From 1982 to 2019: Know all the Ashes’ winners

This Ad is not available for you.

The Ashes is a bilateral Test series played between England and Australia. It is a five-match series hosted alternately by the two teams roughly every two years. 

The series got the name ‘The Ashes’ after the British newspaper, The Sporting Times published a satirical obituary mourning England’s seven-run loss to Australia at The Oval in 1882, which was their first defeat against the Australians on English soil. 

Thereafter, 72 Ashes series have been played between the two sides with Australia winning 34 while England have won 32 times. Six series have ended in a draw.

Both England and Australia have won the Ashes a record eight consecutive times each in the past. England’s winning streak spanned from 1882-83 until 1890 as the English won 16 Tests while losing only four. 

Meanwhile, Australia held the Ashes urn from 1989 to 2005 before England won a long-overdue series against the Aussies, beating them 2-1 at home to end Australia’s dominance of 16 years. 

Here’s the list of all the Ashes series winners since 1882-83.
