WHEN A JOURNALIST WAS MANKADED: http://goo.gl/bsm6VS

Ian Bishop's eloquent and deeply analytical email to Anand Vasu caused a dramatic change of heart for our columnist on the controversial issue. Read his response here:
“It is clearly within the rules. But we can’t use it. How silly does that sound? Why: Because of an illogical convention?”

'Michael Atherton is haunting my dreams. He's been making the occasional cameo for a year now. But this week he's popping up most nights...' Emma John in Following On.

The summer of 1993 was a pivotal moment in English cricket: a team of ageing stalwarts and hapless debutants had just limply surrendered the Ashes again, but a promising young captain won his second match in charge with a team full of new names. England fans heralded the dawn of a new era.Instead it turned out to be the start of arguably England's worst streak in any sport – a decade of frustration, dismay and comically bungling performances that...

In his Notes in the 2016 Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, editor Lawrence Booth praises the change in attitude of the England team, calling their decision to adopt a more attacking, watchable style “the most uplifting story in international cricket”. He welcomes the closer scrutiny on the Big Three, but stresses the need to give day/night Tests a chance outside Australia as cricket looks to safeguard the format. New Zealand figure prominently in the Wisden awards. Brendon McCullum and Kane Williamson are Cricketers of the Year – the first Kiwi double in their 86-year Test history – while Williamson is the Leading Cricketer in the World. Their compatriot Suzie Bates wins the women’s award.

“The word ‘great’ is often bandied about, but great is
something that is achieved over a long period of time…
If you can do it as long as Sachin did, only then can you be considered great.” From the Foreword by Ricky Ponting
Sachin Tendulkar, who retired from playing in 2014, is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest cricketers of all time – and arguably the greatest batsman ever.From the time Tendulkar made an appearance as a schoolboy cricketer in the 1989 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack to his retirement in 2014, Wisden on Tendulkar records the highlights of an exceptional career – handpicked from all Wisden publications over a quarter of a century and curate...

Story
Tagline
Wisden Cricketers' Almanack was first published in 1864.
Introduction
John Wisden – “the Little Wonder” – was one of the star cricketers of the mid-19th century: he probably starting selling cricket equipment in 1850, the year he took ten wickets in an innings for North v South at Lord’s. All ten were bowled, a feat which remains unique in first-class cricket.

He soon opened a shop in London and added cigars to his range of goods. Finally, he branched out into publishing and in 1864 produced the first Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack: an eccentric volume of old scores running to just 112 pages.

As it entered the last century, the Almanack dramatically improved to become accepted as the most authoritative record of cricket in Britain and around the world: a little wonder in its own right. It has never missed a year, even during the two world wars. Wherever the game is played, the name Wisden is now synonymous with cricket itself: it is the most famous sports book in the world.

Wisden’s yellow jacket, woodcut logo and front cover title in playbill font give each edition a familiar look. The book is regularly referred to as “the cricketers’ bible” (though not by the publishers) and some devotees regard it as infallible, a view emphatically not shared by Wisden – although the staff go to exceptional lengths to avoid even minor errors.

Each new edition contains more than 1,500 pages, many crammed with scorecards and statistics that some may find forbidding and dry. But devotees know the book is also full of unique and fascinating features, and every page is imbued with the spirit of the Almanack, defined as “accuracy, integrity and independence”.
