When is The Ashes 2023? Full schedule, start time, TV channel and live stream details for major Test cricket series
THE Ashes are finally back this summer and England are hoping to finally reclaim the urn they lost in 2017.
England were beaten 4-0 last time in the 2021/22 series but now they are back at home in June and July.
Joe Root’s time as captain came to an end after Ben Stokes was named his successor in April 2022.
Australia have been dominant at the Ashes since England last won a series in 2015.
If the Aussies win this summer they will hold the Ashes for a full decade until the next series in 2025, so it’s all at stake for England.
Ben Stokes will be looking to repeat his exploits from the 2019 World Championship and last year’s T20 World Championship.
But head coach Brendon McCullum needs more than Stokes in full swing if England are to retake the Ashes.
