The moment Jos Buttler ran out Martin Guptill at Lord’s to secure England their first-ever men’s Cricket World Cup title will take the cover of the upcoming 2020 edition of the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack.
The Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, often labelled the ‘Bible of cricket’, Is an annual publication founded in 1864 by John Wisden – a.k.a. “the Little Wonder” – who was a prominent cricketer of the mid-nineteenth century. In 1850, he took ten wickets in an innings – all bowled – in a North vs South encounter at Lord’s. It remains a record in first-class cricket.
Throughout its 156 editions, Wisden has always been independent of any cricket administration.
