About the Product

  • Cover story – Jo Harman’s exclusive interview with Sir Ian Botham forms the centrepiece of our new edition, an all-rounders special.
  • The ‘All-rounders Issue’ also includes Richard Heller’s stunning profile of Imran Khan, a chat with the trailblazing Enid Bakewell, as well as features on Ben Stokes, Sir Garfield Sobers, Jacques Kallis and the evergreen Darren Stevens. We also analyse which all-rounders are statistically the greatest to have graced Test cricket.
  • Tim Bresnan speaks to John Stern about his glory days with England, departure from Yorkshire and first forays into plumbing.
  • Ian Bishop talks to James Alder about his career on each side of the boundary rope.
  • We preview England Women’s forthcoming T20I series against West Indies by talking to breakthrough stars Sarah Glenn and Mady Villiers.
  • A special feature by Phil Walker on the tensions that exist within English coaching.
  • Poet and comedian Tim Key tackles the greatest series of them all in ‘My Golden Summer’.
  • Suresh Menon considers the legacy of MS Dhoni.
  • David Lloyd selects a team of Lancashire legends in ’The Greatest XI’.
  • Expert opinion from our columnists: Andrew Miller says we should revel in the mastery of James Anderson rather than fixating on what comes next, Elizabeth Ammon gives an appraisal of Colin Graves’ tenure as ECB chairman, and Zafar Ansari argues that English cricket risks alienating Jofra Archer by obsessing about his pace.
