The Cricketer Anthology of the Ashes is OUT NOW!

This superb anthology showcases 100 years of peerless writing on the Ashes from The Cricketer magazine. Insightful new contributions from today’s best cricket writers including Gideon Haigh, Simon Hughes and Huw Turbervill sit alongside vintage reports, features and comment pieces from greats including Pelham ‘Plum’ Warner, EW Swanton and Christopher Martin-Jenkins.

Relive the brilliance of Don Bradman, Harold Larwood, Jim Laker, Geoffrey Boycott, Ian Botham, Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Andrew Flintoff and others in this fresh new take on the giants of the game. Featuring Simon Hughes’ ultimate Ashes XI, Gideon Haigh’s five greatest series and James Coyne's lively detours into the controversies and scandals which have defined sport’s greatest contest, this definitive history from the world’s foremost cricket magazine is as colourful as the Ashes themselves.

Jamie Crawley has provided an entertaining section of editorials and letters, and the book includes an unrivalled statistics package, and some wonderful pictures from past magazines. There are also articles from Bill Bowes, Tony Lewis, Brian Johnston, John Arlott, Jonathan Agnew, Mark Nicholas and Richard Hadlee. It is the perfect companion to this winter’s eagerly anticipated series.
