How Well Do You Know the Ashes?
Australia are looking to win back the Ashes urn that they lost to England back in the 2015 series and are hoping that playing at home will secure them their 33rd Ashes series win. A win for Australia will once again see them take the lead in overall Ashes wins, as both national teams have managed to win the series 32 times.

The Australia v England odds for a bet on cricket suggest that an Australia win is likely and that is after the surprising announcement of the Australia squad, which in many eyes was surprisingly weak. The weight of expectation on the Aussies could play into the hands of the England team, who will be playing without any pressure. Australian selectors will be hoping their selections pay off and that the players can handle the favourites tag.

Joe Root, who was player of the series for England back in 2015 has been promoted to captain after being vice-captain to Alastair Cook in the previous series. Cook has also been selected for the Ashes and will be hopeful of using his experience to retain the urn when they travel down under.

Australia meanwhile will be hoping to break down the mental strength of the English as they did back in 2013/14 series where they managed to secure a 5-0 whitewash. With the inexperienced squad England have selected, another whitewash is looking more likely than usual and England fans are already expecting the worst.

Although most people, including former international cricketers believe that Australia will storm to victory, Michael Vaughan, former England captain, believes that England do have a chance when the series kicks off on the 23rd November, but they need to employ the correct tactics in order to do so.

The 70th Ashes series is underway and here is a quiz to test your Ashes knowledge and see if you can knock them for six:
