With Test reports, scorecards, Great bowlers of the year and other fascinating material from the archives, together with new editorial pieces, this is a remarkable record of cricket's most enduring battle. The book begins its journey with England's first tour of Australia in 1876 and the subsequent three series prior to the 1882 tour that led to a mock obituary being placed in the Sporting Times In affectionate remembrance of English cricket, which died at The Oval on 29th August, 1882. The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia. Celebrating the players who made their mark on the game and the controversies that shook the sport, the book covers every series since then through to the most recent series."@en ;
