WISDEN HAS RECORDED 143 SUMMERS, BUT NEVER ONE LIKE THIS Wisden 2006 has more feature articles and more colour pictures than ever before, plus a special section on the 2005 Ashes. Top writers include Gideon Haigh, Steve James, Clement Freud, Ed Smith, Kevin Mitchell, Quentin Letts, David Frith, Francis Wheen, Angus Fraser, plus * Paul Hayward on cricket's first rock star * Simon Barnes on the Freddiad * The Analyst on how England won * Mark Taylor on Australia's defeat * John Woodcock's Ashes reflections * Derek Pringle on the post-match beer And Wisden answers the questions: Who are the teams of the decade? Who are Flantiff and Vorner? Who is the Leading Cricketer in the World? Wisden: the essential companion for every follower of cricket.
Wisden 2007, the most up-to-date ever, reports on the whole of England's baffling winter tour: the disaster of the Ashes, and their improbable - almost impossible - triumph in the one-day series. Wisden gets behind the headlines, and asks what went wrong, and what went right. And the game's best writers cover the rest of the cricketing year too: all the stories you would expect, and some you wouldn't. . * Mike Atherton pays tribute to Shane Warne * Michael Parkinson recalls "t'greatest fast bowler", Fred Trueman * Ian Chappell, Simon Hughes and John Woodcock analyse The Ashes * Simon Barnes on The Leading Cricketer in the World * Clement Freud reports on The Day They Stopped Playing * Marcus Berkmann on cricket in mid-ocean PLUS * The Leading Cricketers of the World: A unique listing of the greatest players for each year since 1900 * Test Match Special at 50: Gillian Reynolds and Jim Maxwell salute a great radio institution. AND, the most puzzling question of all, Why do they keep getting injured? Wisden: the essential companion for every follower of cricket.
The 145th edition of Wisden reports on the calamitous World Cup, the invigorating World Twenty20, the volatile Australia v India series and twelve stuttering months for England. Under a new editor, Scyld Berry, the 2008 Almanack is the first Wisden to include the record of every Test cricketer, past and present. The game's best writers cover all the stories you would expect and some you wouldn't. * Mike Brearley, Ian Chappell, John Woodcock, Simon Barnes and Tony Cozier profile the five greatest cricketers never chosen to be a Wisden Cricketer of the Year (clue: there are four bowlers and only one batsman) * Andrew Strauss looks at "What Duncan did for us" * Four county cricketers tell the stories of their 2007 season * Carl Bridge and Doug Insole look behind the legend of Don Bradman on the centenary of his birth * Nick Newman celebrates the enduring power of cricket cartoons * Mike Atherton, Ian Healy and Robert Craddock assess the great careers of Brian Lara, Adam Gilchrist and Glenn McGrath PLUS: The burnt gravy which stopped play and the visiting county who had to bring their own stumps "There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden".
