The Ashes, 2023 5 Tests . Jun 16 – Jul 31
The upcoming 2023 Ashes series, officially known as the LV= Insurance Ashes Series, is set to be played between England and Australia in June and July. The series will consist of Test cricket matches and will be hosted at five venues: Edgbaston, Lord’s, Headingley, Old Trafford, and The Oval. Australia holds the Ashes title after winning the previous series 4-0. This series will be part of the 2023-2025 ICC World Test Championship.
The 2023 Ashes series will be the 73rd overall and the 37th in England. Notably, this will be the first time in the history of the Ashes, spanning 139 years, that no Test match will be held in August during an Ashes series hosted by England. The series is scheduled to run from June 16th to July 31st, 2023. England will host the series, marking the 37th time they have hosted the Ashes.
In the previous Ashes series held in 2019, both teams won two matches each, and one match ended in a draw, resulting in a tied series. Therefore, Australia, having won the 2017 Ashes, is the defending champion. The first match of the 2023 Ashes series will take place from June 16th to 20th at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. The second test will be held at Lord’s in London. The third test will be played at Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds from July 6th to 10th. Old Trafford Cricket Ground will host the fourth test in Manchester from July 19th to 23rd. The final match of the Ashes series will be held at The Oval in London from July 27th to 31st.
Pat Cummins will captain the Australian side in the Ashes 2023 series, while England has yet to announce its final squad and captain. However, Ben Stokes is likely to assume the captaincy for the English team under the coaching of Brendon McCullum. Australia holds the top position in the ICC Test team rankings, while England sits in third place. The rivalry between Australia and England in test cricket is among the oldest and has always provided great entertainment for cricket fans.
