In 1882, Australia recorded their first test Match victory on English soil, at the Oval. "English cricket died today." said an 'obituary' in the Sporting Times. "The body will be cremated, and the ashes taken to Australia." Ever since then, when England and Australia play each other at anything, it is said to be "... for the Ashes."
It was 1:00 pm on March 15, 1877 when the first test begins between Australia and England. The 1877 Australia v England series was the first ever Test cricket tour of Australia by the English cricket team. The tour was from 15 March 1877 to 4 April 1877 in which the test series was drawn 1-1.
