The Official MCC Story of the Ashes is the perfect way to celebrate cricket's most fiercely contested series. As well as giving a running history of the series, special features are interspersed, highlighting some of the legends from each team, the controversies and the media. This latest edition, published in the lead-up to the 2017-18 Ashes series, includes a feature on the 2015 series in England which ended 3-2 to the hosts, but only after some nerve-shredding moments.
From the late 19th century, England and Australia have met twice every four years and since 1882, the prize for the series winners has been a tiny urn, purportedly containing the ashes of a bail burned after England had lost at The Oval.
