England and Australia are set to battle for the coveted urn as the first Ashes Test of 2013 takes place on July 10 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. David Cameron, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland wished the England team the very best for this series.

Cameron says that the nation is behind Alastair Cook and his men. He also said that he recalls Kevin Pietersen's memorable ton at the Oval during the Ashes 2005, which helped them win the series that year. He also said that 2013 has been a significant year for English cricket as they hosted the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 and are now set to stage the Ashes.
