Can England win back the Ashes?

July 29th, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release, Sport

Australia arrive in England as holders of the Ashes, but they have not won on British soil for nearly a quarter of a century.

This is the 71st edition of the biggest prize in cricket and one of the biggest rivalries in all sport. Victory for England would see them level Australia’s 33 wins overall.

Joe Root captained England during their defeat in Australia in 2017 but he is being backed to succeed with England odds-on at 5/6 to win and he is 9/4 favourite to be top scorer.

First Test
1–5 August 2019
Edgbaston, Birmingham

Second Test
14–18 August 2019
Lord’s, London

Third Test
22–26 August 2019
Headingley, Leeds

Fourth Test
4–8 September 2019
Old Trafford, Manchester

Fifth Test
12–16 September 2019
The Oval, London

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “English cricket is buzzing after the World Cup triumph, and who can back them against them? Bookmakers are reporting an awful lot of money coming in for them – hence them being odds-on.”
