About this deal

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERSHORTLISTED FOR SPORTS AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR AT THE 2020 TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS. Ben Stokes tells the story of England's electrifying first ever Cricket World Cup triumph, as well as this summer's momentous Ashes Test series, in the ultimate insider's account of the most nerve-shredding but riveting three-and-a-half months in English cricket history. Written' for the potential income I think which Ben may need given the current state of the 2023 Ashes series.

On Fire is Ben Stokes’ brand new book, and in it he tells the story of England’s electrifying first ever Cricket World Cup triumph, as well as this summer’s momentous Ashes Test series.Hachette Australia acknowledges and pays our respects to the past, present and future Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Stokes took a career-best 6 wickets for 99 runs in the first innings of the 5th Test, including the major wickets of captain Clarke for 10 and top-scorer for the innings Steve Smith for 115. In June 2022, Stokes started his captaincy with the 3–0 clean sweep of New Zealand cricket team in England in 2022, He scored 194 runs in 5 innings at an average of 48. It would have been the same with On Fire had it not been the case that, three years ago, I did pick up Ben Stokes’ early autobiography, Firestarter, and for the reasons set out in my review of that one had a pleasant surprise. He was named as England's player of the series as he ended the series as England's top run-scorer with 441 runs with 2 hundreds and 2 fifties, while also taking 8 wickets. For both the final and his wonderful innings at Headingly for the Ashes, it was great to get his perspective on the events as they happened and I even found myself getting emotional all over again, especially for the winning victory for the final at Lords.Stokes moved to England at the age of 12 [4] after his father was appointed head coach of Workington Town rugby league club, and grew up in the small West Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, attending Cockermouth School and playing cricket for Cockermouth Cricket Club. On the one hand, you feel that it's being written for an audience which is probably more impressed by stardom than it would be by the mechanics of what goes on behind great sporting feats of derring do. Couldn’t put the book down, brought back many memories of watching England playing unbelievable cricket in 2019 and was great to hear it from one of the top performers of the years own words. p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice. During the second ODI match of the series against Australia, Stokes was given out obstructing the field.
