Storyline

From The Ashes is an uplifting and remarkable tale of a summer that changed English sport forever. In July 1981, rioting and discontent ruled the streets of England. 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. Watching on was opposing Captain, Kim Hughes, the Golden Boy of Australian sport. Brilliant and eloquent, he seemed to be a master of the universe. With English cricket on the brink, bookmakers offered odds of 500-1 against an English win in the 3rd test. Yet, 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, Gower, Willis, Marsh, Hughes and more - From The Ashes is set over one tempestuous month and tells the story of one of the most ...

Absolute treat
22 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I belong to a generation which has not seen Botham play. I've grown up watching the next generation, watching Flintoff being compared to Botham, and wondering who is he anyway. Well, here you go. If you, like me, had seen England doing miracles in 2005, and thought such things were once in a lifetime, this is for you. If you love cricket, and think that cricket is a funny game, this is for you. If you love heroes, and love to hear stories of a phoenix rising from the ashes, this is for you. If you love watching the English win over the Aussies, this is for you! What a brilliant portrayal. Sporting achievements are fleeting, but the recollections last forever. And wouldn't you like to recollect one of the finest test series ever played?
