Last summer two teams came together in a sport still seen by many in this country as boring and personified by old men being "frightfully nice" and eating cucumber sandwiches. By the end of it, it had enticed a whole nation into it's hypnotic spell, as well as being a unique sporting event...

The greatest ever Test Series bar none. The 2005 series between England and Australia was one of the closest, most keenly contested set of contests in the history of cricket. Having endured eighteen years of suffering at the hands of several ruthless Australian units, despite all the hype and...

Who can ever forget the magnificent 2005 Ashes series. The Australians came into the series having held the Ashes since 1987, could England finally release their grip this time round.

Being a cricket fan, this dvd was a must for me. But before i bought it, i didnt think it was going to be as great as it turned out to be. I thought that the 'highlights' would be just the wickets and the boundaries. However, it shows a lot more than that. It shows a lot of cricket play from each...
