THE Ashes is finally back this summer and England will be hoping to finally win back the urn they lost in 2017.
England were thumped 4-0 last time out in the 2021/22 series, but now they’re back at home in June and July.
Ben Stokes will be hoping to fire England to Ashes victory this summer
Joe Root’s time as captain came to an end after Ben Stokes was appointed as his successor in April 2022.
Australia have been dominant in the Ashes since England last won a series, which was in 2015.
If the Aussies win this summer, they’ll have held the Ashes for an entire decade by the time the next series rolls around in 2025, so it’s all on the line for England.
Ben Stokes will be looking to repeat his heroics from the World Cup in 2019 and the T20 World Cup from last year.
But head coach Brendon McCullum will need more than just Stokes firing on all cylinders if England are to regain the Ashes.
