The apex of test cricket has arrived once again as England and Australia play for the Ashes urn over the next month-and-a-half. England has the opportunity to tie the series at home with its 33rd win since the contest started in 1882.
Australia is coming off of a 4-0 win in its last meeting with England, but the European side hasn’t lost at home since 2001. England is looking to use the momentum from its World Cup victory in July, which was capped off with a 143-run win in a one-off test against Ireland.

Steve Smith and David Warner, the true perpetrators of the scandal, suited up for Australia at the World Cup after their year-long bans, but this will be Bancroft’s first action back.
