Australia arrived in England in 2019 as holders of the Ashes – and they left with the little urn still in their possession after a thrilling, roller-coaster series was drawn 2-2. England’s extraordinary one-wicket victory at Headingley gave home fans hope, but Australia ensured that they could not lose the series by winning at Old Trafford the following week.

Previous Winner Cricket Player Of The Series

Player of the Series

Steve Smith

Steve Smith was, quite simply, the difference between the two sides in the 2019 Ashes. If he had not been in the Australian team, England would have won the series. Time after time, his amazing batting exploits held his side together and denied England a chance of victory.

Previous Winner Cricket Player Of The Series

Most wickets

Pat Cummins

Pat Cummins delivered the ideal combination for an opening bowler – pace and consistency. He repeatedly destroyed England’s hopes of a good start to an innings, before returning later to bowl out the lower order. Cummins finished with an impressive 29 wickets over the five Tests.

The Ashes: Most popular markets

It’s a simple question. Which side will win the Ashes? Don't forget you can also bet on the series ending level – as the teams did in England in 2019.

However, history is against England Down Under. In eight visits to Australia since 1986-87, they have won the Ashes on only one occasion, the extraordinarily emphatic triumph of 2010-11. On their two subsequent visits, England have been thumped by an overall score of 9-0 so it will take an almighty feat to turn around a trend like that.

Nevertheless, England captain Joe Root is arguably the best batsman in the world, an experienced bowling attack and a good balance between youth and experience. There is a good chance that they upset the odds in the England Australia Ashes betting.

Australia look very strong, though. The national team has recovered from the upset of the ball-tampering affair of 2018 and the line-up looks as solid as ever. This will be a superb series between two very good teams.

In-play betting on the Ashes

Just because the first ball has been bowled, the betting does not have to stop. Ashes betting sites will still be open for business if you want a wager on the action and test cricket is a sport that lends itself beautifully to in-play betting.

There is plenty of time to assess the way the balance of power in a match is shifting and to bet accordingly. For instance, if Steve Smith is out for a duck (a score of zero) in his first innings, you will still be able to back him to score the most runs in the match or even the series.
