Ashes live updates: Hobart hosts historic fifth Test as both Australia and England look to end series on a high


England team: Haseeb Hameed dropped, no Jimmy Anderson

England have made changes, two of them enforced with Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow both out with broken digits.

Five changes in total.

Ben Stokes, side-strain and all, will play though. A risk? I doubt he’ll bowl.

Ollie Pope comes back in having kept as reserve wicketkeeper in Sydney.

Jimmy Anderson is left out, he’s been replaced by Ollie Robinson.

No spinner aside from Joe Root either, with Jack Leach dropped for Chris Woakes.

England team: Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Sam Billings (wk), Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood, Stuart Broad.
