News to me! I’ll have to ask Steven about this – sounds like a good idea, though. The synopsis reads as follows:
Cricinfo, the world’s biggest cricket website, enjoys an unrivalled global presence. And after launching its own magazine in January, Cricinfo now adds an exciting new annual, “The Cricinfo Guide to International Cricket”, which will be an essential annual handbook for all cricket-lovers. The Guide focuses exclusively on international cricket in all its guises – frenetic Twenty20s, one-day internationals and Test matches. These games captivate a television audience of tens of millions throughout the year and throughout the world. Published in November, at the beginning of international cricket’s busiest time of year, the Guide is the ideal complement to the long-standing Spring bestsellers “Wisden” and “Playfair”. In 2007, a busy cricket programme includes the ninth World Cup, held in the West Indies. “The Cricinfo Guide to International Cricket 2007″ fills a gap left by “Wisden” and “Playfair” by giving detailed profiles of every player expected to appear on the international stage during the year. Every one of almost 200 featured players gets full-page treatment, containing a photograph and a career summary in words and statistics. And to back up the profiles, there is also a quick-reference section of records compiled from Cricinfo’s inexhaustible StatsGuru service.
