About the Product
Isa Guha slips into the editor’s chair for the latest issue of Wisden Cricket Monthly, a bumper magazine which includes a world exclusive with England’s white-ball captain, Jos Buttler.
In our widest-ranging issue yet, out on May 5, Isa speaks to Buttler about the pressures of following in Eoin Morgan’s footsteps, his interest in psychology, and the challenges he faced in transferring his outstanding white-ball record into the Test arena. “I never had quite the same level of trust in my own game,” says Buttler of his time England’s Test side.
Elsewhere, star columnist Mark Ramprakash argues Stokes and McCullum are challenging our understanding of how a cricket team should be picked, Lawrence Booth says nothing will divert England’s Test captain from his mission, and Andrew Miller anticipates English cricket’s day of reckoning in the form of the impending ICEC report.
We have exclusive interviews with Charlotte Edwards, Ebony Rainford-Brent and the brilliant Enid Bakewell, in-depth coverage of how all 18 counties have started the new campaign, and a nine-page guide to the new women’s domestic season.
Elsewhere, Phil Walker picks out the greatest lines from the history of cricket commentary, Jo Harman tells the story of Australian wicketkeeping royalty, Ben Bloom takes the temperature of county supporters, Katya Witney delivers an eye-opening piece on the plight of Afghanistan’s female cricketers, and Luke Alfred hails the resilience of Temba Bavuma, South Africa’s first black African captain.
We also have coaching tips from Keaton Jennings, Liam Plunkett and Toby Radford to help you tune up for the new season.
