'Gripping' Roger Alton, Sunday Times
The inside story of how England transformed the way Test cricket is played.

For 145 years, Test cricket had been played mainly in one way, but the old ways weren't working. After one win in 17 by the start of the summer of 2022, England needed something new.

Then came 'Bazball', driven by new head coach Brendon ('Baz') McCullum and captain Ben Stokes. They embarked on a brand of Test cricket that breathed life into an ailing format, breaking records as they began by winning 11 out 13 games. The once rudderless and ridiculed England Test team soon became cricket's most talked-about phenomenon.

Told via a mixture of interviews with the protagonists and ringside reporting, Bazball is an unmissable read, marking one of the most thrilling revolutions in any sport. Updated to include England's challenging tour of India, this new edition looks ahead to the next era of Bazball.
