The Ashes

Australia retained the Ashes on English soil over the summer of 2023 in controversial but unforgettable fashion, with a series that had some brilliant moments.

England would come away feeling they were beaten harshly but also that they can be positive for the future under the leadership of Brendon McCullum.

Going 2-0 down was not the start England had hoped for. With controversial moments such as Carey stumping Bairstow when he believed the ball was dead.

The comeback seemed on though when England secured a three wicket vicotry at Headingley, before rain typically stopped any hopes at Emirates Old Trafford. A frustrating end to the series but plenty of positives to take.

For Engage, it was a memorable summer. We ran our ICON events at Lord’s, Emirates Old Trafford and Kia Oval, with all tests providing electric moments in a brilliant hospitality setting.
