After months of planning and a one-day series against New Zealand which whet the host’s appetite for cricket once more, England and Australia meet at Cardiff for the first Ashes Test on Wednesday. It’s the most anticipated Ashes since, well, the last one, and with the increased availability of online sport streaming, watching live Ashes cricket online has become a necessity, not a luxury.
What: Live Ashes streaming
When: Wednesday July 8, 10.30am
With England appointing, for the first time, an Australian coach – and showing renewed form and vigour in the preceding one-day series against New Zealand – anticipation for the 2015 Ashes is at its predictable zenith. Whether the new coach, Trevor Bayliss, can offer any inside tips on his countrymen remains to be seen; a quiet yet authoritative figure, he is likely to take a back seat and allow the captain, Alastair Cook, freedom to make his own decisions.
