Sky Cricket's commentators will be on hand to bring you the best analysis and chat after each day's play.
In episode one - 'The Ashes preview', available now on iTunes and as an MP3 - Nasser Hussain stresses the importance of making the right decision at the toss in Brisbane and also reveals that he has turned to Bumble for advice as he prepares to come out of golfing retirement Down Under.
Bob Willis has backed Steven Finn to win the 'third seamer race' in Brisbane, while Andrew Strauss is predicting a repeat of England's 3-1 win in Australia from three years ago.
Michael Atherton discusses the key differences between captaining and opening the batting in Australia as opposed to England, and advises Nasser against a return to golf.
The Australian view comes from bullish Sydney-based TV and radio personality Gus Worland, who, as well as promising a hostile reception for Stuart Broad, has warned England not to take the improving Baggy Greens lightly.
