Thank you to the ECB, the teams, coaches, match officials, host venues as well as governments and state associations in Australia for the men’s Ashes series that has taken place over the previous six weeks. To Hockley’s credit, the 2021/22 Ashes series has been an example of the international cricket community’s resiliency and steadfast spirit as it dealt with the unique obstacles provided by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Thank you to the England & Wales Cricket Board for their confidence and dedication in putting on an Ashes Series like no other. This series would not have been possible without the immense effort and commitment given by the players, staff, and their families to go to Australia, including a quarantine period “she said.
This summer, Australia won the 2021-22 Ashes 4-0 in one of the greatest sporting rivalries on the planet.
There were nearly half a million fans in attendance at each of the five matches over the course of 20 days, according to Cricket Australia (CA).
The women’s Ashes will begin on Thursday with a showdown between Australia and England.
On Thursday, the CommBank Women’s Ashes begin and the men’s white-ball series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka and the impending tour of Pakistan awaits, Hockley said.
