From The Ashes
From The Ashes is the uplifting and remarkable sporting tale of a summer that changed England forever. In July 1981, rioting and discontent ruled the streets. On the playing fields, England was 1-0 down after two tests against old enemy, Australia, and iconic all-rounder Ian Botham, had resigned as English captain, hours before being pushed.
With English cricket on the brink, bookmakers offered odds of 500-1 against an English win in the 3rd test. Yet, a determined Botham would not lie down and rediscovered his cavalier flair in a series of remarkable, match-winning performances that defined him and saw The Ashes returned home.
Packed with match action and interviews with the chief protagonists including Botham, David Gower, Mike Brearley, Bob Willis, Rod Marsh, Australian captain Kim Hughes and more From The Ashes is set over one tempestuous month and tells the evocative story of one of sport s greatest ever comebacks.
