With Tests and One Day Internationals now joined by Twenty20 games, there is more international cricket than ever before. These games captivate a television audience of tens of millions throughout the year and throughout the world. But how do you keep track of all the players? The Wisden Guide to International Cricket (formerly known as The ESPN Cricinfo Guide to International Cricket) is the answer. The 2013 edition of this already popular annual paperback will contain crisply written profiles of everyone expected to appear in a Test match in 2013. Published in November 2012, at the beginning of international cricket's busiest time of year, this is the only guide that tells you HOW they play as well as what they've achieved. The 200 players featured in the book all get full-page treatment, with a photograph alongside a career summary in words, facts and figures. And to back up the profiles, there are quick-fire records for every country, and up-to-date statistics from www.cricinfo.com, the world's biggest cricket website. The Wisden Guide to International Cricket is the essential companion for every cricket lover, and the ideal complement to the long-standing Spring bestsellers Wisden Cricketers' Almanack and Playfair.
The Wisden Guide to International Cricket 2013 is a page-per-player guide to the world's top 200 cricketers, each with a photo, stats and written profile, plus country-by-country records.
