Waterstones Says

Boasting the finest sports writers, from Gideon Haigh and Jon Hotten to Emma John and Tanya Aldred, the 160th edition of the undisputed cricketing bible abounds in facts, figures, trivia and opinion.

The 160th edition of the most famous sports book in the world - published every year since 1864 - contains some of the world's finest sports writing. It reflects on the extraordinary life of Shane Warne, who died far too early in 2022, and looks back at another legendary bowler, S. F. Barnes, on the 150th anniversary of his birth.

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. Writers include Lawrence Booth, Gideon Haigh, James Holland, Jonathan Liew, Emma John, David Frith, Simon Wilde, Jon Hotten, Robert Winder, Tanya Aldred and Neil Harvey, the last survivor from Australia's famous 1948 Ashes tour of England.

As usual, Wisden includes the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and the obituaries. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It is a book of three parts: comment; record; and delightful minutiae, which always brings the most cheer. - Mike Atherton, The Times

The publication of Wisden is cricket’s equivalent of the state opening of Parliament. It’s another great edition. - Oborne and Heller on Cricket podcast

The pages are stacked full of information, quirks and great analysis of the game, as well as being a wonderful record. - Alison Mitchell, BBC World Service Stumped

The big yellow book. The important one. The one aliens will be reading in hundreds of years’ time when we as a species have wiped ourselves out and they’ve come down to work out how cricket worked. - The Final Word podcast
