ASHES HISTORY

The first test match between two countries took place in 1877.

The first ‘Ashes’ dates back to 1882. Following England’s loss to Australia “The Sporting Times”, a British sporting newspaper, published a satirical obituary to English cricket. It read that the body would be cremated and returned with Australia.

There wasn’t an official trophy until 1998-99, when an urn-shaped award crafted from Waterford Crystal was introduced.
