Ashes Victory: The Official Story of the Greatest Ever Test Series in the Team's Own Words Description.

Written from the viewpoint of the changing room and the middle of the pitch, Team England's Ashes Diary is a blow-by-blow account of England's progress in the most dramatic Ashes series in history. With England's improvement under Michael Vaughan, the 2005 Ashes series was eagerly anticipated by all sports fans; all tickets were sold out months in advance.

The first day at Lord's saw Australia spectacularly bowled out for just 190, and then England were 92 for 7 in reply. It seemed as though we'd seen one of the greatest days of Test cricket ever. In fact, it was only the beginning of a remarkable series . . . England went on to lose that match, before winning the second Test by 2 runs (the closest Ashes victory in history), drawing the third (when they failed to dismiss Australia's last pair), and then winning the fourth amid scenes of unbearable tension to go into the last Test with an unbeatable 2-1 series lead.

In this fascinating inside account, the players reveal their emotions at key moments, and explain how they set about taking on the formidable Aussies.

Packed with brilliant photographs of the best action and behind-the-scenes moments, this is a book that all who have thrilled to cricket this summer will want to keep and treasure for years to come.

External Reviews

"Most post-Ashes books are pretty humdrum . . . one book does stand out. The skill is in the retelling of the action through so many different voices." - The Independent on Sunday.

"A handsome, well-written account . . . articulate and revealing. The linking prose is literate to a degree remarkable in a book about sport. This book is a document to be preserved about an often agonising drama." - The Spectator.
