Description

Throughout the 1980s, England lurched between the highs of Ashes victories and the lows of on-field humiliation and a series of controversies involving tabloid scandals, South African rebel tours and Pakistani umpires. From World Cup Final to Windies whitewashes under ten different captains, this was English cricket's most chaotic decade.
