  • England, Australia name squads for final Ashes Test

The visitors won the first Test by 251 runs but after the drawn second, England leveled the series with a stunning turnaround in the third Test.

Root quietly and wearily answered every question put to him at the Oval without ever inspiring the confidence to believe England really can dig deep in Thursday's final Test and earn the victory that would see this Ashes series drawn rather than end in crushing defeat.

Australia have recalled all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for batsman Travis Head in order to ease the burden on their pace attack, which could be unchanged from Old Trafford.

Now he must somehow lift himself for what is still a crucially important Test against an Australian side who should really be exhausted themselves after bowling for most of Sunday to win the fourth match and then partying slightly classlessly at Old Trafford afterwards.

"It's bitterly disappointing to not have got the Ashes back, but we haven't lost anything yet", he said.

"In terms of personnel, things might change, as they have done for a while", he said.

Jason Roy became the first casualty of Root's new broom when ditched to accommodate Ben Stokes who can play here as a batsman only (at four) on account of a shoulder injury. Of course, we are disappointed not to win the Ashes back but we are fully focused to finish the series 2-2.

The Yorkshireman was phlegmatic about the effect of captaincy on his form after a poor series by his standards, saying batting had been tough for both sides. "I'll keep trying to work on that and try to improve my game".

But he said he knew the direction in which he wanted to take the team and was already looking forward to trying to win the Ashes in Australia in 2021/22. But Trevor has transformed how we look at the white-ball game and been part of some very special Test wins. "We have spoken a lot about it". "We came here to win the Ashes not just retain them".

"Last week's result at Old Trafford was brilliant and we played very well, but all the guys are aware that this Test is bigger than that one".

Australia coach Justin Langer, revelling in having the world's top-ranked batsman and bowler at his disposal, is urging the other batsmen to step up in the match starting on Thursday, even though he admits they lack experience.

England XI: Rory Burns, Joe Denly, Joe Root (capt), Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach.

Steve Smith's glorious Ashes has raised calls from some fans and pundits for his restoration to the Australia captaincy but incumbent Tim Paine has no plans to hand over the reins quietly.
