England will look to capitalise on their momentum from the maiden World Cup victory when they host Australia for the historic Ashes Test series. Australia hold the Ashes but have not won a Test series away to England for 18 years. With the series taking place in the same season as a World Cup for the first time since 1975, next week’s first Test will be Australia’s opening first-class match of their tour. Cameron Bancroft was included in Australia’s 17-man squad for the five-Test Ashes series against England alongside Steve Smith and David Warner. All three batsmen served lengthy bans for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa last year. For England, uncapped fast bowler Jofra Archer has been included in the 14-man squad for the Ashes opener against Australia, with all-rounder Ben Stokes re-appointed as vice-captain.
