Following the 405-run defeat at Lord's, England bounced back and won the third Test by eight wickets in less than three days. The latest victory may make England feel the second Test loss was a decade away.

It was a match where almost everything fell into place for the hosts. Steven Finn was the star player with the ball alongside James Anderson. Right-handed batsman Ian Bell managed to get back into form after scoring two half centuries.

England will miss James Anderson after the star bowler picked up an injury in the second innings at Edgbaston. Mark Wood could replace him and has a huge role to play in the fourth Test.

Australia need to avoid defeat in order to have any hope of retaining the Ashes. Skipper Michael Clarke's batting form has been a concern for the visitors. There could be a possibility of Adam Voges being promoted ahead of Clarke, while the latter could bat at No 5.

The Australian batsmen have disappointed as no player has managed to score a cumulative score of over 100 in both innings of the third Test. Another worrying factor would be the poor form of Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon.

Australia will be looking to take advantage of Anderson's absence and trouble English bowlers, whose lineup boasts the likes of Stuart Broad, Finn and Wood. It will be for the first time Broad will lead England's bowling attack without Anderson.
