About the Product

In the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, we look ahead to the men’s T20 World Cup in the UAE and review an eventful summer of county cricket.

Ben Jones, CricViz analyst and author, opens our bumper World Cup preview by assessing England’s chances of winning the trophy. We also have exclusive interviews with West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard and Pakistani run-machine Mohammad Rizwan, as well as profiles of all 16 teams who are competing.

We’ve extended our County Files section this month, reflecting on the trials and tribulations of all 18 counties this summer, including in-depth features on Warwickshire and Kent, who walked away with the major pieces of silverware. There are also interviews with, among others, Leicestershire’s Callum Parkinson, Brad Wheal of Hampshire and Scotland, and Sussex opener Tom Haines, the Championship’s leading run-scorer.

Elsewhere, our roster of columnists address the most pressing issues affecting the game after a turbulent month: Andrew Miller writes on player power, Lawrence Booth on the wider impact of T20’s exponential growth, Adam Collins on the hoopla and hypocrisy that surrounds an Ashes series, and guest columnist Peter Oborne tears into the ECB following their decision to cancel the tour of Pakistan, describing it as both shameful and predictable.

We also speak to John Crawley about the most significant moments in his run-laden career, Tymal Mills opens up on the bumpy road which has eventually led to World Cup selection, and Andy Zaltzman does a deep dive into the number zero in his mind-boggling column.
