Ashes Bibliography 2005 Series.

The 2005 Ashes series was the cricketing highlight of 2005. It was the latest edition of the long-standing cricket rivalry between England and Australia.It started on 21 July 2005 and finished on 12 September 2005. In the series England and Australia played five Tests, with the Ashes held by Australia as the most recent holders. The final result was a 2–1 series win for England, who succeeded, for the first time since 1986-87, in their  attempt to win the urn.

In March, Australia's captain, Ricky Ponting, said that this Ashes series would be the closest since Australia's dominance began in 1989. Since 1989, when Australia started their winning Ashes streak, England had only come within one match of the title once, in 1997:  Australia were still top-ranked, but England had won 14 and drawn three of their 18 previous Test matches since March 2004, and had won six successive series.

Nonetheless, before the First Test some Australians, including fast bowler Glenn McGrath, were suggesting that a 5–0 win in the series. As it turned out, individual matches were very closely fought, with one match decided by a two-run margin, one match drawn with only one wicket remaining, and one match won by three wickets. The outcome of the contest was not decided until the very last day of the series.

Australia won the first Test comfortably, but the second Test saw England level the series with a two-run victory, the narrowest win in Ashes history. The third Test ended in a draw and England won the fourth Test  at Trent Bridge by three wickets. The fifth and final Test started on 8 September, at the Oval,it entered its final day with England batting in their second innings, 40 runs ahead with nine wickets in hand. Australia needed a win to force a 2–2 series draw and retain the Ashes; any other result would give the Ashes to England and end 16 years and eight series of Australian dominance. After a day of fluctuations,  England established a lead of 341 after Kevin Pietersen's maiden century, and Australia batted for one over before the teams went off for bad light, the stumps were pulled out of the ground, and the match was declared a draw to ensure the return of the Ashes to England.

The BBC reported on the day after the series that it was "hailed as the most thrilling series ever"

A great addition to any collector of Signed Cricket  memorabilia. Lovely signed cricket programmes from the thrilling test match at Trent Bridge during the 2005 Ashes series.
