Both Australia and England are set to renew their hyper-competitive rivalry with the Ashes 2019. But unlike previous editions, this Ashes series comes with an additional challenge in the form of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC), which makes it imperative for both sides with 120 WTC points on stake.

The hosts hold an astounding Ashes record at home as they have not lost a series in England since 2001, which provides them with a psychological advantage. Furthermore, their recent ODI success followed by a prefect Irish rout (by 143 runs) makes them favorites ahead of the action.

While for Australia, the return of their elite batch (Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft) in the Test squad is certainly a big boost. Despite this, the visitors will need to defy the odds to end their Ashes drought in the British landscape.
