Whoever told you the first game will be on 8th July was wrong.
The first game of the Ashes series will take place between the best of England and the best of Australia at Barnes CC in London on Monday, 29th June.
The Village Cricketer will lead the Best of England side, while the King of Bloggers, Jrod of Cricket with Balls, will be leading Australia.
Its not just any cricket match this one; its the Bloggers' Ashes!
Moreover, besides wanting to kick each others' behinds, VC and Jrod are playing the game for a noble and charitable cause.
That being raising awareness and funds for the everyman male cancer campaign.
If you would like donate towards this noble cause, you can do it here.
Oh and the Jrod is looking for players for his team. So if you are an Australian living in London, or are willing to fly in for Monday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and Jrod will take it from there.
Remember, its the Ashes, and they're on 29th June!
