As England gears up to take on its long-time rival Australia in the Ashes 2017-18, let's look at the key players on the English side.


#1 Alastair Cook

<p>
Cook will be aiming to set right his poor performance in England's last tour of Australia

The former England captain will be returning Down Under with no burden of captaincy and a mindset to make amends for his last horrendous tour of Australia (where he scored just 246 runs at an average of 24.6).

England's highest run-scorer in this format still has a very compact defense, as well as the right blend of technique, temperament, and experience to be a thorn in the side of the Australians.

He captained England for a long time, and will likely be seen giving valuable inputs to current captain Joe Root and the youngsters playing their first Ashes.
