The story of the Ashes began back in 1882 when England were beaten for the first time on home soil by Australia. The defeat shocked the sporting world and prompted a newspaper obituary with the title 'death of English cricket', the newspaper said English cricket would be burnt down and the ashes sent to Australia. When England next toured Australia those ashes became real - a pair of bails were burned and the ashes put into the now famous urn.
Cricket's oldest rivalry is back with the 70th Ashes series. Australia and England both stand at 32 wins each plus 5 draws. Who will take the title to put themselves in the lead?
