All 18 counties reviewed!

It’s our popular end-of-season review edition!

The Cricketer: October 2017

“It was never about me sitting in the chairman’s office and watching a game of cricket. It was about getting Durham back to where they belong" - Ian Botham

Durham are profiled in the County Set with their chief executive David Harker declaring "cricket doesn't end in Leeds"; Chris Read talks about life after Notts; and Fabian Cowdrey eulogises Darren Stevens.

We also have three great Mikes – Procter, Selvey and Henderson… plus Ask Nasser, Peter ‘the cricket Doctor Who’ Davison, Will Gore, Mark Robinson on the Women’s Ashes, Sam Billings on keeping to spinners and Chris Lewis features in 'What ever happened to...'.

So something for everyone this autumn!
