Downed Under: The Ashes in Australia 2006-2007: 2006-7 by Gideon Haigh
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Gideon Haigh's "Ashes 2005" sold 15,000 copies, was hailed as one of the best books on this historic series and - in conjunction with his coverage of the series in the "Guardian" - confirmed him as one the finest modern writers on the game. It was runner-up for the National Sports Book Awards Best Biography 2005, and singled out for particular praise by the judges. Now, as England go to Australia this winter to defend the Ashes they won so memorably, Haigh will be covering the series once again and writing the definitive book on it for Aurum. It will unquestionably be the sporting event of the winter, with Warne, McGrath and Ponting yearning for revenge against Pietersen, Flintoff and Vaughan, and is likely to be a desperately close-run thing between two evenly-matched sides once again. Once again Aurum will publish just a month after the end of the final Test, in a small-format hardback edition.

Author Biography
