ENG vs AUS LIVE Score, Ashes 2019: Australia skipper Tim Paine won the toss and opted to bat in the Ashes opener.
Australia skipper Tim Paine won the toss and opted to bat in the Ashes opener. England return to ‘Fortress Edgbaston’ for the first match against Australia on Thursday looking to round off an already memorable season by completing a World Cup and Ashes double. If the World Cup remains the pinnacle of the 50-over game, for England and Australia there’s nothing quite like a renewal of Test cricket’s oldest rivalry. But now there’s arguably more at stake for both sides than the series result. For England, a home season billed as the most important in a generation started brilliantly with their impressive run to a first men’s World Cup title.
