This is the critical moment for England as their campaign begins this week, as they seek to end a dismal record in Australia.
It’s been 10 years since England won the Ashes in the Southern Hemisphere, and in the decade that followed, England didn’t even win a test series.
This leaves England as a big underdog for the contest but fans are hoping it won’t be a difficult viewing for next month.
Considering the late nights, many fans may not want to stay awake to watch the action – but could still keep up to date with the news by going online.
Here we have everything you need to know about the radio coverage of the series.
