This brand new edition of the hugely successful Ashes Miscellany celebrates the rich history of one of the oldest and greatest rivalries in sport. It has been expanded, revised and updated to include England’s tremendous victories in the 2009 and 2010/11 Ashes series.

Packed with facts, figures, lists, quotes and anecdotes...from the legend of the burning of the bails in 1882 to England's amazing triumph in Australia in 2011, from WG Grace and Don Bradman’s tremendous batting feats to Laker’s 19 wicket match, and includes information on the lighter side of the rivalry, such as David Boon's Ashes record of drinking 58 beers on the flight from Sydney to London!

It was a delight to find that The Ashes Miscellany is a return to the well-researched and entertaining kind of book that made the genre so popular in the first place. The contents will appeal to both those who consider themselves well versed in Ashes history and casual cricket fans who want trivia to impress their friends in the pub. It would have been too easy to pad the book with well-worn anecdotes and page-filling statistics, but Clive Batty has avoided that short cut and produced a genuinely good publication.
