The Ashes: A Celebration

The Ashes, A Celebration

A celebration of the Ashes series since that first match in March 1877, when an Australian team beat England at the MCG in the first ever international cricket match. From Grace to Warne; from Bradman to Botham; from the 1882 thriller at the Oval to the scintillating MCG Centenary Test of 1977; from the low point of the infamous Bodyline series to the spectacular 2005 series in England; and cycle of Australian dominance followed by humiliation that was ended in the historic Australian victory in 2014 - it is all captured in THE ASHES. Both authoritative and accessible, it will appeal to both the serious cricket fan and sports lovers everywhere. This revised edition has been updated to include coverage of the 2015 series, this is a must-have for cricket fans.
