Previous Ashes series

Australia enjoyed a comprehensive 4-0 victory over England in the 2017-18 Ashes series on home soil, making it three out of the past four series played in Australia that the visitors have failed to win a Test.


The ball-tampering scandal that took place in South Africa just two months after the series subsequently raised some questions over Australia’s dominance, however.
