England’s defence of The Ashes will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport this winter and you can now predict how they’ll perform thanks to our new game.

Joe Root’s men begin the battle Down Under on Thursday 23rd November and you can join in at home while watching the action unfold.

Watch the 2017-18 Ashes exclusively on BT Sport

To be in with a chance of winning a shirt signed by the BT Sport cricket team you’ll need to pick four players for each Test match.

After selecting a top-order batsman, middle-order batsman, an all-rounder and a bowler you'll score points according to how well they perform.

It's free and simple to play, but how on earth do you pick between Alastair Cook, Joe Root, David Warner and Steve Smith?

And will you choose Stuart Broad, Jimmy Anderson, Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazlewood as your bowler?

The scoring system will award points for performance, including runs scored, strike rate, wickets taken, catches held, maiden overs bowled and so on. 

Challenge your friends and colleagues to see who can make the best picks and take on the BT Sport commentary team including Michael Vaughan and Graeme Swann.

We’re running also similar predictor games for lots of other sports and competitions, including the Premier League, Champions League, Aviva Premiership and European Rugby Champions Cup - so get involved!

“It’s just one of the many new ways we’re enhancing our viewers’ experience this season. And almost as importantly we’re going to find out once and for all how much our experts know about their sport.”
