Book Description

3 April 2012
The Cricketers' Who's Who (2012) is the turn-to book for players, journalists and fans alike; their English cricket bible. The 33rd edition of this esteemed publication is produced by All Out Cricket in association with the Professional Cricketers' Association, and includes a foreword by England Test captain Andrew Strauss. The 2012 edition also sees a return to the well-loved and popular A-Z format. With detailed, insightful personal profiles for every county cricketer featuring in the 2012 county season, it gives readers the inside track on every player both on and off the pitch, including career stats and a biography revealing hidden talents. This eminently dippable reference book extends to in-depth entries on Scotland, the Unicorns, the Netherlands and all the umpires on the first-class panel; there is also a key profile of each first-class county and their coach, together with performance reviews for the previous season.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's better than last year's edition, but.... 5 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This isn't meant as a criticism of the other reviewers who've read this book, but there are times when I find myself thinking "What, have they read the same book?" when I read some reviews. That's happened here.

This book has been published for years, and till the edition before last, all professional cricketers received the sort of questionaire that you might expect to get when applying for a job (or responding to a request for personal information from your doctor). This might make it sound dull, but half the fun of the book was to find out if people responded to questions in a humourous way.

Last year they changed the contents completely. The questionaire had gone, and in its' place came a potted biography from the player's captain, and one other source. That was done because a lot of the younger players didn't get the questionaire (apparently) and it was felt that this was in some way more... democratic and inclusive maybe. The change irritated me, and a lot of cricket traditionalist however, because it reduced the chance for colour to be brought to a game when you're bored watching a county game on a wet Wednesday in Whitby.

In response to the criticism of last year's book (I suspect), they've changed the layout again. They've reintroduced the questionaire again, except it's a different questionaire. I'd agree with some that in previous years the questionaire could seem quite dry, but I suspect it was written with its' audience in mind. Let's face it if you're buying this book about "ordinary Joe" cricketers, you're never going to be... part of the "uber cool in crowd." You're just not, and there's nothing wrong with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive cricket profile 9 Jun 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is the latest 'Who's Who' profiling the current cricketers, umpires and some oveseas players 2012. It is another cricket fans' essential. Whether at lunch, tea or rain or indoors this tells the latest of the men on the field. A companion to the other pocket cricket books ,notably Playfair Cricket Annual. Scorecards are fine but they do not tell any more about the players. Highly recommended to any cricket enthusiast who ,if not already in posession, should purchase. Extremely useful for county cricket followers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cricketers Who's Who 2012 23 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Essential information for the cricket buff - the information is excellent and up-to-date. To watch a cricket match and have all this information on the players is pleasing. I have been a subscriber for several years now and keep all my past volumes for reference. I thoroughly recommend this publication to all cricket buffs. The format has been changed year-by-year and I think that this year is the best so far but past editions are still enjoyable and very informative. My gratitude to all concerned. Kindest regards Jim Harris

1.0 out of 5 stars Duped! 12 Jun 2013
By Richard
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I hate it because I searched for 'The Cricketers Who's Who 2013'. It never occurred to me that I would be presented with a list which included the 2012 version so I did not check date - the cover looks exceedingly similar to the 2013 version. So I felt I was duped!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big improvement over last year's. 21 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is now almost back to the style of recent years; we felt that the last one made it far too difficult to find individuals, unless you had a complete knowledge of who had played for which teams. The revised format is much better but the typeface, which was far too small last year, is still on the small side for us; we are "older generation".
