Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2010 (147th edition)
Wisden 2010 tells the compelling story of England’s recapture of the Ashes in 2009 - including an analysis by the winning captain, Andrew Strauss - and relives the year when the draw became the most nerve-shredding result of all: on four occasions inside 12 months, England reached the final ball of a Test with the last pair at the crease. Three times it was their own last-ditch heroics that thwarted the opposition, but in the Caribbean, they were stymied too. It also reports in searing detail the moment when the Sri Lankan Test team was ambushed by terrorists - and cricket truly lost its innocence.
Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2009 (146th edition)
The 146th edition of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack recounts a year when cricket was turned on its head. The Twenty20 revolution threatened the established order, as the IPL exploded onto the scene with the Stanford $20 million match muscling in later on. Meanwhile England managed to lose three captains and a coach within six months. Wisden makes sense of it all, providing insight, inside information and a little contemplative calm. And for the first time Wisden announces its World Test XI
Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2008 (145th edition)
Wisden 2008 reports on the calamitous 2007 World Cup, the invigorating inaugural World Twenty20, a volatile Australia v India series and twelve stuttering months for England.
Under a new editor, Scyld Berry, the 2008 Almanack is the first Wisden to include the record of every Test cricketer, past and present. Among its feature articles, Andrew Strauss looks at “What Duncan did for us”, Carl Bridge looks behind the legend of Don Bradman on the centenary of his birth, and Mike Brearley, Ian Chappell, John Woodcock, Simon Barnes and Tony Cozier profile the five greatest cricketers never chosen to be a Wisden Cricketer of the Year (clue: there are four bowlers and only one batsman)
Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack 2007 (144th edition)
Wisden 2007 reports on the whole of England’s disasterous 5-0 loss of the Ashes, getting behind the headlines, and asking what went wrong, and what went right.

Elsewhere, one great Australian, Richie Benaud, pays homage to another, Keith Miller. And there is a full history of chucking controversies, reports on South Africans’ lingering love affair with Hansie Cronje and, from Sri Lanka, how cricket rose to the challenge of the terrible tsunami.
