*Standard hardback edition*

The most famous sports book in the world, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack has been published every year since 1864. Home to some of the finest sports writing of the year - from the likes of Lawrence Booth, Gideon Haigh, Rob Smyth, Patrick Collins, Simon Wilde, Osman Samiuddin, Tony Cozier, Benj Moorehead, Raf Nicholson and Dileep Premachandran - it includes the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and the famous obituaries. As always, it contains coverage of every first-class game in every cricket nation, and reports and scorecards for all Tests and ODIs, together with trenchant opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records.

A perennial bestseller in the UK, yet again this year's edition - the 153rd, Wisden 2016 - is truly a "must-have" for every cricket fan.

"There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden" Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph

About Lawrence Booth

This is Lawrence Booth's fifth year as Editor of Wisden, although he has contributed for many years. He is also cricket writer for the Daily Mail and author of several critically acclaimed cricket books. He is one of the most respected and well liked authorities in the modern game. @the_topspin
