When it comes to cricket, there’s no better time to be in Brisbane than during the Ashes. This test series between England and Australia has become a tense battle each time the teams meet. The first Ashes test is always held at the Gabba, giving the home team an advantage and adding to the excitement for local fans. Though fewer international fans will be in attendance this time, Aussies and other ex-pats are expected to be in full force.

The last Ashes Test was a 4-0 whitewash for England, so fans will be hoping for better results in the upcoming series. Skipper Joe Root will be the key for England, and will need to score plenty of runs. Root has been in the form of his life, and he will be one to watch in this series. Ben Stokes will also be an important player to watch out for during the series.

Australia made a much better recovery than England during the first Ashes Test. They were able to score a massive 707 in their first innings and then had to chase it down. Australia scored 417-7 declared and had a powerful new-ball partnership with Ray Lindwall and Keith Miller.

Australia’s left-handed batsman Travis Head described his century in the First Ashes Test in Brisbane as a ‘crazy moment’. Head made 152 off 148 balls and hit four sixes in the innings. His innings pushed the hosts to a record win by nine wickets.

In addition to cricket, other sports have used the term “the Ashes” in their international competitions. The oldest of these rivalries is rugby league, which began in 1908. The names of these contests have become a part of Australian history. Although these games are no longer played on a regular basis, the Ashes’ name continues to be used as a metaphor.

“The Ashes” is a legend among cricket fans. It first appeared in Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack in 1905, and was later used to refer to the Ashes series. In the 2006/7 Ashes series, the ashes urn traveled to different parts of the country. It was first displayed in Sydney on 17 October 2006 and then made its way to the other states, including Tasmania.

There’s plenty to do in Brisbane. For instance, the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art is accessible, fun, and has something to offer for everyone. There’s also the Asia Pacific Triennial, which runs from December 4 until April 25. Another unique piece of art in the city is the Boomerang sculpture by Ai Weiwei, which is made up of 270,000 crystal pieces. The All Day Diner, meanwhile, is a great place to enjoy a pan-Asian menu and a shot of caffeine.
