Australia has been widely regarded as one of the toughest and most formidable cricket-playing nations over the years. But in 2018, Australian cricket went through one of its darkest phases. The team was embroiled in a headline-grabbing ball tampering scandal, which led to the suspension of star batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner.
The Test: A New Era, a new documentary series by Amazon Prime, takes us through the journey of the Australian team looking to regain respectability after facing outrage from cricket fans across the globe. From the first ever series defeat to India at home to eventually retaining the Ashes on English soil for the first time in 18 years, the series gives an inside look into the team’s highs and lows during its long road back. Cricket fans can also expect plenty of dressing room banter.
The Test: A New Era releases on Amazon Prime Video on March 11.
