The Ashes

Today marks 100 days until the Ashes begin in Australia. As the countdown commences, both sides will be looking to answer the considerable questions that their line-ups face. Most imminently, England have two Test matches to win their home series against India, their last opportunity to establish a stable top order and better define certain players' roles before they make the trip down under. Starting on December 8, this is one of the most anticipated series in some time, with England desperate to reverse their recent misery on away Ashes tours and get their hands back on the urn after Australia took it home having drawn in 2019.
