About the Product

In the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, out January 20, we tackle the five burning questions facing English cricket following another miserable men’s Ashes tour.

Canvassing opinion from figures across the game, we consider the futures of the England hierarchy, the technical failings of the batting unit, the state of county pitches, and ask whether the County Championship in its current structure is fit for purpose. We also debate who should make the plane for England’s next Test assignment in the Caribbean.

Elsewhere, a panel of 28 writers and pundits select WCM’s men’s Test team of 2021 – including an interview with one of the year’s breakout acts – and we pick out the best female cricketers of the last 12 months in a cross-format XI.

There are also exclusive interviews with Danni Wyatt, Alec Stewart, Steve Harmison and the Parkinson twins. Phil Walker compares and contrasts the careers of Heather Knight and Meg Lanning as the pair prepare to lock horns once again in Ashes battle, while our columnists Lawrence Booth, Andrew Miller and Adam Collins are in typically punchy form before the inimitable Andy Zaltzman wraps things up by beckoning us into his mind palace.
