BT Sport is reuniting cricket legends Michael Vaughan and Ricky Ponting as part of its live and exclusive Ashes coverage.

The pair led their respective English and Australian sides in one of the most memorable Ashes series of recent years back in 2005.

They will be on hand to provide expert analysis throughout this winter's competition, alongside the likes of Adam Gilchrist, Geoffrey Boycott, Graeme Swann and Damien Fleming.

The first of the five Test matches commences on November 23rd in Brisbane, followed by the inaugural Ashes Day/Night Test match in Adelaide.

Ashes action then switches to the WACA in Perth, before England and Australia meet on Boxing Day in Melbourne. The series then rounds off with a fifth match in Sydney in the new year.

For those unable to follow every minute of the live coverage on BT Sport, a 90-minute highlights show will be broadcast each day.

Short clips of the action will also be freely available after 7pm every evening on the BT Sport website and app.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, commented: "This is an action-packed and exciting winter for BT Sport with a vast amount of live sport to show, including the biggest event in the cricket calendar, the Ashes.

"Our viewers will enjoy the analysis of both English and Australian cricket legends, all of whom have played in the Ashes and who will be following events as they unfold in Australia.”

Other highlights for cricket fans this winter include a five-match One-Day International Series between England and Australia in January.

This will be followed by the T20 Trans-Tasman Series, as well as the T20 Big Bash League and the Women’s Big Bash League.

BT Sport will also be showing the Women's Ashes Series, which commences on October 22nd, along with the first ever Women’s Day/Night Test and three Twenty20 matches.
