Gideon Haigh's book on the triumphant 2005 Ashes series was lauded by readers and critics alike, being hailed by The Times as 'High-quality journalism that crackles with sparky insight'. Having covered the entirety of the 2009 series for The Times and the online Cricinfo magazine, Haigh draws on a wealth of first-hand observations and experiences rivalled by perhaps none other than the players themselves. Featuring day-by-day accounts of the play in every Test match during the 2009 Ashes series, The Ultimate Test constitutes an analysis unparalleled in its scope and clarity from one of the wittiest, most erudite and acclaimed writers on the modern game. The book features eight pages of dramatic, full-colour photography from each of the 2009 Test matches.
