The 2023 iteration of The Ashes will see rivalries renewed between two of cricket's greatest teams, with England and Australia set to do battle once again.
The last series between the pair saw Australia humiliate their opponents in a 4-0 win across the five-match series. More worrying for England was the fact that they were lucky not to lose to a 5-0 whitewash, rather than Australia being lucky they had won so comfortably.
Ultimately, England had to battle incredibly hard for a draw in the fourth Test, with the tourists avoiding defeat in the final session despite being nine wickets down.
This draw was hugely disappointing for the Aussies, but normal service was resumed in the fifth and final match, with Australia romping to a 146 run win and a 4-0 series triumph.
Defeat for England saw the Aussies retain The Ashes, with a 2-2 draw in the previous series in 2019 also seeing Australia retain the Ashes.
The disparity between the two teams did not seem overly large in the 2019 series, but that is usually the way the series goes in England. When the Aussies tour England, all results are on the table, with the battle usually evenly matched.
However, when England come to tour Australia, it is usually a question of 'how many?' with regard to how many more games the Aussies will win than England.
In the upcoming 2023 Ashes, Australia are once again the touring side, meaning a slightly more even series is likely. Boombet currently rate Australia at $2.00 to retain the old urn, while England are $2.37 to wrestle back the trophy. The available odds shows that the bookies are struggling to separate the two, with both sides pretty much offering the same value.
A draw is a big outsider at $6.00.
Despite being the side that seems to have dominated The Ashes over its history, the Aussies have actually only won two more series than their opponents, with Australia winning 34 and England winning 32.
However, it is worth noting that Australia have won 140 of the Test matches between the sides, with England winning 108, while there have been 92 draws.
In the upcoming series, it will be interesting to see how England fare on their own pitches again. Stalwart bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad were both left out of the tour of the West Indies, and with the two well into their 30's, it seems as though they may have played their last games for their country.
For Australia, the continued production of top-class talent means the future looks very bright. Indeed, Marnus Labuschagne continues his excellent form with the bat after really coming to the fore in the 2019 Ashes series in the absence of Steve Smith, and is the pick of many to be England's arch-nemesis once again.
