Wisden 2020 provides unparalleled coverage of an extraordinary year of cricket.

The 157th edition of Wisden celebrates the World Cup triumph of England's men on a memorable day at Lord's. The cover captures the moment of victory - and arguably the most important split second in the history of English cricket - as Jos Buttler runs out Martin Guptill from the last ball of the super over to confirm England as champions.

Wisden 2020 reports not just on a remarkable World Cup, reliving the climax through the eyes of England's players, but on a topsy-turvy Ashes, the Stokes Headingley miracle and all. Wisden also names its champion all-format county, and remembers Bob Willis, who died in December. Emma John reveals what it's like to be a woman member of MCC, while Colin Shindler looks back 50 years at a summer of demonstrations and barbed wire.

Reviews for Wisden Cricketers' Almanack 2020

There are treasures galore to be discovered, all meticulously gathered and utterly trustworthy except on pages 1500-1508, which are devoted to the 2020 fixture list. -- Vic Marks * The Guardian * But the undoubted highlight of the week has been the arrival of this year's Wisden Almanack. I haven't had time to do more than dip in so far ... but the new Wisden is always a sure sign of the start of summer. Though what kind of summer it will be is still in the lap of the coronavirus. -- John Crace * The Guardian * Wisden was published on a hot sunny day last week, and it will be a pleasure to treasure while the sporting world remains in hibernation. There are 1,500 pages between the daffodil yellow covers, but never has the size felt less daunting. -- Jim Holden * Sunday Express * Overall, Wisden succeeds again in meeting its challenge, recording meticulously and comprehensively while finding time to breathe and reflect. -- Richard Hobson * The Cricketer * The 157th edition of the game's bible is as bulky as ever: 1,536 pages squeezed between the familiar yellow covers and packed with statistics, scorecards, match reports and titbits that will reassure fans that there are some things that even Covid-19 cannot destroy. -- Mihir Bose * The Financial Times * It is a book of three parts: comment; record; and delightful minutiae, which always brings the most cheer. -- Mike Atherton * The Times *
