This updated version of the best-selling Little Book of Ashes is being launched to tie in with the current summer Test series against India, the number one team in the world. Updated by the editorial team behind the country's leading independent cricket magazine, All Out Cricket, the 128-page fully illustrated gift book contains all the highlights of the recent five-match series. Among the magic moments were double centuries from Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen, as well as Mike Hussey's record-breaking run of scores and Peter Siddle's first match hat-trick. The Little Book of Ashes traces the history of the Anglo-Australian rivalry right back to the days of Grace and Spofforth and the great Test match of 1882 in which both men took part. It was the match that included the famous mock obituary mourning the death of English cricket, which concluded with the idea that the “body” would be cremated and the ashes taken back to Australia—and the legendary bi-annual series began.

This summer's Ashes was another unforgettable instalment in the oldest and greatest rivalry in international sport. From the thrilling denouement at Trent Bridge, when Australia came within 19 runs of an incredible victory, to the stunning spell of hostile fast bowling from Stuart Broad in Durham and England's frantic run-chase in the gloom at the Oval in pursuit of an historic 4-0 series victory, the series was never less than engrossing. And - as always in an Ashes summer - there was as much intrigue off the field. David Warner made himself the English public's favourite pantomime villain by taking a swing at Joe Root before a ball was bowled, controversy raged over the standards of umpiring and the use of the Decision Review System while Darren Lehmann stoked the fires ahead of the return series Down Under with his infamous radio rant at Broad. The Daily and Sunday Telegraph's unbeatable team of cricket writers were present through the 2013 series to deliver the definitive account of events. Derek Pringle, Paul Hayward, Scyld Berry, Simon Hughes, Jim White, Steve James and Nick Hoult dissected events with forensic detail, and former captains Michael Vaughan and Geoffrey Boycott, together with Australian spinning legend Shane Warne, set the agenda with their hard-hitting columns. So, as you tick off the days to the first Test in Brisbane, relive the splendour of Ian Bell's three centuries, Ashton Agar's record-breaking debut, Root's stunning innings at Lord's and the spectacular bowling of Graeme Swann and James Anderson, as chronicled in the pages of the Daily and Sunday Telegraph.
