There is nothing quite like an Ashes summer, and the 1997 Test series between England and Australia once again fired the imagination of cricket followers familiar with the recent history of these enthralling encounters.
Coming into the series, Australia were riding high on the back of six straight series wins, including defeats of West Indies and South Africa, in which they reconfirmed their status as the world's best Test playing team. Meanwhile, a revitalised England, fresh from a successful tour of New Zealand and with a new administration at the helm, were seeking to re-establish themselves among the elite Test playing nations with victory over their old adversaries.
'Ashes Summer' is not only the first joint account of an Ashes series by participating players, it is the first insider's view of what has been an action-packed, engrossing series. Nasser Hussain and Steve Waugh, key players on each side, take us behind the scenes in the respective camps, unravelling the build up to and defining moments of each Test. Their fly-on-the-wall diary provides a thought-provoking insight into the players, the management and the decisions, both critical and controversial, that have helped shape the series.
From the shrewd and instinctive captaincy of Mark Taylor to the fighting spirit of Mike Atherton, 'Ashes Summer' relives the drama and excitement of the ultimate in cricket contests.About the Author:
Nasser Hussain made his debut Test hundred for England at Edgbaston in 1996. His career-best 207 against Australia in this summer’s first Ashes Test at the same venue established him as one of the key members of the England Test team. Vice-captain on the 1996-97 tour to Zimbabwe and New Zealand, he is a player whom many believe will be the future England Test captain. This is his first book.
