About the Product
The 159th edition of the most famous sports book in the world – published every year since 1864 – contains some of the world’s finest sports writing, and reflects on a year when Azeem Rafiq forced the sport to examine, more painfully than ever, its attitude to racism. The launch of The Hundred gave a huge boost to the women’s game while raising many questions about the men’s. Then, in the last two months of the year, Australia’s men won the T20 World Cup and retained the Ashes.
Writers include Lawrence Booth, Stephen Fry, Mike Atherton, Gideon Haigh, Henry Blofeld, Vic Marks, Tanya Aldred, Andy Bull, Tim de Lisle, Emma John and Scyld Berry. As usual, Wisden includes the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and the famous obituaries. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records.
“There can’t really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it’s obviously Wisden” Andrew Baker in The Daily Telegraph.
