The north of England will not be hosting any Ashes games in 2015 as all of the tests have been named to be either in Wales or the south of England. Cardiff’s SWALEC Stadium will be the opening venue for the Ashes 2015 campaign in a years’ time, with the first test starting on July 8th. The final test will be held on August 20th 2015 at the KIA Oval stadium, where England will hope to win a fourth consecutive home Ashes series. Other venues that will host a test in the Ashes series next year are Lord’s, Edgbaston and Trent Bridge.
The Ashes 2015 tournament is the first tournament that England will play against Australia in 2015, but it will kick off a long rivalry that includes One Day International (ODI) games and a Twenty20 match. The week after England host the Ashes 2015, the Australian cricket team will play in a Twenty20 match against the English on August 31st. Three ODI’s will then be played between the two sides, all in the month of September, starting September 3rd and ending on September 13th. The next time they will meet after that will be at the end of the year, when England will travel to Australia for the second Ashes tournament of the year.
England are also set to play against New Zealand a couple of months before the Ashes 2015, which will act as a warm-up for the iconic cricket tournament. New Zealand will play 2 tests, 5 ODI’s and 1 Twenty20 match against England which will begin May 21st and end June 23rd. England will be hoping to steal the Ashes Urn back in 2015 after they were embarrassed by Australia with a whitewash defeat. ECB chief executive David Collier commented, “Next summer promises to be a hugely exciting international season with England’s bid to regain the Ashes set to be one of the major highlights of the sporting year.”
