Wisden 2019 charts the rise and rise of the England one-day team as they head towards a home World Cup in the summer. It also revisits the 1979 tournament, when England made it to the final, but lost out to Clive Lloyd's all-conquering West Indians.
This is Lawrence Booth's eighth 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
Wisden is a source of delight for cricket lovers and the 2019
edition, edited once again by Lawrence Booth, does not disappoint.

Even at the age of 155, Wisden intends to keep on turning. It still sets the standard, whether it's bought as a gift, a decoration, an encyclopaedia or a huge magazine. The Wisden Almanack is all things to all men. And to all women. * Rob Smyth, ESPN *
Wisden lands on the doorstep with a joyous thud. Its daffodil-yellow cover is the signal to anticipate the delights of spring and summer and its contents are always a treasure to relish.
