England has named an unchanged 14-member squad for the fifth and final Ashes Test, scheduled to begin at The Oval in London on Thursday.
Australia won the first Tests by two wickets and 43 runs, respectively before England clinched the third one in Leeds by three wickets. Australia was staring at an innings-defeat after trailing by 61 runs with five wickets remaining when the rain led to the entire last day of the fourth Test in Manchester being washed out, which meant Pat Cummins’ team retained the Ashes.
However, Australia is looking to win the Test series in England for the first time since 2001.
