Wisden Crick Almanack Aust 2004

Wisden returns in November 2004 with a new editor, a new look, a new cover design and a new pledge: to publish the finest collection of Australian cricket writers ever assembled under one roof. Now in its seventh season, "Wisden" will complement its reputation for authority and mind-boggling statistics by playing a few shots too. Apart from covering every game everywhere, this year's "Wisden" will reflect on the career of Steve Waugh, the most significant Australian cricketer since Don Bradman, and the real story behind his final days. We will celebrate the return of Shane Warne in perhaps the most extraordinary cricketing comeback ever pulled off. And we will reveal the greatest Australian team of all time (clue: it's not Bradman's or Waugh's). New editor Christian Ryan, at age 30 the youngest Almanack editor in "Wisden's" 141-year history, says: "Australia has a glorious tradition of elegant, powerful, fiercely idiosyncratic cricket writing: from Jack Fingleton through Ray Robinson to Gideon Haigh.We intend to bring that tradition back to life, to make "Wisden" the home of words that charm and delight and provoke - and stats that startle too."
