An updated and expanded edition of Rob Smyth's rollicking history of Anglo-Australian loathing on the cricket field, including three new pieces to cover the topsy-turvy Ashes series of 2015. Gentlemen and Sledgers charts the ebb and flow of Anglo-Australian cricketing fortunes across 131 years and 314 matches by telling the stories behind 100 memorable Ashes quotations. Examples of the dark art of sledging - and even the occasional considered cricketing judgement. Evoking memorable moments and matches as well as highs and lows in the careers of Australia and England's greatest players, Gentlemen and Sledgers is an informal, freewheeling, discursive and entertainingly opinionated history of the Ashes.
