The first Ashes series was in 1882 between England and Australia and has been played biennially since then, alternately in England and Australia. The 2013 Ashes series is a forthcoming series of Test cricket matches to be contested between England and Australia. The five venues for the series will be Lord's, Old Trafford, Trent Bridge, the Riverside Ground and The Oval. There were questions as to whether Lord's would host an Ashes match – it would have been the first time since 1882 that Lord's had not hosted an Ashes Test – but the venues were eventually confirmed to include Lord's on 22 September 2011. On 1 June 2012, it was announced that the First Test was scheduled to take place at Trent Bridge.
This years test is already surrounded in controversy after an Australian cricketer punched one of his English counterparts after a boozy night, it promises to be a firy test series this year.
The first test in the 2013 series will take place on 10th July at Nottingham's Trent Bridge ground.and will take in Lords, Chester-Le-Street, The Oval and Old Trafford. If you're thinking of taking in the sights and sounds of the test while it's in London, what better way to arrive than in your own chauffeur driven car, then relax with a few beers in the sun and get collected afterwards by your chauffeur.
