The Ashes urn will make its first journey to Australia in 12 years later this year when it is displayed in the State Library Victoria in Melbourne, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) announced on Wednesday. The urn, which traditionally resides in the MCC museum at its Lord’s ground headquarters, regardless of the result of an England-Australia Test series, will be on display in the Library’s ‘Velvet, Iron, Ashes’ exhibition from December 2019 until February 2020. By then the latest Ashes series between Test cricket’s oldest rivals will have been completed, with England staging a five-match series from August 1 to September 16 as they look to atone for a 4-0 away drubbing in 2017-18.
