Headingley is set to host the third ENG vs AUS Test match from 6-10 July. Having lost the first two Test matches, this is a must-try Test match for England. Australia leads the series 2-0 and looks to get to 3-0.
England skipper Ben Stokes returns to a place that is remembered for his great stroke of 135 in the 2019 Ashes series. His 155 was for nothing, unlike the stroke he contested four years ago. The lefty needs to step up in one of his favorite spots.
