In a special episode of A Sporting Discussion, Andrew and AJ speak to author Martin Lenehan about his book 'The Ashes'
Martin Lenehan is a sports writer and author who was formerly editor of Inside Edge magazine. He has covered the game in print and on radio for more than 25 years. He is also the author of ‘110 Years of Rugby League’ and ‘Baggy Green Legends’.
His book 'The Ashes: 140 Years of Rivalry, Rituals and Respect' is a collection of behind-the-scenes stories and hundreds of images showcasing the skill and talent of the men and women who play for their country and the history, prestige and rivalry of the clashes between Australia and the old enemy, England.
The foreword of the book is written by Ian Healy, one of Australia’s finest glovemen, and Martin spoke to a huge number of Aussie cricketing greats including Greg Chappell, Doug Walters, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazelwood, Mike Hussey and Christina Matthews.
It's a great chat about one of Australian sport's most enduring and stirring contests!
