The latest prodigy of the England Cricket team didn’t take much longer to shine in the international arena. The Barbadian fast bowler played a crucial role in guiding England to their maiden ODI World Cup title, with 20 wickets, and is expected to do well in the longest format as well.

The right-handed fast bowler has been a consistent performer in the longest format. Hazlewood is a great exploiter of the new ball and the swinging pitches in England are just tailor-made for him.
The number one ranked test bowler might well be the greatest threat for the English batting line up. The 26-year-old fast bowler regularly bowls at over 145 KMPH and is in sublime form at the moment. The bowler also played an instrumental part in guiding Australia to the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and will be one to watch out for in Ashes 2019.
The highest-wicket taker of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will also want to replicate a similar performance in the whites as well. The left-arm pacer is a seasoned campaigner and has staggering numbers at the international level. Starc also played a crucial role in the last Ashes series, which was played down under and is expected to castle the English batting this time too.

Anderson is the fourth-highest wicket-taker in test matches and will want to increase his tally in the upcoming series. The 36-year-old is a force to reckon with in test matches in England, which the Australian team will be wary of.
These were some bowlers who can pose a great threat to the batting line ups. England will go in the series with high confidence after the World Cup 2019 win, but the Australian squad is also one to watch out for. Thus, it is not easy to predict the favourites of the series and only time will tell as to who conquers the clash of the titans.
