The visitors easily won the first Test, but Joe Root and company drew the second and won the third. Australia came back and won the fourth match before dropping the championship match. In an interview with ESPN Cricinfo, Root noted how the 2023 Ashes series kept swinging back and forth and said he anticipates another competitive match this year.

“I Look Back At The Last One”: Joe Root

“I look back at the last one we had in the UK, and it just didn’t feel like it ran for us. Although we drew the series, Jofra [Archer] wasn’t available for the first game. Woody [Mark Wood] was out for the series. Jimmy [Anderson] bowled four overs. But that’s the exciting part of an Ashes series, how close they seem to go, especially in the UK, and how it can draw some of the best Test cricket out of the two teams.”

Root said

Root, who served as captain for the 2023 Ashes, fluctuated in his performance throughout the series, scoring 325 runs in 10 innings at an average of 32.5, including four fifty-scorers.

Joe Root acknowledged that Australia is no pushover, as seen by their participation in the World Test Championship final the following month. He is prepared for the task the guests will present during the Ashes, though.

England’s Way Ahead

“It should make for great cricket, and that’s what you want to play in. You want to play in those brilliant Test matches and to be the one there at the end, not out, having won the game for your teammates.”

Said Joe Root

The last time England won the Ashes on home soil was in 2015. This year, Ben Stokes and company plan to end that dry spell. On June 1 at Lord’s, they will play a single Test match against Ireland to kick off their summer.

Root, who needs 52 more runs in a Test to reach 10,000, might hit that milestone against the Irish. Interestingly, the Three Lions last won the Ashes in 2015, taking the five-match series 3-2 at home. The rivals combine to form a “very good team,” according to Root, who noted that the Australians’ advancement to the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2021–23 Final is due to this.
