About the Product

  • Cover story – Dan Lawrence, England’s latest Test debutant, takes the cover of the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, out on April 22. Phil Walker meets the Essex strokemaker at his home ground of Chelmsford and asks if this singular talent from the backwoods of east London can sidestep the system to make it to the top. In a wide-ranging interview, the 23-year-old talks about his “strange” strokeplay, England’s dressing-room dynamic and coming up against Virat Kohli, “the biggest alpha you’ve ever seen in your life”.
  • The launch of a new section devoted entirely to county cricket. ‘The County Files’ will cover all 18 counties in every issue, and this month includes exclusive interviews with Durham’s new captain Scott Borthwick, Leicestershire opener Hassan Azad, Warwickshire coach Mark Robinson on his return to the domestic circuit, and much, much more.
  • Suresh Menon interviews legendary Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble.
  • Chris Broad reflects on his colourful career in the game.
  • Mohammad Amir tells Saj Sadiq his decision to retire from international cricket wasn’t selfish.
  • Chris Adams selects Sussex’s Greatest XI.
  • Jo Harman tracks the history of the race to 1,000 runs before the end of May.
  • Mark Wood looks back on the summer that changed everything in ‘My Golden Summer’.
  • The usual brilliance from our crack team of columnists: Elizabeth Ammon, Isabelle Westbury, Andrew Miller and Andy Zaltzman.
  • An extended club section to mark the return of recreational cricket, including a look at the best new gear on the market.
