Australia has won 34 test series out of 72 played so far while England has won 32 series and 6 series ended as a draw.
Before the Ashes, England played Ireland in a one-off, four-day Test at Lord’s from June 1-4. On the other hand, Australia defeated India in the WTC final 2023 by 209 runs on June 11 which will further boost their confidence ahead of the 5-test series against the English side.
In the Ashes 2021-22, Australia defeated England by a big margin of 4-0 while the Ashes 2019 played in England was a drawn affair by 2-2. Hence, the Ben Stokes-led side will be quite keen to show their potential and defeat their arch-rivals Australia after 8 years as they last won the marquee trophy in the year 2015 by a margin of 3-2.
England will rely on their ‘Bazball’ approach and will expect their aggressive batters to consistently score big runs in the 5-match series. On the other hand, Australia’s strength is their world-class bowling lineup that consists the likes of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starch, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon as they’ll look to rattle down the English lineup throughout the Ashes 2023.
