Ashes Cricket - Live Online



Ashes Cricket - Live On The Internet

Welcome to the Ashes cricket series. The series takes place between two cricketing nations, England and Australia. It all began way back when in Melbourne on the 15th of March 1877, Australia won the game by 45 runs. However it wasn't until 1882, 5 years later that the Ashes were born as we know them today. The term Ashes was first used after England lost to Australia - for the first time on home soil - at The Oval on 29th August 1882. A day later, the Sporting Times carried a mock obituary to English cricket which concluded that "The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia".

The Ashes is in fact international cricket's oldest and most celebrated rivalry. It is currently played roughly every 2 years. The Ashes are held by the country which last won the series and to regain them the other country must win more Test matches in a series than the country that currently holds the Ashes. If a series is drawn then the country holding the Ashes keeps them.

Television networks worldwide are known to offer hundreds of millions of dollars in their attempts to secure the rights to an Ashes cricket series broadcast. Viewer audiences worldwide number in the hundreds of millions when these matches are broadcast on both television and cable. From the toss of the coin for the beginning of a match, to the post match player interviews, viewers are glued to the set and make sure not one moment of cricket history passes them by. Many of these fans can even recount the vaguest of facts surrounding an Ashes series, even better than the experts associated with the sport of cricket itself.

The Ashes series creates a huge amount of buzz online. You can click here to see what live Ashes cricket is currently showing online.
