by Suresh Menon | 14 November 2019
Category: Cricket
The World Cup returned to England after 20 years; the Almanack tells the story of the tournament and pays a tribute to the winners. What did it take to win? Writers include Sir Viv Richards, Ian Chappell, Yuvraj Singh. Mike Brearley discusses India's reaction to the new and untested, and finds a pattern there. British actor and director Harry Burton recalls his playing days with Nobel Laureate and cricket fan Harold Pinter. Former CBI chief R K Raghavan details the match fixing saga that nearly brought Indian cricket to its knees while Nandan Kamat seeks a law against fixing. Gulu Ezekiel details the collector's life, and what makes it special. Andreas Campomar writes about a commemorative game in Argentina, where cricket has been played for 150 years. Writers include the world's finest, Gideon Haigh, Rahul Bhattacharya, Geoff Lemon, Andrew Fernando, Sidhartha Monga, Sandeep Dwivedi, Neil Manthorp, Peter Lalor, Tim Wigmore. Unmukt Chand describes his struggles while Karunya Keshav and Snehal Pradhan capture the drama and the possibilities in women's cricket around the world. The quality of the writing remains consistently high while there are surprises and breath-taking material galore. The Six Cricketers of the Year and the Personality of the Year take their place among the other Wisden India Almanack staples: obituaries, book reviews, chronicles and the editor's notes. Mumbai's dramatic IPL win and the tournament details and commentary give the season at a glance. Who are the some of the country's best-known club cricketers, those who played for years and became local celebrities but seldom went on to bigger things? Wisden India Almanack tells their story. The international season, the domestic season complete with the details of the first class and other matches and records from the lower levels to the international, have been meticulously collected in this, the most respected annual cricket reference manual.
