Australia defeated England to win the historic Ashes title for the 34th time, the ‘war’ started in 1882

The third match between Australia and England in Melbourne was completed in just 3 days. Australia won the series by taking a 3-0 lead by defeating England. After losing the Ashes series, England will have to perform well in the last two games to save their credibility. However, looking at the kind of performance England have done so far, it seems quite difficult. The history of the Ashes series is very old. Today we will tell you their history and the statistics of both teams so far.

So far 71 series have been played between Australia and England. This is the 72nd series to be held today. Australia have won this series for the 34th time by winning the first three games. Apart from this, England has established itself in this historical series 32 times. While 6 series have been draws. Speaking of the last series, Australia has been a brilliant performer and has been ahead of the game by breaking England’s record.

The story of the Ashes begins in 1882, when England was defeated by Australia at the Oval for the first time. This incident was quite surprising to everyone, because at that time England was considered the king of cricket. When England lost to Australia at home, a newspaper ran a satire titled “The Death of English Cricket at the Oval.” The newspaper wrote that English cricket will be burned and the ashes will be shipped to Australia.

When England toured Australia, a pair of gills were burned to ashes and placed in an urn. Even today, the winning team receives the same trophy. While the original Kailash is preserved in the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) museum at Lord’s Cricket Ground after more than 100 years. In this way, this series became very important and became famous under the name Ashes.
