England to make changes following Australia drubbing?

England will make changes to the top of their batting lineup for the third Ashes Test against Australia, following their heavy defeat at Lord's.

England will reportedly make changes to the top of their batting order for the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston, following their thrashing by Australia at Lord's.

The Baggy Greens wrapped up a 405-run victory over the hosts in the second Test by bowling England out for just 103 in their second innings.

According to The Telegraph, the England selectors will meet on Tuesday morning and are poised to react to the defeat at Lord's by making changes to the top of the batting order.

Gary Ballance is thought to be at risk of losing his place in the side, having made just one score of more than 50 in his last 16 innings for both England and Yorkshire.

It has been suggested that Yorkshire teammate Jonny Bairstow could be brought in following good form for his county of late, which included a century against Worcestershire on Sunday.

The Ashes series is level at 1-1 ahead of the third Test, which begins on July 29.
