What is the Ashes?
One of the longest-running rivalries in sport, the Ashes series is traditionally five Tests, hosted in turn by England and Australia at least once every two years.
Why is the Ashes called the Ashes?
The name of the Test series stems from when England lost to Australia for the first time on home soil at The Oval on August 29 1882. The Sporting Times carried a mock obituary of English cricket the following day which concluded that: "The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia".
When England next toured Australia a pair of bails were burned and the ashes put into the now famous urn. These days, the players of the side who wins the series are given a replica to celebrate with, with the original Ashes urn on display in the MCC museum at Lord's cricket ground in London.
