4.0 out of 5 stars Prefered Bill Findall's layout
A must have book for any cricket lover who wants to complete their test match stats up to date (Sri Lanka v New Zealand 2009)
I dont like the change of layout. Bill Frindalls previous books in the series were much easier to read being in vertical columns instead of horizontaly here but otherwise its a long awaited completion of this series of books. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A flawed volume of cricket records
Cricket lovers around the world have always eagerly awaited the appearance of "The Wisden Book of Test Cricket" which records in detail the facts and figures of every Test match played and all the associated statistics.

If you like this sort of thing, it's unique and near perfect. I'd like some more statistics at the back, but I know I can get them elsewhere.

This review is from: The Wisden Book of Test Cricket 2000-2009: v. 4 (Hardcover)
Cricket lovers around the world have always eagerly awaited the appearance of "The Wisden Book of Test Cricket" which records in detail the facts and figures of every Test match played and all the associated statistics. It was in many ways the doyen of cricket statisticians Bill Frindall's greatest achievement. Bill sadly dies a little over a year ago and the latest volume of the book's, dealing with Test matches played in the first decade of the 21st Century, has been edited by Steven Lynch. In his brief preface Lynch makes an appropriate acknowledgment of Bill Frindall and says that the new volume is "...decided to his memory" and he hopes that "...I have managed to produce a book of which he would approve" - a forlorn hope I'm afraid Mr Lynch.

Bill Frindall would be turning in his grave if he spied page 259 of the book on which the so-called "Super Test" between Australia and an "ICC World XI" is recorded as if it was a proper Test match - which Bill Frindall and all others who really care about cricket statistics and records know that it was not. Bill summarised his views unequivocally in the 2006 Playfair annual which he edited "...simple logic dictates that "international" records should be exactly that - "contests between nations"" - as the International Cricket Council's regulations had properly stated for decades. Wisden's rational for including the match is that it accepts the "...governing body's right to rule on its status". This is arrant nonsense of course - if those who are experts on cricket statistics, Bill Frindall and all other respectable cricket historians included, know and can prove that the match wasn't a proper Test match then that is the end of the matter - whatever the ignorant apparatchiks of the ICC might say!
