About the Product

In the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly our cover story is English cricket’s 21 ‘disruptors’ of the 21st century. There’s also a fresh look for the magazine and some brand-new features to welcome in 2021.

  • Cover story – we pick out the 21 people who have shaped English cricket in the 21st century. Featuring in our list of ‘disruptors’ – which includes contributions from David Lloyd, Heather Knight and Mark Butcher – is World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, who talks exclusively to Jo Harman about shaking up the safe cloisters of English cricket.
  • In our first issue of the new year we freshen things up with five new regular features, including a slab of wild mercurial brilliance from new columnist Andy Zaltzman.
  • Jos Buttler speaks to Taha Hashim about his slow and at times painful evolution as a Test cricketer.
  • Forty years on, John Stern looks back on England’s remarkable 1981 tour of the Caribbean, when events on the field were overshadowed by drama off it.
  • Tim Robinson, Nottinghamshire’s all-time leading run-scorer, picks his county’s Greatest XI, with a couple of surprising choices.
  • Mithali Raj, the heartbeat of Indian women’s cricket, reflects on her singular career.
  • Our crack team of columnists are in fine form: Adam Collins asks where next for Tim Paine and Australia after India pull off the unthinkable, Isabelle Westbury highlights how women’s cricket has been sidelined in the pandemic, and Andrew Miller explores the perils of reporting on cricket remotely.
  • We also have an emotional tribute to Surrey and England cricketers John Edrich and Robin Jackman from their former teammate Alan Butcher.
