Wisden 2009, the 146th edition, contains coverage of every first-class game in every cricket nation, and reports on all Test matches and limited-overs internationals, including the burgeoning world of Twenty20 cricket. Trenchant opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records make it the cricketers’ bible worldwide.
The 146th edition of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack recounts a year when cricket was turned on its head. The Twenty20 revolution threatened the established order, as the IPL exploded onto the scene with the Stanford $20 million match muscling in later on. Meanwhile England managed to lose three captains and a coach within six months. And as the next Ashes series looms, both England and Australia lost consecutive Test series away to India and home to South Africa.
