Ashes economy boost

Interesting study reminds us to save up for the next Ashes series!

Last winter's Ashes series provided a £133m boost for the Australian economy and led to the creation of 793 jobs.

The figures have been revealed in an Economic Impact Study report commissioned by Cricket Australia.

More than 813,000 tickets were sold for the Tests and one-day matches, and 37,000 overseas tourists visited Australia during the series.
