John Wisden & Co
This extremely daft and sometimes highly amusing book takes careful aim at well-deserved targets and ruthlessly takes the urine out of them. Shane Warne and Kevin Pietersen are fair game but surely Ian Bell doesn’t deserve such cruelty.
Done in the style of a faux nineteenth century Wisden Cricketer magazine, it humour is more likely to appeal to those who go to The Oval to get drunk rather than those who go to Lord’s to watch cricket. It’s not for everyone and it’s certainly not the future of cricket writing.
One for the dunny.
