Product description


"Unique behind-the-scenes access to England's women's cricket team during an Ashes summer makes for a gripping read." --Sport magazine

"A book that every cricket fan needs to read" --CricketHer

"A fascinating insight into not just the games, but the participants themselves. The book deserves to do well and is an engaging read, as one would expect from a writer of such experience. Full marks to Pitch Publishing in seeing its potential and helping to raise the stock of the women's game still further." --PeakFan's Derbyshire Cricket Blog

"David Tossell has again produced an excellent account which will allow the reader to learn that much more about the England Women's cricket team and I would urge anyone interested in women's cricket to pick it up."

"An ambitious and far-reaching project. Tossell immersed himself in his task, spending a great deal of time with the squad, getting to know the girls and the team's officials as well as watching the play. There is an analysis of the games, but the stories of the players, and how the game becoming professional has affected them, is the book's great strength."

"A most interesting and enjoyable book. The author accompanied the team for the whole year and, as time went on, clearly became very attached to all its members, sharing their successes and, ultimately, disappointment when the Ashes were lost. The fastest-growing women's sport begins to take hold of the public at large." --The Cricket Statistician

"So far this year Pitch have produced five new cricket titles. To describe them as ground breaking would risk an accusation of hyperbole, but they have all gone beyond what publishers would consider to be mainstream, and all are excellent."

About the Author

David Tossell is the author of 13 previous sports books, including five nominations in the British Sports Book Awards and two for the MCC/Cricket Society Book of the Year. A sports journalist for more than three decades, he has been the head of the NFL's public relations in Europe for the past 20 years.
