Cricket 2013: Ashes Test England v Australia

Mark Nicholas has all the highlights as England play Australia in the Investec Ashes series.

The Ashes begin in Nottingham as England look to keep possession of that priceless little urn. Nottingham hosts the first of the series’ five Tests. The others are played at Lord’s, Old Trafford, the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground in Chester-le- Street and the Oval. These Tests are followed by two T20 matches and five one-day internationals before the tourists head home in September.

Commentary and analysis comes from England’s Ashes-winning ex-captain Michael Vaughan, the forthright former Yorkshire and England batsman Geoffrey Boycott, the former Middlesex bowler Simon Hughes and former Australian cricketer Damien Martyn.
