England has announced their team for the fourth Test of The Ashes, with James Anderson replacing Ollie Robinson.

After being rested for the previous Test, James Anderson has been recalled for the upcoming match on his home ground. Robinson, on the other hand, experienced a back spasm during the Headingley Test, which limited his bowling to 11 overs in the first innings and prevented him from bowling in the second innings.

James Anderson, at the age of 40, holds the record for the highest number of Test wickets for England and has been honored with having one end of the Old Trafford ground named after him.

Moeen Ali will once again take on the role of batting at No. 3, allowing Harry Brook to retain his position at No. 5, where he made a significant contribution of 75 runs in the third Test to help England secure the victory.

Ali’s move up the batting order came about when he approached head coach Brendon McCullum with the request.

“And that moment when Mo approached Baz [McCullum] and expressed his desire for the opportunity embodies everything that our team stands for.”

Despite trailing Australia 2-1 in the gripping series, England managed to secure a victory in the third Test at Headingley, keeping their hopes alive to win the Ashes.

On Monday morning rainfall at Old Trafford, the players who were warming up for practice had to leave the field and may have to continue their sessions indoors.

The rain is likely to disrupt their two practice days, potentially affecting their preparation for the upcoming Test.

This situation could pose a challenge for England, as they cannot afford to draw this Test. Winning the match is crucial for them to have a chance of winning the series. If the series ends in a draw, Australia, being the holders, would retain the Ashes.
Today, James Anderson is replacing Ollie Robinson after the announcement.
