5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Cricket Companion For Enthusiasts. 11 April 2013
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
This annual edition is a must for a cricket follower, whether armchair (warm) or more bracefully risking the elements. Like tea and toast, this blends with the ultimate game. I feel sorry for the reviewer who bought this on Kindle as I cannot imagine trying to find at fingertips the necessary information on a cricketer or county. Viewing matches or wanting quick information, the paperback is ideal. Even worse would be Wisden on e-book. This slips alongside the flask, into the pocket or wherever. A marvellous book that continues to be superb value for money with a mine of information. If you love cricket, the best of sport for me, this is for you. Price of a pint or two to enjoy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars All round 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book has everything you need to drive your wife crazy. When you are sitting in the bubble watching cricket and she comes into the room and asks a question you can pick up the book and start to answer with a cornucopia of data. She goes away quickly and you can get back to watching the cricket.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT GET THE KINDLE EDITION! 11 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's taken me five minutes to discover that this book is hopelessly adapted to Kindle. The pages of statistics and fixtures, the basic raison d'etre for this annual, are unreadably faint and do not respond to changes in font size. The main market for this book is followers of county cricket - you want to be able to quickly look up the details for the teams of the particular match you are watching. However, you cannot navigate directly to a particular county's section - you either have to do a word search or scroll through all the pages in the county section. Unfortunately I will now have to return this and get it in print format as I usually find this book an invaluable adjunct to the cricket season. Do not make my mistake!

I have every Playfair Cricket Annual from 1963 to 2013. Nothing unexpected then this year, but it remains completely essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Poor Man's Wisden 21 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've bought annually and kept every edition barring the first two. Gives the cricket fan all of the basic statistical information one needs plus mini-career records of current players and fixture lists. Compact and still pocketable.
