2019 Ashes schedule, scores, Steve Smith, results, fixture, cricket

AUSTRALIAN batting maestro Steve Smith was still in his whites when he openly discussed his burning ambition to retain the urn in 18 months.

By the time the Aussies land at Heathrow in 2019, there will be first-class cricketers who were not born when Steve Waugh led his all-conquering side to a 4-1 series victory.

The year was 2001 and despite winning at least one Test in three of the four series since, Australia has generally been underwhelming in the UK ever since, winning just four of 20 Tests.

But the just-completed Ashes and the relative youth of Australia’s best XI has Smith excited for the 2019 Ashes.

“England in 2019 it is a long way away but it’s a real challenge for us as well and a bucket list for mine to win an Ashes series in England,” Smith told reporters just after Australia had wrapped up a comprehensive 4-0 Ashes result.
