THE TIMES ON THE ASHES


THE TIMES ON THE ASHES

EDITED BY RICHARD WHITEHEAD    Book Number: 90844    Product format: Paperback

A superb history of cricket's greatest rivalry from 1877 to the present day, the book showcases great batsmen like Bradman, Ponting, Gower, Trumper, Boycott and Greg Chappell, and the great bowlers Trueman, Warne, Larwood, Lillee, Underwood, McGrath and Anderson, along with the great captains such as Brearley, Ian Chappell, Vaughan, Armstrong, Jardine, Steve Waugh and Hutton. England against Australia for the Ashes is one of the oldest and greatest rivalries in sport and almost its entire history has been covered in The Times. Here is the whole story from Shane Warne's ball of the century in 1993 to Gilbert Jessop's power hitting at The Oval in 1902, from the infamous Bodyline Tour of 1932-33 to England's surrender to the pace of Lillee and Thomson in 1974-75; from Len Hutton's Coronation-year triumph in 1953 to the long years of defeat before the Ashes were finally recaptured in 2005. Dozens of archive photos throughout the text, two columns per page, clear headers, facsimiles of newspaper headlines and 16 pages of colour and mono photos. Large softback, 383pp.
