The Ashes is the ultimate prize in cricket. These series, played between Australia and England, have been going since the 1880s and now approach the crucial 70th meeting between the two teams with results spread evenly. Respected cricket writer Barry Nicholls takes a pop culture look at the history of the contests, with essential facts, records and trivia listed. Nicholls choses ‘Facebook’ moments, twitter facts and Instagram images to appeal to a modern audience.

All the great names are here … Bradman, Chappell, Lillee, Marsh, Border, Waugh and Warne … as well as overviews and stats of almost 70 cricket contests. Barry Nicholls’ Pocket History of Cricket’s Ashes Contests is bound to appeal to all cricket fans and become an argument settler in the years ahead.
