The 2019 Ashes Series will commence on August 1. The first of five will be played at Edgbaston.

Lord’s, Headingley, Old Trafford and The Oval will host the four remaining Tests of the series, in that order.

Although the Seven Network has taken over the majority of broadcast rights for Australian cricket, the 2019 Ashes will be broadcast by Nine.

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.
