In 2013 I won the inaugural Wisden cricket-writing competition. Although I was immensely pleased to have won, I didn’t necessarily think that it would lead to anything more than a single appearance in the Almanack and one invitation to the annual launch dinner, which takes place at Lord’s each April.
However, after I’d written a review of the 2014 edition of Wisden for John Fuller’s Cricket Yorkshire website, Lawrence Booth asked me if I would be interested in taking over the review of cricket blogs which appears in Wisden each year.
Since 2015 I’ve written the piece on blogs for each edition of the Almanack, and every piece is reproduced here. All of them were edited a little by Lawrence before they appeared in the book; these are the original versions.
