The captain of the Australian team: a batsman on the way to being the greatest of all time. The star of the English team: an all-rounder breaking record after record. Both disgraced in enormous scandals of very different kinds. Both attempting a path to personal and professional redemption, through World Cups and county games. All culminating in a meeting of cricket's biggest rivalry: the 2019 Ashes. It was always going to be a summer to remember. The follow-up to Geoff Lemon's multi-award-winning Steve Smith's Men is an equally insightful, thrilling and sharply observed take on the cricketing world, with a cast of finely drawn characters, vivid backdrops and a series of incredible events, both on and off the field.
