I've just recieved the 1st edition of "The Wisden Cricketer" as part of a 2 year subscription because I had 2 1 year subscriptions to the Cricketer and WCM.
In my opinion, and only based on the 1st edition of the magazine, I don't think TWC is anywhere near as good as the 2 magazines it replaced. The reporting isn't as good, the layout is quite confusing and the designs are quite annoying. What I liked about recieving The Cricketer and WCM was the differing views and reports, ie if one said something in a county review, the other would most probably mention a different story. And for my final rant, it looks like they've tried to shove far too much in then piled it so full of adverts they had to leave most of it out.
