Wisden Cricketers' Almanack (commonly known as Wisden) is an annual publication which primarily reviews the previous year's cricket season in Great Britain, although it provides a measure of global coverage too. It was first published in 1864 by John Wisden & Co. Ltd. Wisden was himself a famous cricketer. A new volume has been published every year since then and so the 2020 issue is the 157th edition.[1]
