Wisden 2015

Cricket Web in conjunction with Bloomsbury publishers are giving away free copies of some of Bloomsbury’s finest publications. These include:

  • Wisden on Grace
  • Wisden India
  • Wisden Cricketers Almanack 2015

Now obviously we are going to make you work for these quality and valuable books by asking a series of questions as each book becomes available. This month we have Wisden 2015 – which you can find a review of on the site. We have three copies to give away and you just have to answer the following questions and send your answers to

1. Name one of the non-cricketing subjects covered in the first edition?
2. What did the Almanack first do in 1896?
3. What did the Almanack first do in 1938?
4. What did the Almanack first do in 1965?
5 Who was the first female Cricketer of the Year?
6. How many pages is the 2015 edition of Wisden?
