Ashes History


1981 Ashes
The tour by the Australian cricket team in England in 1981 included the 51st Ashes series of Test matches between Australia and England.

Despite having been 10 down after two Tests, England won the next three Tests to finish 31 victors (with two draws), thus retaining the Ashes.

The series is popularly known as Botham's Ashes, due to the remarkable performances of Ian Botham with both bat and ball.
