Fire-up for the #Ashes battle on Twitter

Wednesday, 8 July 2015

It doesn’t get much bigger than the #Ashes. Since 1882, Australia and England have battled for what must be the smallest trophy in world sport. Australia, coming off back-to-back victories will be looking for a three peat on English soil, and Aussie fans back home will be able to follow all the action via Twitter.

Anticipation is growing for the beginning of the series and, as @CricketAUS says, the wait is almost over.

Even Prince Charles is counting down the hours.

The Aussies have been training hard.

And partying (responsibly) even harder!

With competition for places in the first test XI at a premium, we might just see a bolter making the cut.

As always, cricket fans around the world can keep up to date with all the latest news and views, behind the scenes access, and insights from their favourite players on Twitter.

Make sure your don’t miss a thing by following all the official accounts: @CricketAUS, @CricketVideo, @WWOS9 and maybe even @EnglandCricket to see how the other half Tweets!

To help you get even closer to the #Ashes action, we’ve created two Twitter lists for you to follow, one made up of the Aussie players and coaches and another of our hand-picked interesting #Ashes accounts to follow list.
