- The new issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, out on August 12, is an England v India special, celebrating the marquee series of the summer.

- Elsewhere, Sir Ian Botham takes us back to 1981 and the most iconic series of them all, Matthew Hoggard opens up to James Wallace about the defining moments of his career, Sir Andrew Strauss sits down with John Stern to discuss the game today and his place within it, and Sandeep Lamichhane, the Nepalese leg-spin sensation, describes the cricketing revolution taking place in his country.
- There’s also stacks of domestic cricket in ‘The County Files’, featuring news and interviews from all 18 first-class counties. This month we hear from, among others, Phil Salt, Marcus Harris, Michael Hogan and, the county game’s latest breakout star, Warwickshire’s Chris Benjamin.
- As ever, our columnists pull no punches, as Andrew Miller laments England’s misuse of Moeen Ali, Elizabeth Ammon investigates the effect of the ‘pingdemic’ on county cricket, Isabelle Westbury warns of the dangers of pigeonholing players and, our latest recruit, Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth, gives his verdict on the first fortnight of The Hundred. Another full-to-bursting issue is rounded off by the brilliant Andy Zaltzman, who examines – in some depth – the number 18.
