Australia live cricket preview

Now that Australia can claim to have won every major tournament in cricket thanks to their performances at the T20 World Cup, focus now switches to the longest format of the game.

England are in town for what is arguably the biggest series in test cricket – The Ashes. Five tests will be played out from December 8th, 2021 through to January 18th 2022. Australia have walked away with the Urn after the previous two meeting between the two, and England will be hoping to get their first victory on Australian soil since 2011.

The upcoming Ashes has been packed with controversy for all the wrong reasons in the lead-up. The ECB (English Cricket Board) is currently trying to deal with an internal racism scandal, whilst Australia has lost their captain, Tim Paine after it was reported he sent inappropriate text messages to a colleague.

When the teams take to the field at The Gabba for the first test in December, it will be nice to just focus on cricket. Although both sides are licking their wounds after what has been a difficult couple of months for the image of the game, let’s hope that those that played no part in these controversies can remind us why we all love the sport and its values.
