About the Product
In the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, out February 24, we mark the long-awaited Women’s World Cup by profiling the 22 best female cricketers on the planet, including contributions from Lydia Greenway, Geoff Lemon and Sarah Waris.
We also preview the England men’s Test tour of the Caribbean, as John Stern examines one of the game’s great rivalries and Jo Harman analyses the 16-strong squad which has sparked such controversy.
There’s more on the decision to drop Anderson and Broad from columnist Lawrence Booth, who argues England are once again guilty of failing to focus on the challenge right in front of them, while Andrew Miller asks how Tom Harrison, the ECB’s CEO, still has his job following the recent wave of sackings. Adam Collins writes that Australia were right to move on from Justin Langer, even if the circumstances around the coach’s exit were regrettable.
You’ll also find interviews with Ben Foakes, recalled by England and seemingly set for a proper stint with the gloves, Lancashire’s England hopeful Josh Bohannon, who speaks to his former boss Paul Allott, and the former England and Essex seamer John Lever on his wicket-laden career.
Elsewhere, Taha Hashim speaks to four players about what it’s like to score a first Test hundred, we pick out the emerging stars from England’s Under-19 World Cup campaign, and, after a bruising few months, we remind ourselves why we love the game, with 39 reasons why its brilliance is unparalleled.
