Anderson keeps place as England unchanged for final Ashes test against Australia


LONDON (AP) — England has announced an unchanged team to play Australia in the fifth and final Ashes test at the Oval. England record wicket-taker James Anderson retains his place in the side despite a disappointing series so far while pacer Mark Wood and all-rounder Chris Woakes have both been passed fit. The fifth test starts Thursday in London. Australia takes a 2-1 lead into the match and has already retained the urn. Ben Stokes’ England is looking to level the series after the final-day washout in the drawn fourth test at Old Trafford. The tourists have not won outright an Ashes series in England since 2001. Australia captain Pat Cummins says his side is determined to end the 22-year wait.
