Australia's fifth Golden Age began following the defeat of the West Indies in 1995 by Mark Taylor's team, but the seeds had been laid a few years before...

In A Golden Age, universally respected commentator and former Australian cricket captain Ian Chappell brings together a collection of his articles written on the Australian cricket team and their international opponents over the last 20 years. From the late 1980s to the present day, Ian has witnessed the development of an extraordinarily successful Australian team, so successful in fact that he sees them representing a fifth Golden Age of Australian cricket. In this collection he charts their rise, and expertly examines the defining styles of the world's cricket captains and their teams, as well as controversial issues such as match-fixing, and the impact of technology on the game.

As a perceptive commentator Ian's views and opinions are injected with the same honesty and directness that characterised his playing days. Written with inimitable passion and flair, he gives us a taste of some of the best cricket played around the world in the past two decades and shows us exactly why Australia has proved so dominant in this era.
