The Ashes 2019

Steve Smith lead Australia to a fighting 2-2 to retain the urn after winning the previous series in 2017-18. It was the first time Australia retained the urn on foreign soil after 2001.

  • 1st Test Edgbaston – Australia won by 251 runs
  • 2nd Test Lord’s – Match Drawn
  • 3rd Test Headingley – England won by 1 wicket
  • 4th Test Old Trafford – Australia won by 185 runs
  • 5th Test The Oval – England won by 135 runs

Why is it called the Ashes?

This is going to be the 72nd Ashes series – which first originated in 1882.

The name of the cricket series was chosen after Australia’s first victory on English land in 1882. The British media publication at the time stated English cricket had died at the Oval and “the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia“. Australia and England alternate between hosting the series and being the tourists.
