One of cricket's oldest sporting battles, The Ashes, has kicked off in Australia.

The first Test began on Thursday in Brisbane and England are hoping to win the series again, following their 2009 victory over the Aussies on home soil.

The Brits haven't won the Ashes in Australia in more than 20 years, but the pressure is also on Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting - his team has already lost two Ashes series under his leadership.
