Ashes to Ashes free pdf Gideon Haigh, Australia's best cricket writer, analyses and captures the drama of every day's play in the historic double Ashes series of 20130-14. Between July 2013 and January 2014 Test cricket's original rivals, Australia and England, played out their ultimate showdown: ten Test matches, five on each side of the world. The result was a sporting epic, contests of gruelling intensity in front of packed houses from start to finish, with the Ashes prised from England's grip of more than four years as Australia turned initial disarray into outright dominance. How did Australia go from a 0-3 failure away to a 5-0 triumph at home? Gideon Haigh saw every ball bowled - a sportswriting odyssey in itself - and Ashes to Ashes collects his first-hand reporting from both hemispheres of this unrepeatable experience.
