Rabada has excelled across all three formats, with the pace and bounce to be effective even on surfaces which don’t offer much for the quick bowler. Back in 1980 the Conservative MP Iain Sproat had the same problem when he compiled and edited the first edition of CWW, although there were no media managers around then to do his bidding. In an early preface he thanked a “Mr Bill Smith FRPS” for personally taking nearly all the photographs. Items shipped overseas may be subject to customs duty and may experience delays upon entry into the destination country.

Then again, Alastair Cook does mention in the 2013 foreword that CWW has been a key source for Graeme Swann’s sledges and dressing room “bants” over the years, so maybe it does have some things to answer for. Since averaging over 110 in the 2019 Ashes, the Sydney native has been slightly less productive in Test cricket, but remains among the elite batters in the longest format. Launched in 2010, the Wisden Cricket Photograph of the Year is open to all photographers, amateur or professional, from across the world.With the white ball in hand, he has a hostile bouncer which complements his variations and ability to perform a pinpoint yorker. Khan’s red-ball career has also set off at an impressive pace with Afghanistan recently earning Test status. Not only are players’ heights listed (as they are in current editions) but weight too; some of the less lissom no doubt rounding down their stats before sending them to Sproat.

Smith has succeeded on all surfaces, and will be remembered as one of the greatest batters of the 21st century when he retires. Following a golden era for South African fast bowling led by Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, Rabada has become the leader of the attack.

While not spinning the ball significantly, Rashid Khan’s leggies have become one of the most effective weapons in white-ball cricket. As I travel the country I come across an older generation who assure me the game isn’t what it was,” wrote Botham in 1981, a few months before he went on to make that summer his own. Since debuting for Pakistan as a teenager, Shaheen Shah Afridi has wasted no time establishing himself as one of the premier bowlers in world cricket. The all-rounder touches on the impact of limited-overs cricket, the need to look at the structure of county cricket as well as pay, and the pros and cons of overseas players.

According to the ICC rankings, he is also the number one all-rounder in T20Is and ODIs, while placing third in Tests. In Tests, he possesses the control and swing to control the scoring and keep batters under pressure. He averages over 60 in Test cricket, and while a relatively limited white-ball player, he possesses a great record in ODIs.

This year’s foreword comes courtesy of Middlesex legend Tim Murtagh, the epitome of a county cricketer. Not turning 30 until October 2024, he is on course for an all-time great career, comparable to past Pakistani icons like Younis Khan, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf.

The 44th edition tells you all you need to know about every player from all 18 counties and includes an expanded women's section to take in the new female cricketers who turned professional last year as well as the England Women squad. Detailed career statistics are included for each player, plus there is a round-up of the 2022 season, including tables, averages and MVPs. As usual, Wisden includes the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and the obituaries. Jonathan Agnew proudly displays his status as a “Lorry driver for SBA (Asbestos), Leicester” and Kim Barnett his time as a bank clerk.We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records. The pages of The Cricketers’ Who’s Who 2022 reveal the interesting, insightful, sometimes hilarious and often off-the-wall world of English cricket. Asked how to go about dismissing Steve Smith, Jack Leach responds simply: “Keep my foot behind the line.
