Tourism Australia has launched a competition to bring English cricket fans down under for the Ashes.

Anyone who loves watching cricket may already be scouring the internet for cheap flights to Australia in order to follow the England team during the forthcoming Ashes series.

However, Tourism Australia has launched a competition which will see one lucky winner receive a two-week, all expenses paid trip to the country, as well as tickets to one of the test matches.

To enter, cricket fans simply need to visit the organisation’s website and complete a quiz about the five cities where the Ashes will be contested.

Brisbane will host the opening game, with the players then travelling to Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne before finishing the series in Sydney.

The English side will be hoping to keep hold of the coveted trophy after winning the 2009 series, which was held in the UK.

After this winter’s Ashes test series in Australia, the urn will not be up for grabs again until 2013, when the competition returns to England.
