A long and illustrious history of the team
While an England Cricket team has potentially been in existence since 1739, it was only in the latter half of the 19th century that it really came into its own. The first England Cricket away tours - almost essential if you want to call yourself a national sports team - took place in North America and then Australia, which eventually resulted in the birth of The Ashes, one of the most famous competitions in cricket, in 1882. The first Test match - the other major international cricket event - had been held a few years previously in Melbourne in 1877, while the first to be held in England was in 1880. It would be fair to say that even now England Cricket has met its match in Australia Cricket, a formidable opponent to whom the England Cricket team falls almost as much as they win against. This well-matched pairing is one of the things that makes international cricket so exciting, and when you throw in another strong team like Sri Lanka, India or New Zealand for a Twenty20 Cricket or One Day International Cricket competition, England Cricket tickets are guaranteed to offer a thrilling experience.
Cheer on the talented England Cricket players
If you're not following the team on one of the England Cricket away tours but choosing to watch a match closer to home, you'll find games held at a variety of international sports venues scattered across the country. The Rose Bowl, Lord's, The Oval, and Old Trafford are doubtless some of the most famous names among them - on this hallowed ground many legendary matches have been won or lost. One of the most exciting England Cricket highlights of recent years came not in England but Barbados, when the team won their first world championship, the World Twenty20, in 2010 with a smash victory over main rivals Australia. While the rest of the decade would be a mixed bag, the team coached by Trevor Bayliss managed to take back The Ashes in 2015 and provide their fans with many other exciting England Cricket fixtures. Whatever it is that you chose to see, whether a one-day international or a World Cup game, you can be assured of a strategic, skilful, and spectacularly entertaining event.
