Earlier, the series was on the verge of cancellation due to the Australian Government’s covid-19 guidelines for visitors. The Englishmen were reluctant to visit Down Under following such harsh rules and covid protocols.
As per the rules, English players were not allowed to be accompanied by any of their family members, however, a few rounds of talks have simplified the equation as the families are now allowed.
The last edition of the Men’s Ashes was held in 2019 which concluded on a dramatic draw at Kennington Oval, London. Before that, Australia bagged the series in 2017-18 at their backyard with a 4-0 lead.
