NEW ISSUE: MAY 2016

HERE'S WHAT'S INSIDE THIS MONTH'S MAG...

Have you caught your breath yet?

In this May issue, we review – and celebrate – the World T20 in India. It was a vibrant event, with an epic final. Even the biggest T20 cynic must have been won over by the drama and spectacle of the climax at Eden Gardens.

Lawrence Booth chronicles the tournament, Geoff Lemon paints a colourful picture of organised chaos behind the scenes, and Simon Hughes analyses how West Indies brutalised England, who confounded expectations, into submission at the death.

It has been a great few weeks for West Indies. Their women also tasted glory in India, of course, and these twin triumphs came hot on the heels of the under-19 lads winning their 50-over World Cup in Dhaka. Dean Wilson asks if these victories could signal the start of a Caribbean cricket renaissance (including, crucially, hopefully, a resurgence in Test cricket).

Like the final in Kolkata, this issue is also shot through with big hits. There is a Ben Stokes interview by Richard Gibson, and we also speak to Marcus Trescothick about his near-misses as Somerset captain, Boyd Rankin on his ambitions for Warwickshire and Ireland, and Worcestershire’s Daryl Mitchell.

We also have a big section on how technology has transformed cricket. James Anderson tells us how Hawk-Eye helped him become England's record Test wicket-taker, while some of the game's best writers, including Barney Ronay, Rob Bagchi, Tanya Aldred, Martin Johnson and Jonathan Liew, ask how history would have been different if DRS had always been around.

We also look at Yorkshire's phoenix – the ground at Bradford Park Avenue is about to become operational again, which will lift the city and county.

We have coaching tips from Phil Mustard and Ben FoakesNasser Hussain’s Captain’s Corner, Last Man Stands, and Huw Turbervill looks at how cricket could affect Brexit.
