Description

"Wisden's Leading Cricketers in the World: 1900-Present" gives a unique year-by-year perspective on cricket's leading cricketers since 1900. Based on the definitive list compiled by Wisden, this book looks at the exploits of the greatest players to have graced the game, and provides a history of cricket through the actions of those who have dominated the game down the years. The book is divided into 11 chapters - one for each decade from 1900 to 2006 - and charts the rise and fall of cricket's greatest international stars. Every player who has been judged by Wisden to have been the leading player in the world for the past 107 years is featured, from the pre-war dominance of Bradman to the heroics of Andrew Flintoff in the 2005 Ashes. In traditional Wisden style, the book will look at both the statistics and figures that lead to each player receiving the 'leading cricketer in the world' accolade along with a crafted narrative of the effect that player had on his contemporaries and the evolution of the sport.show more
