With Test reports, scorecards, "great bowlers of the year," and other fascinating material from the archives--together with new editorial pieces--Wisden on the Ashes: The Authoritative Story of Cricket's Greatest Rivalry will be a welcome addition to all cricket enthusiasts' collections.

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 from then to today. In 2005, England won a highly competitive series that helped raise the popularity of the sport, and each series since then has attracted huge attention.

This updated edition includes both 2013 series, which saw England retain the Ashes on home soil before Australia won all five Tests in the second series later that year, and the summer 2015 series held in England. It also includes a color photo section celebrating the players, the matches, and the key moments from an ongoing rivalry.
