Spin- New Cricket Magazine

I was wondering if anyone has picked up a copy of the new english cricket magazine Spin.
It's supposed to be mainly marketed at younger people, younger than thirty, and particularly at younger Asians, whereas the Wisden Cricketer is more anglo-centric and broad-based

I think from this first issue that it fulfills that remit pretty well, Imran Khan has a big column and they've got quite a few other big name contributors including Simon Hughes, Graham Gooch, Ian Smith and Bob Woolmer.

I'm not going to cancel my subscription to the Cricketer but it does seem to have potential. Has anyone else read it?

Yep. First edition only £1.50 so I invested!

I was pretty impressed; a particularly good article on Packer's WSC I thought.

Think I may buy it again. :)

Will be off into Town on Thursday - will have a look and see if I can find a copy.

Any ideas where to look? WH Smith?

It's all over the place but I got my copy in WH Smith at Liverpool Street Station. Most newsagents should have it though.
