Aussies hunt first Ashes series win in England since 2001

England have dropped Jason Roy for the fifth and final Ashes Test against Australia.

The home side go into Thursday's fifth and final match 2-1 down, meaning they can not place the urn in their trophy cabinet alongside the one-day World Cup, which they won for the first time in July.

Craig Overton will also miss out at the Oval with Chris Woakes and Sam Curran coming into the Three Lions side.

Extra bowling cover certainly makes sense for England considering Ben Stokes will play as a specialist batsman after picking up a shoulder injury in the last Test, the efficacy of his bowling in doubt.

England's failure has led to questions over Root's position as captain, particularly given his inconsistent batting throughout the series.

The sick also gained new recognition this year at the World Trade Center site, where a memorial glade was dedicated this spring. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum invited family members of the victims of the 2001 attack as well as a 1993 attack.

The one-day specialist was the latest attempt to solve England's opening woes but the gamble has not paid off and he has managed only 110 runs in eight innings with a top score of 31 at Old Trafford when he dropped down the order.

England will now be looking to avoid a first series loss against Australia at home in Tests since 2001. "We came here to win the Ashes, not just to retain them".

"I know what direction I want to take this team forward".

'We've not lost anything yet.

However, Bayliss does not expect a change of captain following the Ashes despite calls for Root to step down to allow him to focus on his batting.

As he does in the NBA, Gobert has protected the paint, controlled the glass and found efficient ways to score for France . In the fourth, Team USA squandered a seven-point lead and went scoreless over six consecutive possessions at one point.

"Little things like that no-ball (that cost Jack Leach the wicket of Smith in Manchester) could have made a big difference but you can't look at ifs and buts, you got to look forward at this next Test". I'll keep trying to work on that and try to improve my game'.

"You've still got to perform whether you're young or you're a veteran, but we also have to recognise they are young batsmen and it's a really tough school and hopefully they'll come through at some point".

England have again kept faith with the same group of players for the fifth Test at The Oval although Bayliss says changes were considered.

"Last week's result was brilliant and we played very well but all the guys are fully aware that this Test match is bigger than that one".

Peter Siddle, who played the first two tests, has been retained in a 12-man squad and could be recalled in place of the world's top-ranked bowler Cummins or an in-form Hazlewood.
