2021/22 Ashes History
The series was not called by the name Ashes until 1882. In 1882, Australia managed to defeat the English cricket team on their home soil and this led to a newspaper called The Sporting Times publishing a satirical obituary that stated English cricket had died, and “the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”. The mythical ashes immediately became associated with the 1882–83 series played in Australia, before which the English captain Ivo Bligh had vowed to “regain those ashes”. The English media, therefore, dubbed the tour the quest to regain the Ashes.
