Here on cricket betting blog I have put together a selection of books and DVDs about cricket that I find interesting, and to start with, as an England fan I have selected winning Ashes series DVDs as my favourite viewing.
Not many to choose from over the last 20 years or so. The most recent is The 2009 series Ashes victory, The official story on DVD
After the rain affected draw at Edgbaston, England were then thrashed at Headingley. Then the final Test at the Oval, Ian Bell set up England’s 1st innings total with a hard fought 72, before Stuart Broad’s inspired spell of bowling and Jonathan Trott’s maiden century finished the job and won England the Ashes.
Before that was arguably the greatest test series ever, certainly in my time of watching cricket. The next DVD is the The 2005 Ashes, 3 disc box set,
Including action from the Aussies win at Lord’s. The unbelievable 2nd Test from Edgbaston. The Aussies celebrating a draw at Old Trafford, then England taking the momentum to Trent Bridge and taking a 2-1 lead. Finally the remarkable scenes at the Oval after Kevin Pietersen’s brilliant hundred saved the match and won the series for England.
