The Ashes Betting Guide - Adelaide The Venue For 2nd Test Match
England are in Australia for the 2013/14 Ashes and it is already shaping up to be a classic series. The old foes will be clashing in a five test series through the Australian summer with the Aussies looking to claim the urn back after they were outplayed on home soil. England are likely to start slight favourites in the Latest Ashes Series Betting but the Australians have a number of young players in the squad who will be eager to make a mark on the biggest stage.
Australia are being led by Michael Clarke through the Ashes in 2013/14 and he will have a tough task as he looks to lead the Aussies to their first series win in some time. Clarke has been on fire with the bat since taking the captaincy and he will need to play well if the tourists are to make a big impression over the coming weeks.
As usual with the Ashes Itinerary there will be a five test match series between the teams meaning the best team will prevail over the course of a long summer. Alastair Cook and the England team will be looking to win the urn for the third time on the bounce and they look to be in a strong position at the moment.
Ashes Recent Background
Recent Ashes series have been highly competitive with England winning the urn back on home soil in 2005, it was widely considered as one of the greatest series of all time and really put new lift into the rivalry. Australia followed that up though with a 5-0 whitewash back on home soil in 2006/07, it was a disastrous tour for England with Ricky Ponting regaining the Ashes.
In 2009 in England the battle continued as England once again won the Ashes back in a another thrilling series, the Aussies are not quite the team they were four years ago but they are still a top side and will be desperate to win the Urn back. England then dished out a beating to Australia in 2010/11 as they won down under for the first time in years and Alastair Cook will be looking to continue that run.
