Beginning with Sri Lanka?top End tour to Australia in June 2004, the Ashes Diary 2005 takes us through Ponting?stint playing county cricket for Somerset in England, as well as the Videocon Cup and ICC Champions trophy. Ponting takes us behind the headlines for the Australians?ictorious test tour of India, the tours of New Zealand and Pakistan in Australia, the tsunami match, the VB Series with the West Indies and Pakistan, and the test and one-day tour of New Zealand that also included the first twenty20 international. But it was the Australians?our of England in the northern summer of 2005 that caused the most drama, and Ponting does not back down from discussing the failures in form that led to the loss of the Ashes. At the same time he reflects on the dramatic tie in the NatWest Series and victory in the NatWest Challenge, and pays tribute to the efforts of so many great players in his team. Out of this memorable year of cricket comes the ultimate insider?record of what went right, what went wrong, and why the Australian cricket team is still an almighty force to be reckoned with on the world stage.
