Australia vs England Test 1: Match Preview and Prediction

The Ashes is the oldest prize in the cricket world. Both Australia and England will try their best to get their hands on that trophy. The first test match is crucial to both the team. If England wins the first test, they will have control over their rivals in their home. But if Australia wins, they will prove to be superior in their home ground. Gabba is a scoring ground, and the first one to bat will have the advantage. My prediction for the match is that Australia will take up the win. It will be hard-earned, but Australia is likely to win the first test. But ultimately, to know the result, we need to wait till the 12th of December. If it results in a draw, it will create pressure on both sides.
