The Ashes quiz: How much do you know about England and Australia's great rivalry?


The latest edition of cricket's greatest rivalry is upon us as The Ashes get underway in Australia.

The land down-under has not proven to be a happy hunting ground for the English lads over the course of history and the 2021 vintage promises to be no different.

However, with the Australian camp caught up in the turmoil of Tim Paine-gate, the English will sniff a chance to get off to a good start when they clash at the GABBA in Brisbane.

With talismanic all-rounder Ben Stokes making a timely return to the squad, confidence will be slowly creeping up as England prepare to face down Australia's lightning quicks on favourable decks.

There can be no questioning now that The Ashes is the beating heart of modern-day Test cricket.

After hundreds of years of fierce battles, the rivalry between the two great cricketing bastions has become woven into the very fabric of the game.

England will be desperate to wrestle the iconic prize out of the grip of an Australian side who will be in no mood for handing out favours on their home patch.

There is nothing that captures the imagination of Test-loving fans the way The Ashes does, and you can be sure there is fevered debate raging in pubs and bars across the breadth of both nations.
