The Ashes explained...

Cricket fans don't have too much longer to wait now for what is arguably one of the sport's highlight events: the Ashes.

What is Ashes?

The Ashes is a long-running Test cricket series played between Australia and England. It was first held in 1882-83, and both teams are currently tied for trophy wins. The last Ashes was in 2015 and England won.

Traditionally, the current trophy-holder hosts the next Ashes; however, the 2017-18 Ashes will be held in Australia.

When is Ashes 2017-18?

There are five matches or tests scheduled for the Ashes 2017-18. They are:

  • 23-27 November 2017 in Brisbane
  • 2-6 December 2017 in Adelaide
  • 14-18 December 2017 in Perth
  • 26-30 December 2017 in Melbourne
  • 4-8 January 2018 in Sydney

How can I watch the Ashes?

Although Sky Sports used to be the place to watch the Ashes, things got a bit murky in 2015 when BT Sport won a bid for the exclusive right to air live coverage of the 2017-18 Ashes. Sky Sports maintains the rights to the 2019 Ashes held in England, however, so cricket fans will need access to both of these channels to get their fix.
