England might have strong hopes this Ashes against the Primary XI, but the recent warm up match against WA XI came up as wrecked experience. At Perth, the team faced an intensive batting crackdown off the XI team. There were only two players who played first class cricket in the West Australia XI team, but opener Josh Philippe hammered England bowlers, especially, Stuart Board. The latter is considered as one of the prime bets of England against Australia. West Australia scored 342 runs, by the end of the Day Two of the warm-up fixture.
While bowlers like Steven Finn and Moeen Ali could not control the inning, it was only Jimmy Anderson, who offered some solace. He took down 4 wickets for 27 runs. With such a play, Anderson will emerge as a spearhead in Australian pitches. The 35 years old player is currently through an impressive form. In the summer season, the player took down a total of 39 wickets in the longest format. His average was 14.10. Anderson is picked to strengthen England’s pace attack. His last inroad in the match against WA XI emerged as an iota of his long experience in contrast to that of young players’ in opposition. England was 125 for 1 before Josh Phillippe lost his wickets.
Earlier in the match, England 349 for 6 wickets runs batting for 91 overs. Mark Stoneman and James Vince scored 80 plus runs in the inning, while David Malan and Gary Balance struck half centuries before retiring out from the match. Jimmy Anderson has nicked 500 Test wickets. In previous Ashes tournaments, the bowler could not show up a good play, however, Australian condition seem to turn into his favor this time. Anderson said that Australian pitches has different length to that of England’s. The bowler stated they found the right condition by the afternoon as the pitch help reverse-swings.
