175 colour photographs. The Ashes reached new levels of excitement in 2005, with England's priceless win under Michael Vaughan's leadership, and Freddy Flintoff and co's determination to end Australian domination of the past 18 years. One man who kept the Australians in the series, right up until the last day of the final test match at the Oval, was their talismanic leg bowler Shane Warne. Quite simply, Warne is the finest cricketer ever to play the game, and acknowledged as such by his contemporaries and commentators alike. With over 600 test match victims, he managed to take 40 wickets against England, but still ended up on the losing team. Putting the torrid tales of his private life aside, Warne always lets his spinning do the talking for him, becoming the scourge of many international batsmen. Now, for the first time, we provide a superb biographical account of his career in pictures, with commentary from the great man himself. Supported with photographs from his own personal collection, plus superb professional photography of his key moments in first class cricket.
