In this article, the topic is England v Australia Ashes Series head to head. Here, we have tried to mention all the Ashes Series that have been played so far in a table wise format, the year in which it was played, the winner and the result of the series.

The build-up to the Ashes Test Series begins almost a year in advance. It has been the same ahead of the 2017 series. This celebrated rivalry is currently played biennially, alternately in England and Australia. There is a pattern to both countries touring each other as England visit Australia during the end of the year to New Year, playing the Boxing Day Test match while the Aussies return every second series in Britain in months of July to September.

The story of the Ashes Series is 134 years old, to be precise. The trophy, which is currently housed in the Memorial Gallery at Lord’s, London, consists of a small terracotta urn supposedly containing the ashes of a bail burnt by some women in Sydney on January 30, 1883. The urn was then presented to the Honourable Ivo Bligh after he had led his English team to a 2-1 victory against Billy Murdoch’s team, making England the first team to win the “Ashes Trophy”.

Interestingly, the Ashes was conceived the previous year as a result of a mock obituary notice published in The Sporting Times after Australia had beaten England in England for the first time (on August 29, 1882). A note at the foot of this obituary announced that “the body will be cremated and the ashes were taken by Australia”.

England captain, Ivo Bligh, who retained the urn and its embroidered velvet bag, till his death in 1927, bequeathed it to the MCC. Since then it has remained at the museum at Lord’s, even when held by Australia.

A degree in Mechanical Engineering was of no good as his mind was always focused on artistic and creative things. He likes to read and observe a lot. Thus he turned his attention towards writing and telling others what he actually feels through his words. A true dreamer and a diehard sports and music enthusiast and believe me, it would be a very good idea if you explore his mind.
