The Ashes is sport’s most enduring rivalry; cricket’s two oldest teams fiercely competing for the game’s most revered trophy.
Former Australian Test captain Ian Chappell and co-host Julian King will pad up once again for The Cricket Show: Ashes Edition, on Macquarie Sports Radio starting 8:00 am on Saturday, July 27.
Chappelli and Julian will chart Australia’s defense of the iconic Urn and their attempt to knock off The Old Enemy by winning the five-match series on English soil for the first time since 2001.
“I think it’s going to be a pretty tight ashes series, and Australia might’ve just snuck ahead in the last couple of days with news from England that Jimmy Anderson might miss the first test, Archer’s definitely out of the first test,” Chappell said.
“The Australian fast bowling stocks… they’ll all be very confident,…the batsmen might be keeping their heads down though!”
