England and Australia are all set to renew their traditional cricket rivalry when the two sides face off in the first of the five-match Ashes contest at the Gabba on Thursday. Led by new captains in Joe Root and Steven Smith, both sides present largely youthful and uncertain batting orders but potent bowling line-ups.
While Australia can boast of the pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins alongside the skilful and durable off-spinner Nathan Lyon, England have their two greatest ever wicket-takers in James Anderson and Stuart Broad, but for now at least there is no Ben Stokes, the best performer in an otherwise horrid 2013-14 series. England, meanwhile will be aware that history is very much against them in their quest to retain the famous urn following their 3-2 win in 2015.
