BBC Sport - Ashes 2015: Captains Cook and Clarke preview series
Cook and Clarke look forward to Ashes
- From the section Cricket
England and Australia captains Alastair Cook and Michael Clarke look forward to the first Ashes Test in Cardiff.
Cook says this series is a "fresh start" with "new faces" on both sides, after the last two series have had vastly conflicting results - England winning 3-0 at home in 2013, before Australia totally dominated in a 5-0 whitewash six months later.
