Headingley, Edgbaston cop Ashes snub
20:12 AEST Fri Jun 1 2012

Durham's picturesque Riverside Ground will host an Ashes Test for the first time on Australia's much anticipated 2013 tour of England, but two of world cricket's most famous grounds will miss out.

The schedule for the five-Test series was released on Friday, with Australia's battle to reclaim the urn that England have held since 2009 beginning at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on July 10.

As Australia look to bounce back from a 3-1 hammering at home in 2010-11, the series then moves to Lord's, followed by Tests at Old Trafford in Manchester and the Riverside Ground in Durham.

The Oval in London concludes the series between cricket's oldest foes, who have played 326 Tests since the first in 1887.

Surprisingly, neither the famed Headingley ground in Leeds nor history-rich Edgbaston in Birmingham will host Tests.

Australia claimed their only win of the last Ashes series in 2009 at Headingley with a crushing innings and 80-run victory.

Edgbaston was the venue for one of the greatest-ever Ashes battles in 2005 when Michael Kasprowicz was caught behind on a dramatic final day to give England a two-run win.

Australia will play two Twenty20 matches and a five-game one-day series against England after the Ashes to complete a hectic tour schedule that features 17 matches in total.

New Zealand will start the busy English summer of cricket with two Tests and three one-dayers between May 16 and June 5, while a condensed ICC Champions Trophy will be contested from June 6-23.

In announcing the schedule, ECB chief executive David Collier promised a "memorable summer".

"The prospect of England defending the Ashes on home soil, the world's top eight teams competing in the ICC Champions Trophy, and a full program of 50-over and T20 international cricket will provide rich pickings for cricket fans next summer," he said.
