Wisden has a new editor this year, Lawrence Booth, the youngest man to hold the office for more than 70 years.

Match winner Clare delighted with Glamorgan victory


Jon Clare starred in his first match of the 2012 campaign to instigate a terrific and clinical victory for Derbyshire against Glamorgan at The SWALEC Stadium to ensure the county continued their 100% start to the season.

The 25-year-old lived up to his all-rounder tag by contributing 21 and 43 with the bat in a low scoring game that saw only one half century – from David Wainwright – as well as delivering magnificent match figures of 11-57 to see the visitors home by 130 runs.

Clare, understandably, was delighted with his overall performance but the Burnley-born man insists it is the win that gives him the most satisfaction.

Brilliant Clare secures memorable win for Derbyshire

Clare_1Derbyshire put in a performance on Day Three that will live long in the memory for their supporters as Jon Clare inspired the visitors to a truly brilliant victory over Glamorgan.

There were few signs of what was to come as Derbyshire made the worst possible start, having resumed six down in the second innings with a 187 run lead.

However the early dismissals of Clare, who had added three runs to his overnight unbeaten 40, followed by Tom Poynton two balls later for a duck, proved to be just a brief scare as Tony Palladino (21) put on 41 with David Wainwright to take the lead past 200.
