England begin their bid to defend the Ashes and secure a first series victory in Australia for 24 years at the Brisbane Cricket Ground on Thursday.

Their last victory at the Gabba was in 1986 when Mike Gatting led England to a seven-wicket win in a 2-1 series win.

“We’re all just very keen to get amongst it now,” said England captain Andrew Strauss.

The tourists have no injury concerns, while Aussie batsman Michael Clarke has been passed fit to play.
