A day-by-day, blow-by-blow account of last year's Ashes victory, the greatest cricket series ever played - as told, we are told, by the 'Team England Player Partnership'. Literally, each day of each Test is recalled in chronological order as we re-live the Series with the players themselves. If you want a full record of a great sporting contest, this is for you. Each Test is played out in detail in its own chapter with a sub-section for each day and the full scorecard at the end. And there are some great photos. This will be a great book for the grandchildren to treasure when we are all ashes.

Synopsis

Ashes Victory by The England Cricket Team

Team England's Ashes Victory is a blow-by-blow account of England's progress in the most dramatic Ashes series in history, from the players own viewpoint.

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 superb, must-have book for everyone who enjoyed the most exciting Ashes series in history.
