Eleven Sussex CCC legends tell the stories behind their most memorable games for the county - enabling fans of all ages to relive these magic moments through the eyes and emotions of the men who were there, playing their hearts out for the club. Mushtaq Ahmed, Chris Adams and James Kirtley are among those who recall their contributions to memorable triumphs of the last decade, an era which has brought Sussex unprecedented success. Here are the inside stories of three County Championship victories, three memorable Lord's finals and three great games from Sussex's sepia-tinted past. Highlights include a game against Yorkshire in 1896, recalling the style of Kumar Shri Ranjitsinhji, global cricket's first superstar; Jim Parks Jr has pin-sharp memories of his father's benefit match at the very dawn of World War II, and Ian Gould reminisces about the 1986 Lord's triumph when 'Gunner' and his boys stole Lancashire's thunder.
