Books Info:

The Ultimate Test: The Oval free pdf THIS is the place where the first Test match on English soil took place and the Ashes were invented. THIS is the ground on which Phil Tufnell delivered his mesmerising spin to win Tests against the Windies in the 1990s. THIS pitch witnessed the final emotional Test appearances of Jack Hobbs (1930) and Don Bradman (1948). THIS is where Jessop's extraordinary 75-minute century snatched an improbable Test victory from the Australians in 1902. David Mortimer looks at every Test match played at The Oval since the first in 1880. Full scorecards and match reports for every game are brought alive by the words of those who played, watched and organised some of the greatest ever Tests. David Mortimer has talked to some of the many great players who played at The Oval - including Pat Pocock, Alec and Eric Bedser, Raman Subba Row - and begins his book with a history of this famous ground.
