Australia’s first Ashes Test in England was played at the Gabba on Sunday.
The Ashes, which have been a long time coming for the Aussies, will see Australia face England in Brisbane on Sunday (AEDT) and the first Test between the two nations is set to be played in Adelaide on November 14.
The game will be played on a two-day basis, with the first match on the day after the Ashes and the second on the following day.
Australia’s first Test at the Adelaide Oval was played on June 30, 1962.
It will be the second time Australia will host an Ashes Test, having played two Tests at the MCG in Melbourne in 2014 and then in Adelaide in 2016.
“It’s a big deal, a big step forward,” Australia coach Darren Lehmann told ESPNcricinfo.
“You’re looking at a match that will probably take the crowd into the house a little bit.
You’re looking forward to it.
The first Test, which was played in Melbourne from May 30 to June 3, 1962, was Australia’s only series victory over England.”
It’s the first time we’ve had a Test in Australia since the first Ashes in Australia in 1967.”
The first Test, which was played in Melbourne from May 30 to June 3, 1962, was Australia’s only series victory over England.
England’s first test at the SCG in Brisbane from July 8 to 11, 1962 was the last Test of England’s Test series against Australia.
The second Test at Adelaide Oval, which saw England host Australia in a home-and-away series from July 16 to 20, 1963, was the first game played between the teams in the series.
Australia was the only team to score a Test-match century in the second Test, but was beaten by England on the final day.
England has lost the first two Test series, but it is not the only side to have a disappointing Ashes series, with Australia having lost the previous two matches against the New Zealanders.
The match will be broadcast live on the BBC Sport site.
The full commentary for the Ashes will be available on Sunday’s broadcast of the first series on ESPN3.
