Waterstones Says

Simply unparalleled in its scope, coverage and authority, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanac for 2020 is an indispensable guide to a fascinating year of cricket, for all lovers of the game.

Standard Hardback Edition

Wisden 2020 provides unparalleled coverage of an extraordinary year of cricket. The 157th edition of Wisden celebrates the World Cup triumph of England's men on a memorable day at Lord's. The cover captures the moment of victory - and arguably the most important split second in the history of English cricket - as Jos Buttler runs out Martin Guptill from the last ball of the super over to confirm England as champions.

Wisden 2020 reports not just on a remarkable World Cup, reliving the climax through the eyes of England's players, but on a topsy-turvy Ashes, the Stokes Headingley miracle and all. Wisden also names its champion all-format county, and remembers Bob Willis, who died in December. Emma John reveals what it's like to be a woman member of MCC, while Colin Shindler looks back 50 years at a summer of demonstrations and barbed wire.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There are treasures galore to be discovered, all meticulously gathered and utterly trustworthy except on pages 1500-1508, which are devoted to the 2020 fixture list. -- Vic Marks * The Guardian *
But the undoubted highlight of the week has been the arrival of this year's Wisden Almanack. I haven't had time to do more than dip in so far ... but the new Wisden is always a sure sign of the start of summer. Though what kind of summer it will be is still in the lap of the coronavirus. -- John Crace * The Guardian *
Wisden was published on a hot sunny day last week, and it will be a pleasure to treasure while the sporting world remains in hibernation. There are 1,500 pages between the daffodil yellow covers, but never has the size felt less daunting. -- Jim Holden * Sunday Express *
Overall, Wisden succeeds again in meeting its challenge, recording meticulously and comprehensively while finding time to breathe and reflect. -- Richard Hobson * The Cricketer *
The 157th edition of the game's bible is as bulky as ever: 1,536 pages squeezed between the familiar yellow covers and packed with statistics, scorecards, match reports and titbits that will reassure fans that there are some things that even Covid-19 cannot destroy. -- Mihir Bose * The Financial Times *
It is a book of three parts: comment; record; and delightful minutiae, which always brings the most cheer. -- Mike Atherton * The Times *
The joys of the Almanack are the joys of cricket. Its landscape is vast, its minutia endlessly explorable. It is somewhere to escape to. -- Jon Hotten * Wisden Cricket Monthly *

“Wisden 2020”

There is one room in our house which is conspicuous by the absence of cricket paraphernalia! And as for books - so many that some have been consigned to storage.
Not the editions of Wisden of course which command... More
