English cricket team in Australia in 1924–25

Newspaper article describing batting on the fifth day of the first Ashes test, with Taylor's 108 in the record 10th wicket partnership.

England cricket team's tour of Australia in the 1924–25 season. Australia won the Ashes series 4–1.


  • First Test (Sydney) – Australia won by 193 runs.[1]
  • Second Test (Melbourne) – Australia won by 81 runs.[1]
  • Third Test (Adelaide) – Australia won by 11 runs.[1]
  • Fourth Test (Melbourne) – England won by an innings and 29 runs.[1]
  • Fifth Test (Sydney) – Australia won by 307 runs.[1]

The first Test included a record 127 run tenth wicket partnership between Johnny Taylor and Arthur Mailey which stood as Australia's best for that wicket until Phillip Hughes and Ashton Agar set a new world record by scoring 163 for the tenth wicket against England in the First Test at Trent Bridge in July 2013.

The English team had a stopover in Colombo en route to Australia and played a one-day single-innings match there against the Ceylon national team, which at that time did not have Test status.[2]
