Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack was first published in 1864. A new volume has appeared every year since then.
WHAT’S IN WISDEN ALMANACK 2018?
The most famous sports book in the world, the 2018 Almanack is the 155th edition.
The Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2018 contains coverage of every first-class game in every cricket nation, and reports on all Test matches, ODIs and T20 internationals. Trenchant opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records make it the cricketers’ bible worldwide.
This year the Almanack makes history with Anya Shrubsole as the first women to feature on the cover, while inside we celebrate England’s spectacular win in the women’s Cricket World Cup, Simon Wilde reflects on the passage to England’s 1,000th Test, Harry Pearson celebrates 50 years of overseas players in the county game, and Tanya Aldred examines sexism in cricket.
Mike Selvey looks at the psychology of the new-ball partnership, while Zafar Ansari explains why he gave it all up at the age of 25. Gideon Haigh has fun with cricketers and their mannerisms, and Andy Zaltzman hails James Anderson’s ascent to 500 Test wickets.
