The Ashes 2019 Preview: All you need to know

The Ashes 2019

The Ashes 2019 is an upcoming series of Test Cricket matches to be played between England and Australia. The Venues for upcoming ashes are Edgbaston, Lord’s, Headingley, Old Trafford and The Oval.

Why is it called The Ashes?

The term begins from The Sporting Life paper, which in 1882 distributed an ironical eulogy of English cricket after Australia had beaten England at The Oval – the first time the tourists won a game on English soil.

The piece expressed that “the body [of English cricket] will be incinerated and the ashes taken to Australia.”

The accompanying Test series was in this manner named by the media as an endeavor to win the ‘ashes’ of cricket back, with then-England cricket skipper Ivo Bligh vowing to “regain those ashes”.

The name has stuck for well over a century.

Why Ashes Trophy is so small?

The Ashes urn is a small urn made of terracotta and about six inches, accepted to contain the ashes of a burnt cricket bail. It was presented to Ivo Bligh, the skipper of the England cricket team, as a personal gift after an exhibition match facilitated at Rupertswood manor in Sunbury during the 1882–83 visit in Australia.

After his demise the urn was presented to the Marylebone Cricket Club, which has it in plain view at Lord’s cricket ground in London. The urn has come to be unequivocally connected with ‘The Ashes’, the prize for which England and Australia are said to contend in Test series between the two nations.

Who won The Ashes in 2018?

Australia are current holders of The Ashes, having won the series 4-0.

Which team has won The Ashes the most occasions?

For a series that has continued for over 130 years, the general count is surprisingly close.

Altogether there have been 70 series. Australia – 33, England – 32, and five have been drawn.
