With a provocative foreword by Paul Collingwood, The Cricketers' Who's Who is now in its 31st edition. It is the book that both players and professonal cricket commentators use as their bible. Every player who has represented a county in the 2009 season or is contracted to play first-class cricket in the coming year is included. Each entry has a photo along with career and season statistics as well as personal information supplied by the players themselves. There are similar entries for all the umpires on the first class panel. As ever, The Cricketers' Who's Who provides an entertaining mix of detailed information, opinions and tongue-in-cheek comments.
