Win a copy of 'CRICKET 2.0: Inside the T20 Revolution'
Win one of three copies of 'CRICKET 2.0: Inside the T20 Revolution' by Tom Wigmore and Freddie Wilde.
On Cricket 2.0, Alex Massie who judged this award, writes in the 2020 edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack:
“This book is really the first history of a cricketing revolution. Twenty20 might have begun as a bit of a joke, a piece of whack and giggle not to be confused with the real thing. But in 15 or so years, it has become the game’s pulsating driving force. There is, as the authors make clear, no going back…
[They] have produced a fascinating book, essential for anyone who wishes to understand cricket’s new age… They have spoken to dozens and dozens of the world’s leading cricketers and, more than any other book, got under the skin of how T20 is played, and why... The ultimate takeaway – you realise by the end of this intelligent, absorbing, detailed survey of where and how we have reached this moment in the history of the game – is that soon, perhaps sooner than we think, T20 and Test cricket, already diverging, will be seen as cousins rather than siblings. Cricket 2.0 will not be with us for long; 3.0 is already in development. While we wait, Cricket 2.0 is the Wisden Book of the Year.”
