The 154th edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack is crammed, as ever, with the best writing in the game. Matthew Engel looks back at 60 years of Test Match Special, Derek Pringle reveals the secrets of ball-tampering, and Gideon Haigh explores the evolution of the six. There are also superb pieces by Rob Smyth, Vic Marks and Tanya Aldred, plus the all the usual reports, reviews, scorecards and statistics - plus the hard-hitting editor's notes by Lawrence Booth. In an age of snap judgments, Wisden's authority and integrity are more important than ever. A perennial bestseller in the UK, yet again this year's edition is truly a "must-have" for every cricket fan.
