Author Name    Engel, Matthew, editor.

Title   WISDEN CRICKETERS' ALMANACK 2005. 142nd EDITION.

Publisher    John Wisden, Alton, Hampshire, 2005.

Seller ID   22414

1744 pp, 6 1/2" H, hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0947766898 B&w and colour illustrations. "Wisden 2005 covers every match of the astonishing sequence that took (England) from Jamaica to Johannesburg - and a dozen test victories - in just ten mo nths. Mike Selvey traces the new dawn of English cricket back to the midnight hours of abject failure. Former team analyst Malcolm Ashton tells the story from inside the camp. And for the first time in 45 yeras, all Five Cricketers of th e Y e a r a r e English. There are full reports of all the events of 2004: the world records for Brian Lara, Murali and Shane Warne, and the rows over chucking, Zimbabwe and Sky TV. Wisden gets down to the grassroots as well. Alan Lee explains ho w t he t im e le ss ritual of village cricket is now splitting in two. But this is also a global book. Wisden explains how the mighty confusion of Indian TV bankrolls the game. One great Australian, Richie Benaud, pays homage to another, Ke ith M ill er. W isd en re por ts on South Africans' lingering love affair with Hansie Cronje and, from Sri Lanka, how cricket rose to the challenge of the Indian Ocean tsumami. Wisden recalls its own greatest editor, Sydney Pardon, the man who said (i n 19 10) that the En glan d se lectors had 'touched the confines of lunacy'. Wisden has never minced words. See this year's Notes by the Editor. Oh, and there's The Burning Bunny, the brothel that caters soley for professional crickete rs, a n in tervi ew w ith c ricke t's most famou s Slovak goalkeeper, the ground where it hasn't rained for 15 years....and Wisden's first-ever pin-up." Minor soiling on edges of textblock, four tiny scuffs on spine, small bump at top corner of rea r cove r, mi nor wr inkle s on s pine. Dus t jac ket ha s minor edge wrinkling, light rubbing and soiling, slight fading on spine and flap-folds. Very Good/Very Good
