With certain new entries in the team such as Ben Foakes, the squad looks talented enough to defeat Australia on their home ground. ONE of the interesting things to see here is that Ben Stokes, who was arrested yesterday on the suspicion for causing actual bodily harm, has been included and named as the Vice President for England.

It remains to be seen how the Australian squad is going to look like as it is yet to decide on a team that will have to go up against the England squad.

The five venues for the series are expected to be the Gabba, Brisbane; the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide; the WACA Ground, Perth; the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne and the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. The Adelaide Oval will also be the first to host a day/night Ashes Test during the series.
