What did Don Bradman say as he turned to walk back to the pavilion at The Oval in 1948, having been dismissed for a duck in his final innings and thus denied a Test average of 100? A lesser man might have let slip at least one profanity, but The Don apparently restricted himself to a mere "Fancy that!"

From The Oval in 1882 to Adelaide in 2006 and all points between, Huw Turbervill chronicles in loving detail his personal highlights of the periodic clashes between cricket's greatest rivals, England and Australia. His narrative is sprinkled with the recollections of participants such as Greg Chappell and Ray Illingworth, and with anecdotes such as that of Bradman's verbal restraint. Ian Botham, says Turbervill, claims to this day that the captaincy in the 1981 series did not affect his playing form, despite plentiful evidence to the contrary; George Hirst and Wilfred Rhodes apparently denied that Hirst ever said in 1902 "We'll get 'em in singles", wrecking the illusions of this reviewer, for one.

But at least Fred "The Demon" Spofforth actually did exclaim in 1882, faced with Australia's apparent inevitable defeat, "This thing can be done!" And it was - and so the Ashes were born.

Over the years, this fiercest of all cricket rivalries has produced many mighty battles and heroic individual cameos - so picking just 10 matches would be an unenviable task (apart from a couple of obvious "must-haves"). I was personally disappointed that "Laker's match" of 1956 was not included, nor the peak drama of the Bodyline series, but that is the nature of "best of" compilations - you will never satisfy everyone.
