Here are three exciting things that are coming up in the upcoming second season of “The Test.”

Published:

After a successful first season, “The Test” returns to the web on Friday, January 13.

The first season showed the Australian men’s cricket team’s rise from the ashes with dressing room access. After the ball tampering scandal, Justin Langer became head coach and sought cricketing respect.

The trailer suggests the second season will cover Australia’s Ashes run, Pakistan tour, and more. With so much happening in that period and the lead-up, it promises to be another intriguing series with repeat value.

Let’s look at three highlights of Season 2 of “The Test” before its OTT premiere.

1 England’s 4-0 Ashes loss to Australia

The Ashes is the most esteemed Test series. The urn’s history and decades-old traditions make it special to Australian and English players.

Mitchell Starc’s first ball castling Rory Burns around his legs set the tone for Australia’s 4-0 series win. Season 2 of “The Test” will reveal behind-the-scenes events and Pat Cummins’ first assignment as captain.

Australia’s resilience will be key after two COVID-19 outbreaks in the series. As will Scott Boland, the Boxing Day Test hero.

2 Test captain Tim Paine’s resignation

After sending explicit text messages to a female co-worker in 2017, Tim Paine resigned as Australia’s captain two weeks before the 2021-22 Ashes series.

The cricketing world was shocked, and Paine retired, skipping the Ashes. Cummins captained and Alex Carey played.

Season 2 of “The Test” will start with this as the backdrop. Viewers should discuss how the Australian team handled this news and Cummins’ takeover.

3 Justin Langer’s departure.

Justin Langer’s departure as head coach will be a highlight of Season 2 of ‘The Test’. He led Australia’s comeback in the first season.

Before Langer resigned after the Ashes, rumours circulated of a rift with the Australian team. Months later, he called the news source “cowards” before reversing his position. Cummins claimed his team had no cowards.

That didn’t look good, and this may be the series’ most anticipated aspect.

‘The Test’ season 2 premieres on Amazon Prime Video on January 13.
