Ashes 2019 : England v Australia

Post by 1964white » Thu Aug 01, 2019 4:46 am

England's bid to regain the Ashes from Australia begins with the first Test at Edgbaston on Thursday

The home side won the World Cup just over two weeks ago, but were beaten 4-0 on their tour down under in 2017-18.

England have not lost a home Ashes series since 2001 and have not lost at Edgbaston to any side in 11 years.

They have opted against handing a debut to pace bowler Jofra Archer, instead preferring Chris Woakes on his home ground.

Australia are yet to confirm their team, but batsmen Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are in line to play Test cricket for the first time since being banned for their part in the ball-tampering scandal on the tour of South Africa in 2018.

The series, the latest start to an Ashes in the UK, will move on to Lord's, Headingley and Old Trafford before the urn is lifted at The Oval after a fifth Test that begins on 12 September.

Not as much post Ashes trash talk as usual, probably due to the WC, but this series gets top billing in my household.
I will have my portable DAB tuned to Test Match Special from early today.

Has anyone got tickets for any if the tests?

Rumour has it that Hector is dressing up as a Bishop and will be leading beer snake constructor on the western terrace when the fun comes to Headingley in a few weeks.

England fans giving some real stick to Warner as he leaves the pitch as Broad nails him

Sandpaper being waved in the stands as the cheating Aussies depart

Sounds like a football ground at Edgbaston

Geoffrey Botycott returns to TMS after his quadruple heart bypass less than a month ago.

Jonathan Agnew is happy too :-D

Some nice chirps from Aggers to Boycott today.

Boycott "I've just had a heart scan"
Aggers "Did they do find it then?"

Boycott " Edgbadton, I loved batting here"
Aggers" Flat pitch was it?"

154 /8 at tea but Smithy still out there.

Can the Aussies get this up to 180 and give them something to defend?

Smithy passes 100 and the Aussies are back in the game.

Smith is a class batsman

Poor bowling from England

Stokes has had a mare, Moheen costly too.

Why has Anderson only bowled four overs
