ENG vs AUS, Ashes 2023, Where to watch on TV and live streaming

The biggest rivalry in Test cricket is set to resume when England and Australia go for a battle in the Ashes 2023. The Ashes is the oldest and fiercest rivalry in the sport and has huge significance for both these countries. So much so that, they often treat everything in between the two Ashes series as a preparation for the next. 

In 2019, the men’s Ashes produced one of the greatest series when the two rivals drew it by 2-2. The series is known for Ben Stokes’ heroics at Headingley and Steve Smith’s ridiculous tally of 774 runs in seven innings. 

The previous Ashes edition was held in Australia in 2021/22 but it wasn’t competitive as the hosts hammered England by 4-0. England haven’t done well down under for a long time and the previous series was no different as they were outplayed in all facets of the game. They managed to draw the fourth Test at Sydney but lost the other matches by heavy margins.

England, who have been playing some brave cricket under captain Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum, will be hoping to claim the urn back. The Ashes 2023 will kick off with England and Australia facing off at Edgbaston on June 16th. 

Here’s everything you need to know about how and where to watch the men’s Ashes 2023.
