The Ashes is a Test cricket series played between England and Australia. The Ashes are regarded as being held by the team that most recently won the Test series. If the test series is drawn, the team that currently holds the Ashes retains the trophy.
An Ashes series is traditionally of five Tests, hosted in turn by England and Australia at least once every two years. Within each country each of the usually five matches is held at different grounds.
The popularity and reputation of the cricket series has led to other sports or games, and/or their followers, using the name "Ashes" for contests between England and Australia.
