The most highly anticipated cricket series in the world is here as England and Australia go head-to-head in the first Ashes series of 2013.
Trent Bridge in Nottingham plays host for the first Test match between these two great sides, from which so much is expected over the course of the next six weeks.
The Three Lions have been tipped as favourites having won three of the last four series’ between the sides and previous two on home soil.
However, the Australians should be written off at England’s peril as despite many calling this team the worst to tour the British Isles for a number of years, the same was said in 1989 when a similarly unfancied Aussie side triumphed 4-0.
This time around captain Michael Clarke does have his work cut out though, with Australia having lost the last two Ashes competitions home and away and also coming off the back of a 4-0 whitewash in their last Test tour in India.
Clarke himself has struggled with a back injury that has plagued his career, but will be ready for the first five-day match at Nottingham.
Chris Rogers and Shane Watson are expected to open in what will only be the 35-year-old Rogers’ second ever Test and the pair head a struggling Aussie top order.
England in contrary have looked good with the bat, with skipper Alastair Cook, young talent Joe Root and Jonathan Trott all playing in a rich vein of form.
The home side will also welcome back Kevin Pietersen from a knee injury which will boost confidence and spinner Graeme Swann plays in his first Test match since the early part of 2013.
