England didn't fair all that well during the World Cup earlier this year. In contrast Australia come to the UK with high hopes of adding the Ashes to their recent World Cup victory.
The Ashes 2015 gets underway on Wednesday the 8th with the first test being played at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff and as always if you can't get to any of the venues your trusted smartphone and tablet will help you keep up with every wicket, run and streaker.
If you have access to a supported device and login details for Sky the Sky Go app will bring you live coverage as it happens.

NOW TV could also be a good bet. It'll cost you £10.99 per week for their Sports Pass, you can stream it to your TV via that super little Chromecast you've got plugged in to the back of your TV.

BBC Sports probably wins as the better app with push notifications. Coupled with live commentary you'll get everything delivered to your phone or tablet as it happens. As an added bonus those of you with an Android Wear device will get the push notifications on your wrist. In this 'My Alerts' section just add England as your team.

The ECB app is the official England app and is probably one I'd steer clear off. Push notifications won't work and a new app was promised a few months ago but the development team have instead focused on an Apple Watch app. It does though show you a detailed score card and allows you to follow nearly every team that plays cricket.
