When the Ashes were last on, the Barmy Army was victorious. On home soil, the English were able to overcome the memory of the 5-0 drubbing they received during the previous outing, to win a much tighter series 3-2. It was a tough loss to take on the road for the Australian players and fans alike, but what it means is, that come 2017/18 we’ll be back with a vengeance!
Playing in Australia this time, the Aussies will be considered favourites but will face stiff competition from an English squad that has seen a marked improvement in form over the last 12 months. It will also provide a great test for Steve Smith, the recently installed captain of the Australian cricket team. While he has been involved in a number of successful and unsuccessful Ashes teams, it will be the first time Smith takes the field in charge. He’ll be relying heavily on his number 2 and opening batsman, David Warner – who has been experiencing a purple patch in his form for the last 12-18 months. We’d love to be able to go back to England for the 2019 Ashes series looking to defend rather than having to fight to gain them back.
