The Ashes of 2009 was a gripping, up and down and tense affair. After many twists and turns, England finally overcame Australia on a glorious summer evening at the Oval. Ashes Summer is written by Peter Hayter, Chief Cricket Correspondent of the Mail on Sunday, from the viewpoint of the England team: both from behind the scenes in the dressing room and out on the crease, and featuring the full input of Andrew Strauss's squad, including Andrew Flintoff in his last ever Test series, and new England heroes Stuart Broad and Jonathan Trott. From the first-ever test in Cardiff, through glory at Lord's, the rain at Edgbaston, and disaster at Headingley, a historic summer reaches a fitting climax in south London. Ashes Summer will be released in September.
