Wisden

2022

The 159th edition of the most famous sports book in the world - published every year since 1864 - contains some of the world's finest sports writing. English cricket's racism scandal is a major theme of this year's Almanack, which includes a piece from Azeem Rafiq, the former player whose claims of discrimination at Yorkshire culminated in his emotional testimony before a parliamentary select committee in November. In his Notes by the Editor, Lawrence Booth describes England's "annus horriblis", and calls for the ECB chief executive Tom Harrison to return his share of a £2.1 million bonus for the board's senior staff. In addition, there are the eagerly anticipated Cricketers of the Year awards, and the famous obituaries. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records.
