The Ashes 2015 England vs Australia 3rd Test Toss Result & Teams

Australia have won the toss and they have elected to bat first

Cook: ‘We would have batted as well. It looks a really good wicket, might be a little bit in there this morning, hopefully we can put them under pressure early on. The pitch has been irrelevant in the first two games, the side that has played better cricket has won. Couple of changes, (Jonathan) Bairstow to bat at No. 5, Woody (Mark Wood) isn’t quite right with his ankle, so (Steven) Finn comes in for him. Belly (Ian Bell) has a great record here, batting at No. 3 gives him a bit more responsibility, hopefully he doesn’t get in there too early. The crowd here is fantastic, obviously we need to play well for them to get behind us.’

Clarke: ‘We are going to bat. They’ve got grass, that’s for sure. Same team for us. It was a real tough decision to leave Haddin out, but Nevill grabbed the opportunity with both hands at Lord’s. Chris Rogers is fully fit. We’ve got to come out and play well here.’
