Description

When England won the Ashes in the summer of 2005, viewing figures for cricket reached the unprecedented level of 8.4 million. Now Andrew Flintoff's team set off to achieve what no England team has done since Mike Gatting's side in 1986-87 and retain the Ashes. With fitness worries dogging both sides in the run-up to the series, picking a winner for this eagerly anticipated clash could not be more difficult. The Australians' pride was badly dented by their defeat in 2005, and they will be eager to redeem themselves. England players will be desperate to prove it was no fluke against the best side in the world. Ashes Down Under will tell the story from the players' own viewpoint so that the reader is with them every step of the way to understand exactly what was going on at the key moments of the five-Test series. Packed with stunning photographs of the best moments of the series, and wonderful behind-the-scenes shots, this book will be a permanent record of one of cricket's greatest events.show more
