The Ashes Winner History


Note: The Ashes is a Test Cricket championship series and the oldest rivalry in cricket played only between Australia and England. Therefore, if one of these countries is the winner, the other one is the only runner-up. Therefore, it is meaningless for me to include a separate column here for the Runner-Ups. That should be obvious.

Notes

  • In 2013, two ashes series were held, one in England and the other in Australia, to make up for the fact that the series was missed in the year 2012. The next Ashes will be held in England, in 2015.
