Wisden Gets It Right

3 04 2009

Wisden announced its 5 cricketers of the year, and I am really pleased that the England Captain got a look in.  Not Andrew Strauss, as his tenure so far has been less than impressive.  This England Captain is Claire Taylor, the womens captain.  For the first time in 120 years a woman has been added to the list, and who can blame Wisden for picking her.  Captain of a team that went through last summer undefeated, retained the Ashes, went on a 17 match unbeaten 1 day winning streak and then won the World Cup.

Not bad really is it!  Congratulations, and keep on going.

The other names on the list are James Anderson (England fast bowler), Durham Captain Dale Benkenstein, Mark Boucher and Neil Mckenzie of South Africa.
