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.
It makes entertainiing bedtime reading as well as all the facts and figures a cricket lover could ever need..
Recommended for anyone ith more than a passing interest in cricket at the top level.
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!
