Australia won the 1921 Ashes series held in England. They won the first three matches against England, which meant that they had won eight in succession, an unequalled sequence in Ashes Tests, following the 5-0 drubbing they had administered to England in the 1920-21 season in Australia. The last two matches of the Test series were drawn.

In addition to the Test matches, the Australian team played first-class matches against all the major teams in England, plus some less important matches. In all, they played 38 matches, winning 22 of them, drawing 14 and losing just twice, both times towards the end of the season.
