The Ashes 2019

The Ashes starts at 11 am today at Edgbaston. Australia are the current holders but we hope that the England captain, Joe Root will lead our side to victory.

England have not lost a home Ashes series since 2001 and have not lost at Edgbaston to any side in 11 years so the statistics are in our favour.

The series, which is  the latest start to an Ashes in the UK due to the Cricket World Cup being played earlier will move on to Lord's, Headingley and Old Trafford before the urn is lifted at The Oval after a fifth Test that begins on 12 September.

Everyone at F Barnes wish Joe Root and the England team 'Good Luck'.
