Inglaterra anuncia equipa Test para a Austrália
December 8, 2021 - January 18, 2022 -
Joe Root vai capitanear uma equipa experiente de 17 jogadores na
série de cinco jogos do Ashes Test na Austrália – a tentar recuperar a
célebre urna após a Austrália a ter conservado em Inglaterra em 2019. O Primeiro Test começa em The Gabba, em Brisbane, a 8 de dezembro.
The battle for the Ashes began with a mock obituary in the Sporting Times after England’s shock home defeat to Australia in 1882 that proclaimed the death of English cricket. Its body was to be cremated and the “ashes” taken to Australia.
For more than a century, the battle for the famous little terracotta urn purportedly containing the Ashes has sparked controversy, enthralled crowds and produced iconic sporting moments.
Australia are currently ahead with 33 wins to England’s 32, with six series drawn.
