Cricket Australia has unveiled their new practise jersey ahead of the much-awaited Ashes scheduled to begin at the Gabba in Brisbane from 23rd November, Thursday. Australia is the favourites to regain the Ashes especially with home factor playing a big part. They are training hard to reclaim the urn and give a repeat of the performances in 2013 where they crushed England by a 5-0 margin. It was Mitchell Johnson who wrecked havoc and almost single-handedly won the series for the Aussies with 37 scalps behind his name in 5 matches.

The new practise jersey was looking comfortable which will keep the players in good stead ahead of the all-important series. All the players posed for photographs with their new jerseys and were sporting a smile on their face. Skipper Steve Smith, Peter Handscomb, Jackson Bird, Cameron Bancroft, Shaun Marsh and Tim Paine were the ones present at the launch of the jersey. It is a combination of dark grey and a light shade of blue with the Cricket Australia logo and the Qantas Sponsor printed on it.

Meanwhile, the series is excited to be a gruelling one, and it is unlikely that the Aussies will run away with the series as they did in 2013-14. It was Mitchell Johnson who tormented the England batting line-up with some sensational piece of bowling, and the England batsmen might be in for something similar in the upcoming series too.

Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins who is all set to play their 1st Test match together can consistently clock 90m/hr and is expected to test the English batsmen with some barrage of short deliveries. On the other hand, England will be a relatively happier unit after all-rounder Moeen Ali, and fast bowler Jake Ball recovered from the injuries suffered after reaching Down Under. The availability of Ben Stokes might be decided by this week, and even Aussie coach Darren Lehmann conceded that they are prepared to face Stokes at some point in the series.
