This was the talk about the ashes 2019 and 2017-18 but you know how this ashes series means? and how it was started and how this becomes the oldest and fiercely rivalry of cricket?

Let's take a look of it-

This hostility started in 1882 when Australia registered the first Test match triumph in England soil at Oval, which was a low scoring match in which Australia batted first and scored 63 runs in their first innings, in the revert of Australia's 63 runs England team He scored 101 runs and took 38 runs lead in the first innings.

Then Australia's team scored 122 runs with the help of Hugh Massie's 55 runs on just 60 balls after England's team had to score just 85 runs to win but Fred Spofforth, for Australia, took 4 wickets of England, which helped Australia's team won their first Test match on English soil.

After that England media wrote a lot about that match in which they wrote the Australian team's praise and criticized the England team. Not only this but a newspaper of Britain, The Sporting Times, wrote the term obituary after the defeat of English team and the term obituary stated that English cricket had passed away and the "the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia". After that England captain, Ivo Bligh vowed to "regain those ashes".

After that, in 1882-83, the England team went on a tour of Australia to play in the 3 test match Ashes series, in which England won two matches and won the series as well.

After which a Women Group in Melbourne, including the wife of the Ivo Bligh (Florence Morphy), awarded an urn to the England captain, in which there were the ashes of Wooden Bails and was humorously described as "the ashes of Australian cricket"

After winning the tour of Australia By the England team and his skipper Ivo Bligh, the word "Ashes" disappeared for 20 years and this series was not called by this name at least not in England. But the word was come in the hype again in Australia when George Giffen, mentioned it in his Autobiography (With Bat and Ball).

After that Pelham Warner, in 1903, went for a tour of Australia with his team to play ashes and promises the British media that he would "regain the Ashes" as a Bligh has done 20 years ago, on this, the Australian media criticized and wrote many things.

But all of these did not have any effect on Warner, and once again England's team defeated Australia in the Ashes, after which Warner Published a book and gave the title of the book is, "How We Recovered the Ashes" though this name was not anywhere in the book it was only Australia's revive public interest in the legend.

This is how this rivalry beguns and For this reason, this rivalry continues even today and this series is known as "The Ashes."
