Ashes 2005 — The Greatest Test Series - Gideon Haigh

Aurum Press, 2005, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The moment Steve Harmison’s second ball lifted to hit Justin Langer on the elbow at Lord’s it was clear this would be an Ashes summer to remember. But it turned out to be the most tumultuous Test series of all, with England regaining the Ashes lost back in 1989. After England’s heavy defeat in the first Test, these two sides fought each other to a standstill, in a succession of epic battles with nail biting finishes in front of sell-out crowds: victory for England by 2 runs at Edgbaston; McGrath and Lee holding out for a draw at Old Trafford; England scraping a 3-wicket win at Trent Bridge, and a last day at the Oval that right up to tea could have gone either way.”
