About the Product
Wisden 2023 is the 160th edition of the most famous sports book in the world – published every year since 1964. As ever, it contains some of the world’s finest sports writing.
It reflects on the extraordinary life of Shane Warne, who died at the age of 52, with a superb assessment by Gideon Haigh, first-person recollections from several of his Test victims, and a statistical analysis by Andy Zaltzman. David Frith remembers another legendary bowler, S.F. Barnes, on the 150th anniversary of his birth. Jonathan Liew bids farewell to Eoin Morgan, who stood down last year as England’s most successful white-ball captain. Patrick Kidd writes about Queen Elizabeth and cricket, and James Wallace tells the astonishing tale of the role played in the development of the Dukes ball by a German thought to have been interned at Auschwitz. Wisden also reports on England’s triumph at the T20 World Cup, to go alongside their 2019 ODI success, and on their Test team’s thrilling rejuvenation under Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes.
As usual, Wisden includes the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and obituaries. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records.
