The Ashes: cricket's oldest rivalry resumes

Aug 01, 2019 05:19 IST

One of the oldest rivalries in cricket 'The Ashes' resumes on Thursday, as Australia take on England in the 1st Test in Birmingham. Fresh from their maiden World Cup triumph, the 3 Lions will look to bring the urn back home. The Aussies may have won just 1 Test series since thumping England 4-0 in the last Ashes, but with the return of David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft, the Kangaroos are stronger than the last time. But history backs the hosts, as England haven't lost to Australia at home in almost 2 decades. With both sides evenly matched on paper, fasten your seat belts for a rollercoaster Ashes ride.
