“163 to win – we’ve got this! Come on!”
Former professional cricketer Jack gives his team talk, but wickets fall like a ticking time bomb and the anecdotes from the ashes of his career prove less than inspirational…
As Jack addresses the audience as his ‘team’ so Jack’s Ashes offers a humorous insight into the mental frailties that can cloud the mind and the distractions that can lead to ruin.
Performed by Tim Marriott (BBCTV's The Brittas Empire) with recorded contributions from Lancashire, England and Sky Sports’ legend David 'Bumble' Lloyd, Aussie all-rounder Shane Watson, commentator Robert 'Crash' Craddock and others from the cricket world.
