    Don't care tbh (as opposed to the heaps of people that want to see them in Australia). The fact that they could be destroyed in transit is a pretty strong argument for leaving them in England.

    it should stay in england 1 because EBC doesnt even own it MCC does and 2. something could have to it(get stolen, get destroyed, ect)...it should be like its now....a crystal replica of the the ashes....and even if the MCC were to let it travel than it should be in a bulletproof glass box so it stays preseved....

    yes im aware of that but people are saying the fragile of the "trophy" when travelling, but its just another reason for keeping the ashes in australia besides the fact that they are dominating , they have won the ashes

    Yeah, they're in Australia at the moment doing a tour around the country so Aussies get a chance to see the urn.

    It should stay at the winning nation. I mean if it needs to go to another country than have someone holding it all the way.

    Yeah, they're on tour in Australia. From the CA website:

    The original Ashes Urn is being exhibited around the country this summer as part of this summer's cricket festivities. The tour marks only the third time in history that the Ashes Urn has left the MCC Museum at Lord’s and the first time it has ever toured around Australia. Many of the other exhibition’s artefacts are being exhibited away from Lord’s for the first time.

    The Ashes Exhibition in association with Travelex has been designed to coincide with the upcoming and highly anticipated 3 mobile Ashes Series.
