The Ashes 2013 Live Telecast on Star Cricket in India

England vs Australia Ashes Cricket Live

Star Cricket and Star Sports brings live TV telecast of the Ashes 2013 (England vs Australia) test series in India. If cricket fans are tired of excess of limited overs cricket and if they love to watch the longer version of the game, then the Ashes is the best of all! The oldest cricket rivalry that brings in the best of the cricketers is the Ashes. England plays Australia in five test matches at home out of which they have already won the first couple of them. We have seen a good fight back by the Australians in the third test. Following is the full schedule of the Ashes 2013:

10th July to 14th July - 1st Test
18th July to 21st July - 2nd Test
1st August to 5th August - 3rd Test
9th August to 13th August - 4th Test
21st August to 25th August - 5th Test

This test series will also be followed by T20 and ODI matches, but for the time being let us not shift our focus from test cricket to the limited overs. 

Surrounded with controversies and some out of form players, Australia has already been under pressure. Some umpire decisions in first two matches went against their favour and again the DRS system came under the scanner. But whatever might be the situation, we cricket fans saw some exceptional cricket so far whether it could be great bowling from Siddle in the first test, a lot of wickets to Swann or consistent batting from Bell and big innings from Root.

England won the first test match by 14 runs and the second test match by 347 runs. The first match was a nail biter which went England's way. The second test match was a pure one sided affair comprehensively won by England. The third test has embarked on a fight back by the Australians which we hope should continue till the end of the Ashes so that we get to see some exciting cricket.

If we have a look at the individual records in the Ashes 2013, Ian Bell leads the runs tally followed by Clarke and Root. In the bowling department, Swann leads the others and he is followed by Siddle and Anderson.

We are just half way through and there is still a lot of cricket to follow. We may see Australia turn tables on England to win a match or two. We may also see England continuing the dominance and winning the test series pretty easily. Let us wait and watch! We will keep you updated with the upcoming test matches. Stay tuned.
