Australia won the last meeting 4-0 with the hosts being comprehensively the better side throughout.

The Aussies also currently have the edge over England in the ICC world test rankings and boasts some quality players.

But Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum have created a very different England team these days and one that will be eager to hit back and reclaim the bragging rights.

2023 Ashes series: What’s been said?

England star Joe Root: “If you’re successful, it can set you up for life, not just the rest of your career but beyond it.

“It’s an opportunity to make history and have an incredible two months.

“There will be a lot more attention, noise and hype around it.

“There will be people that might not normally be interested in cricket very interested in cricket for five or six weeks.

“It’s the same game. As soon as the bowler lets go of it, it’s you against the ball.

“Just go and play as you’ve been playing for the last 12 months. And when it goes well, enjoy everything that comes with it.”
