What Is The Ashes?
The Ashes is Test series that sees Australia and England lock horns over five Test matches. Each country takes it in turns in hosting the Ashes. The 2021-22 series will take place Down Under with Australia the holders of the Ashes after they retained their title courtesy of a 2-2 draw in England back in 2019. The term ‘Ashes’ was first coined in terms of Test cricket back in 1882 after England lost on home soil to Australia for the first time at The Oval. A newspaper claimed that English cricket had died, and the body would be cremated into Ashes and taken to Australia. That led to England captain Ivo Bligh saying that they would ‘recover those Ashes’ on the tour in 1882-83 – from then on, the series has been named The Ashes. Although the Ashes is the name of the series, the Urn in which the ashes are portrayed to be in is not the actual official trophy. Replica urns are held aloft, but the winning team officially receives a Waterford Crystal Trophy. The original Urn is currently on display at Lord’s and visitors can witness it on the official tour.
Who Has Won The Most Series?
Australia have won the most Test matches against England. At the time of writing, 335 Test matches between the two nations have been played. The Aussies have won 136, England have 108 victories to their name with 91 Test matches ending in a draw. There have been 71 Ashes series since the first one in 1882-83. Australia have won 33 series, England have won 32 with six ending in draws – including the most recent series in England.
