England will play Australia Down Under in the historic five-match Ashes Test series. England would look to retain the urn as they won it last time when it was played in 2015 at home. However, England preparations have not been without controversies as their premier all-rounder Ben Stokes was involved in a bar brawl that saw him being ousted from the Ashes squad.
However, England have been a competitive team in Test cricket and would pose a tough challenge to the Aussies even though they will be without the services of their star all-rounder Ben Stokes.
However, Stokes did not let go the opportunity to gain some brownie points for his team by trolling the Australians ahead of the first Test in the Ashes series.
Stokes commented that England will win with or without him and Australia will be at little advantage thanks to his absence.
Other England players too joined in the fun and continued to troll Steve Smith and his men.
