybe 2-2. Joe Root being England’s key man with the stick and Wood being important with the ball. Also Leach stepping up.”

– Knox

3. Avinash

“With Jimmy not playing first game, Aussies fancy a win the first game so! 2-1 for Australia.”

– Avinash

4. Pratyush

“Every good thing comes to an end.”

– Pratyush on possibly Starc’s last Ashes

5. Jonny

“Already reassessed after Anderson news. Not happy! Depends so much on Brisbane. Get a draw and we could keep it to 2-1, lose then 4-0 is on. Runs/MVP – Root all the way. So far ahead of the rest. Woakes in the wickets. Broken Dream? Fear for Rory burns technique against bounce..”

– Jonny on the importance of first Test for England
