Since he inherited the captaincy in 2003, Vaughan has been instrumental in transforming England from perennial underachievers into a team capable of taking on – and beating – the best in the world. Under Vaughan;s captaincy, England achied a record-braking eight successive Test match victories during 2004, beating New Zealand 3-0, the West Indies 4-0, and winning the first match of the winter tour to South Africa.


Of course, all this was eclipsed by the Ashes series that following it – a thrilling contest that captured the imagination of millions around the world.

Focusing on the art of leadership, Calling the Shots takes us inside the mind of the test captain, exposing the highly pressurised world of international cricket like never before. Michael Vaughan shares for the first time his thoughts on tactics, decision-making and man-management, granting the reader unprecedented access to the England dressing room as Vaughan’s men achieved their remarkable run of success. With the insider’s account of England’s victorious 2005 Ashes campaign at its heart, Calling the Shots is the definitive, inspirational story of how English cricket was made great again.
