Christopher Martin-Jenkins, who died yesterday of cancer at the age of 67, was widely admired as a Test match commentator for the BBC. As a mark of respect for his contribution to the game, I note here the books he wrote on Test series between England and Australia (though these do not constitute the whole of his published output by any means).
