In the Press: Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2013

 

 

Just as the founders of the Albert Memorial College were discussing the progress of their new enterprise in 1864, 200 miles away in Bradford John Wisden was publishing his Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack for the first time.  The Wisden as it became better known has gone on to become the most famous sporting book in the world and this year celebrates its 150th edition faithfully providing scorecards, statistics and articles from around the globe. To earn a mention in this “cricketers’ bible” is more often reward enough, but the endeavours of last year’s 1st XI captain Robbie Bridgstock were also accompanied by a photograph to highlight his achievement in becoming the 5th highest run scorer in schools’ cricket in 2012. It may be some time yet before the 150th edition matches the £25,000 price tag of the 1864 original, but to those named within the famous yellow cover, copies are priceless.
