Australia will be hosting England in a blockbuster five-match Ashes 2021-22, scheduled to commence on December 8 at the Gabba. The series will be a part of the second cycle of the ICC World Test Championship.

Since the iconic series started way back in 1882-83, 71 71 Ashes series have taken place and the two nations remain pretty much equal; Australia has won 33, England has won 32 with six drawn series between them. The last series took place in 2019 and resulted in a 2-2 draw – the first since 1972.

England, led by Joe Root, will be under the pump having lost two matches in their last series against India before it was called off due to the COVID-19 scare. Moreover, they will also miss the service of the legendary James Anderson, who will be missing out due to workload management.

On the other hand, Pat Cummins will lead Australia for the first time in the upcoming Ashes 2021-22. He was handed over the job after Tim Paine stepped down owing to an off-field scandal. The hosts have already announced their playing XI and will look to go hard at England from the first day itself to put themselves on the backfoot.

Ashes 2021-22 Squads

Australia: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Cameron Green, Pat Cummins (captain), Alex Carey (wicketkeeper), Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Jhye Richardson, Michael Neser, Mitchell Swepson

England: Joe Root (captain), James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Zak Crawley, Haseeb Hameed, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Craig Overton, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
