ECB shared the first glimpse of the special jersey via a social media post.
“Rising for the Ashes. The special edition Ashes Test shirt is available now. #ENGvAUS,” tweeted the ECB.
In the previous edition of the Ashes series held in the 2021-22 season, Australia emerged victorious with a comprehensive 4-0 win on their home turf.
However, England is now gearing up with new skipper Ben Stokes and the coaching expertise of Brendon McCullum, known for his ‘Bazball’ style of cricket. With the upcoming Ashes series scheduled to be held in England, the home team is determined to reclaim the prestigious Ashes urn.
Since the inception of the Ashes in 1882, a total of 72 series have been contested between England and Australia. Out of these, England has won 32 series, Australia has claimed victory in 34, while six series have ended in a draw.
As of now, England is yet to announce their squad for the upcoming Ashes series. They will kickstart their home Test summer by playing against Ireland at the Lord’s from June 1. This match will serve as a warm-up before their focus turns to the Ashes battle against Australia.
