Spare a thought for the average cricket fan compelled to follow every bouncing, spinning, bat-beating ball of the third Ashes series inside two years - that's a lot of cricket watching!
Fortunately help is on hand in the shape of the Men's Health Forum's Ashes Survival Guide.
The guide, which features the wisdom of, amongst others, Viv Richards, Shane Warne and Derek Randall, includes:
- what to eat
- what to drink
- how to keep active
- how to rest and
- how to survive a whitewash
Can you afford to watch this test series without it?
