At the end of the notable final Test Match at the Oval in 1953, when England regained the Ashes sfter so many years, several Australian newspaper correspondents persuaded Miss Hughes to visit Australia because they were certain that she would see England beaten there. The Long Hop is the story of the experiences of an average spectator – one who sees most of her sport in England from the terraces and the unreserved seats – it tells how she sought and was given the oppertunity by the Sydney Telegraph to cover the Tests, of her Voyage to Australia, her views of the country, the cricket grounds, the cities and the people.
