Ashes 2021-22: The 1st Test of the series in Brisbane might be called off


The most-awaited clash between England and Australia in the Ashes Test series is scheduled to commence from 8th December, Wednesday. Considering the recent reports from other sources, the first Test between these two giants which is going to be held in Brisbane might be called off due to bad weather conditions.

Moreover, both the teams practised tight ahead of the most-anticipated event but due to adverse changes in weather the first four days. Having a look at Queensland, they are currently engaged in a four-day match in the Sheffield Shield bud due to overcast conditions, the team managed to play only 29 overs throughout the three days of play.

The intra-squad warm-up match has also been cancelled after receiving heavy storms at Brisbane. The first Test match between Australia and England in the Ashes is scheduled to play at the Gabba, the overcast conditions might ruin the entire match and the preparations of both the teams.

However, the Joe Root-led side has already cancelled their sessions and heavy rainfall is expected to interrupt during the game. England got their star all-rounder Ben Stokes back in the squad ahead of the Ashes series.

If the first Test match had been called off, the star all-rounder might face difficulties in the second Test against the mighty Aussies. The latter got injured during the first phase of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League while representing Rajasthan Royals.

After that, he took a break from professional cricket to concentrate on his finger injury and mental health. Moreover, England previously won a match at Brisbane was way back in 1986 when they thrashed the hosts with the help of Ian Botham's fabulous knock of 138.

After that, the former skipper Alastair Cook helped his side to draw a match in the last decade with his unbeaten 235 against the Aussies. As of now, their leading pacer Pat Cummins has been named as the skipper for the series with Steve Smith who has been named as his deputy. The fans are eager to watch the most-anticipated clash between the arch-rivals in the Ashes series.
