Ashes 2019 live stream: how to watch every England vs Australia cricket Test from anywhere

Regardless of what side you're supporting in the 2019 Ashes, you can't deny that it's already been a compelling contest. The latest chapter in the 135-year England vs Australia sporting story has had some delectable cricket and a mouth-watering narrative. And you can watch all of the action from every Test match no matter where you are in the world with our 2019 Ashes live stream guide.

Forget your World Cups and Twenty20s - winning the Ashes is the biggest feather in a cap for any cricketer from old rivals England and Australia. It's one of oldest sporting rivalries and the Ashes series still stands as the pinnacle of Test cricket. England will be desperate to win back the Ashes on home soil, having been thrashed 4-0 Down Under 18 months ago. While for the Aussies it's an opportunity to make some positive headlines after their recent ball-tampering scandal and a World Cup campaign that ended at the semi-final stage after promising so much more.

The home side appear to have huge strength in depth when it comes to bowling, but big doubts remain over their batting line up going into the series. Jofra Archer's superb showing at the World Cup which saw him take 20 wickets during the tournament, ensured his place in the team is set - especially now that talisman Jimmy Anderson is injured.

Australia went into the series with former captain Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft all reinstalled to the line-up after completing their bans for the infamous sandpaper ball-tampering scandal. Steve Smith was the difference maker at Edgbaston, with flawless two centuries to take the game way out of England's reach.

As well as Smith, it will likely be down to fast bowling department, which boast a potent mix of James Pattinson's pace, Pat Cummins' machine-like accuracy and Peter Siddle's guile. And the resounding victory of their female counterparts in the Women's Ashes should give them a boost, too!

It's set to continue to be a fascinating series - follow the instructions below to watch all of the action where we'll tell you how to grab an England vs Australia Ashes live stream from pretty much anywhere on Earth. The great's absolutely free in Australia.

What is The Ashes?

One of the longest-running rivalries in sport, the Ashes series is traditionally five Tests, hosted in turn by England and Australia at least once every two years.

Why is the Ashes called the Ashes?

The name of the Test series stems from when England lost to Australia for the first time on home soil at The Oval on August 29 1882. The Sporting Times carried a mock obituary of English cricket the following day which concluded that: "The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia".

When England next toured Australia a pair of bails were burned and the ashes put into the now famous urn. These days, the players of the side who wins the series are given a replica to celebrate with, with the original Ashes urn on display in the MCC museum at Lord's cricket ground in London.

Who is favourite to win this year's Ashes?

Having not lost a home Ashes series since 2001, England are the outright favourites for a series win with Betfair.

Who is the current holder of the Ashes?

The Aussies are the current holders of the Ashes, having won the last series in convincing style 4-0, back in 2017.

Who has won the Ashes the most?

Australia are currently ahead on 33 Ashes series wins to England’s 32 and five series drawn.
