The Ashes - The Greatest Series - 3 DVD Box Set
3 DVD, PAL, Region 2, Run Time: 14 Hours 50 Mins
ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA (2005)
Finally Victory for the England Team as they bring home the Ashes after 16 years. This DVD includes highlights from each of the 5 test matches with action from some of the great protagonists like Shane Warne and Freddie Flintoff. Includes some additional and previously unseen footage from the 2005 Ashes series.
This great production keeps the action flowing at a nice pace and gives just the right mix of excitement and detail without replaying every ball. As well as watching the cricket stars themselves, it is nice to again hear the elite cricket commentator of 50 years, Richie Benaud taking us through the action in his own masterful manner.
The 2005 Ashes Series turned out to be the most compelling, exciting and unpredictable cricket contest since Ian Botham almost single-handedly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in 1981. Twenty-four years on, and we have a new all-rounder to take the lion's share of the glory: Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff, whose fast-bowling undid the tourists throughout the series. Needless to say, however, it was not entirely a solo performance, with the series seeing sterling contributions from bowlers Matthew Hoggard and Steve Harmison, and some absolutely top notch batting from Andrew Strauss and a rampant Kevin Pietersen, who sealed Australia's fate in the final contest at The Oval with a masterful century.
Compelling, exciting, uplifting and a must for the serious cricket fan...
