The Ashes - Fifth Test

Cricket

This year The Oval will host the final Test match of the 2013 Ashes series. It is here at The Oval that England was first defeated by Australia on home soil in 1882, in a match that was to start the 'Quest for the Ashes'.

Over 130 years later, the England and Australia cricket teams will meet at The Oval again for the Fifth test of the 2013 series.

It was at The Oval that England's Sir Len Hutton achieved the highest ever Ashes score in 1938, setting a record of 364  runs. His score stood as a world record for 20 years, and still stands as an Ashes record today.
