Description

When Andrew Strauss's team seized the world title in 2011 they finally recovered what had been lost at the Adelaide Oval in 1959. This tale of England's preceding triumph and fall from grace is recounted through the memoirs of many of the stars at a time when English cricket was hampered by controversy, snobbery and anachronistic fixations.
