Book Description

For all the glamour and new-found wealth that has come to cricket thanks to the IPL, the sport has rarely faced such an uncertain future. The gold standard of cricket - Test matches - is being sidelined in some countries by the shorter forms of the game. While the sport is being transformed, administrators are struggling to keep pace with it all. Yet, despite all of this, the sport's essential elements remain in place: great games are played, new stars rise up and old stars step back and retire.
In this new collection of writing, Gideon Haigh takes the pulse of the game today, and in particular looks at the decline of the sport in Australia, where the once all-conquering men in the 'baggy green' suddenly found themselves struggling to impose themselves on their opponents.


Product Description

Review

'Beyond the obvious ways of engaging with and participating in the game, one of the best ways to celebrate Test cricket would be to read Gideon Haigh. A clearer and fairer account of what the game has to offer would be very hard to find' All Out Cricket

'Gideon Haigh is one of our finest cricket writers and
Ashes to Ashes, a blow-byblow account of the 2013-14 back to back Ashes series, is bursting with insights and a telling analysis of how triumph turned to disaster for the England cricket team' --Choice Magazine
