ADRIAN DENNIS / AFP

England will be hoping to avoid a series defeat against Australia when the final Ashes Test starts at The Oval on Thursday.

Joe Root's side trail the visitors 2-1 and have already failed to win back the famous urn from their rivals.

Jason Roy and Craig Overton have both been dropped from the team, with Chris Woakes and Sam Curran replacing them.

Meanwhile, Australia have recalled Mitchell Marsh at the expense of vice-captain Travis Head.

The match starts at 2:00 pm UAE time.
