We have two copies of Gideon Haigh's day-by-day account of the 2010/11 Ashes series, due to be released on 1st February, to give away.

Most people gave England a modest chance of success. Some, like Glenn McGrath, insisted that history would repeat itself and Australia would administer another whitewash. What no-one anticipated was that the 2010-11 Ashes Tests would see one of the most complete performances ever by an England touring side and the first Ashes victory on Australian soil for 24 years, with, uniquely, three innings victories. It was a series full of remarkable records, and every member of the England side made crucial contributions.

Now, Gideon Haigh tells the full story of this amazing sporting achievement. Beginning with the build-up to the series - Australia going into it on the back of an uncharacteristic losing run, England after a year of quietly solid consolidation – he covers each Test, day by day, with pithy match reports and elegant analyses.

For your chance to win a copy, simply answer the question and enter your details in the form below. Standard Cricket World competition terms and conditions apply. The competition will close on 1st March 2011.

The 2010-11 Ashes series is the only one in which a team has won three Tests by innings margins and it was the first time England had scored 500 or more four times in a single series.
