Sport.co.uk has grown rapidly since its re-launch earlier in the year in both coverage and readership and we have grown from just a handful of writers to over one hundred.
(PRWEB UK) 21 November 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced they are expanding the coverage of the sport.co.uk website to include unparalleled coverage of The Ashes.
England have dominated Australia in The Ashes recently, with three wins in a row and will now be looking at overtaking Australia for the first time in years as the overall series leaders. England and Australia are currently drawn on 67 series wins, 31 wins, 31 defeats and 5 draws. Australia last won an Ashes series in the 2006-2007 season in Australia and England go into this series as clear favourites and with a settled squad of players. The stats also shows that England have only lost two of the last 15 Ashes tests and the only question mark is over the ongoing recovery from injury of wicketkeeper Matt prior. The series has kicked off at the Gabba in Brisbane which has been something of a fortress for Australia with England failing the win at the ground since 1986.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “With the Ashes being moved forward due to Australia co-hosting the World Cup in 2015, we are treated to a back-to-back Ashes series falling in the same year and a bit more history. Brisbane will be key if England are to retain The Ashes as it was last time round and a big performance from bowlers and batsmen is required at the Gabba. A draw would be ok but a win would be a major psychological blow to Australia who haven’t lost to England at the Gabba in 27 years. We will of course be providing extended coverage and following all the action as it happens on Sport.co.uk.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG believes that Sport.co.uk will be the perfect venue for Ashes News “Sport.co.uk has grown rapidly since its re-launch earlier in the year in both coverage and readership and we have grown from just a handful of writers to over one hundred. The great quality of our journalists and feature writers are already providing a great service to Sport fans. Sport.co.uk is the perfect hub for international cricket in the UK.”
