Live 2017 Ashes Cricket Test Matches Saigon

The 2017–18 Ashes series (named Magellan Ashes Series for sponsorship reasons) is an ongoing series of Test cricket matches contested between England and Australia for The Ashes. The series is being played at five venues across Australia between 23 November 2017 and 8 January 2018.

In September 2017, Ben Stokes was named in the initial England squad, but was subsequently ruled out of international selection until further notice, whilst a disciplinary process takes place. The following month, he was withdrawn from the Ashes squad, pending an investigation, with Steven Finn added to England’s squad. However, Finn was then himself ruled out of the tour, injuring his knee before the first warm-up game. Tom Curran was called up to replace him. James Anderson was named as England’s vice-captain for the Test series in Stokes’ absence. George Garton was added to England’s squad as cover for Jake Ball during pre-Test tour matches, but returned to the England Lions when Ball recovered in time for the first Test.

Australia delayed the naming of the squad for the first two Tests until 17 November 2017, and selected Cameron Bancroft to replace Matthew Renshaw. Tim Paine returned to the team after a seven-year absence, ahead of Matthew Wade and Peter Nevill. Ahead of first Test, Glenn Maxwell was added to Australia’s squad as a cover for David Warner, who injured his neck at training.


The five venues are the Gabba, Adelaide Oval, the WACA Ground, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The WACA Ground was expected to host its final Test during the series, prior to the opening of the new Perth Stadium. However, it was said in November 2015 that construction of the new stadium was well ahead of schedule and the Perth Test could be hosted at the new venue. A decision on the venue was made in May 2017, with the WACA Ground confirmed as the venue, as the new stadium would not be ready in time. In December 2016, Cricket Australia (CA) were looking at hosting the first day/night Ashes match, with Adelaide being the likely venue. On 12 December 2016, it was confirmed that Adelaide Oval will host the first day/night Ashes Test.
