With the Ashes taking place once again this year, viewers will be able to witness these lessons at the highest level of the game.

The first time that Australia and England formally met on the cricket field was in Melbourne, back in 1877.

Australia won by 45, a margin that was exactly matched a century later in the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where Australia once again got the better of England.

In the 325 tests that have been played between the two nations, Australia has won 130, England has won 106 and they have drawn 89.

The Ashes will take place between the 23 November 2017 and 8 January 2018.
