All Out Cricket Mag (2011)

This one’s a bit special. With the urn safely stowed away for another couple of years, we look back at the very best bits of a momentous series, which saw records and Australians tumble in equal measure, 13 Englishmen elevated to demigod status and the ghosts of past tours finally laid to rest.

While most of his team-mates are still slogging it out Down Under, Alastair Cook speaks to Andy Afford about batting Australia into oblivion, Phil Walker gets to stand in the shadow of Chris Tremlett, and Ed Davis profiles Tim Bresnan, the likely lad who won the Ashes. There’s also a fascinating look at the future of the Vegemite of Australian cricket: captain-elect, Michael Clarke.

We’ve also put together everything you need to know about the World Cup… After all, you’re going to need something to keep you going during 43 days of competition. It’s going to be a feat of endurance for everyone involved, but after last year’s T20 success England are in the mix to make it to the later stages – you can follow all the fun and games on our Facebook page.

Elsewhere, Hampshire boss Rod Bransgrove casts his eye over a flourishing domestic game and urges it to be even better; the ECB’s performance-magus Simon Timson tells us how he’s going to produce the next generation of Ashes winners; Marcus Trescothick looks back on the definitive moments of his brilliant career; regular columnist Rob Key writes in praise of Paul Collingwood, and Captain Slog just can’t stop thinking about cricket.

Add in a Hogg roasting, ten slices of Onions and more jelly than you can shake a stick at, and you’ve got another three-course meal, ready and waiting to be devoured.
