In issue 3 of Wisden Cricket Monthly, AB de Villiers gives a candid interview in which he explains his controversial decision to take a break from Test cricket and his reasons for returning. “I don’t think I ever did anything to be held responsible for the state of Test cricket,” the South African trailblazer tells Neil Manthorp.
The de Villiers interview is one strand of a three-part special on where cricket stands in 2018 and what the future holds, which also includes Jon Hotten’s superb piece on the ‘maverick’ coaches who are changing the way our game is understood and Phil Walker’s analysis of the ECB’s new broadcasting deal.
Elsewhere, an expert panel including Lawrence Booth, David Lloyd and national selector Angus Fraser tell us where England went wrong in our 'Ashes Inquest', Eoin Morgan gives a brutally honest assessment of his fluctuations in form in an exclusive interview, and Sussex chief executive Rob Andrew tells John Stern why the County Championship is “a mess”, and sets out his vision for the future of the domestic game.
