Steve Smith and Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra predicts Australia to win the forthcoming Ashes tour

Australia and England form the oldest rivalry in cricket. The two nations share a fierce relationship both on and off the field.

The Ashes played a huge role in establishing the cricketing rivalry between the two countries, with the first edition being played in 1882.

These two nations have played 72 series, and Australia are the most successful team with 34 series win, two more than England.

Australia retained the Ashes in 2021 as the Kangaroos thumped England 4-0 in Australia. The next mega-event will be in England from 16th June- 31st July 2023.

For the first time in Ashes history, no Test match will be played in August in England since the two teams need appropriate time to practice for the 50-over World Cup in October.

Ahead of the forthcoming Ashes, former India opener turned analyst Aakash Chopra tweeted his prediction about the winner of the series and which player would bag the most runs in this prestigious tour.

Chopra predicted the Aussies to beat England in England and their talismanic batsman Steve Smith would be the highest run-getter in the series.

“Australia to win #TheAshes Steve Smith—Highest Run-Scorer By the way, when was the last time England won the Ashes Down Under?” Chopra tweeted.

Interestingly the last time Australia beat England in England was in 2001 when the baggy greens beat the Three Lions (4-1) in the five-match series.
