Wisden has a new editor this year, Lawrence Booth, the youngest man to hold the office for more than 70 years. In his Notes by the Editor he comments perceptively on the major issues facing the sport: Test cricket’s uncertain future, the need for India to strike a balance between power and responsibility, and the ongoing confusion surrounding technology.
Match figures of 11-57 in the recent victory over Glamorgan propelled the all-rounder to 7th in the Professional Cricketers’ Associations Most Valuable Player Rankings and earned him Cricket World’s County Player of the Week.

Watch Jonathan Clare and Tony Palladino rip through the Glamorgan batting to secure a sensational victory which secured back-to-back victories at the start of a LV= County Championship campaign for the first time since 2002 and sent Derbyshire to the top of the table.
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.
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.
See how Jonathan Clare recorded magnificent figures of 5 for 17 before combining with David Wainwright to repair the damage to Derbyshire’s second innings.
While the Cricket Factory will give passing youngsters the opportunity to take part in catching, throwing and batting exercises, representatives of the Club will be registering new Junior Members and engaging with the public about the 2012 summer of cricket.
