High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Young Wisden
Cricketer of the Year is a cricketer selected for the honour by the
annual publication Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. The decision is
based upon "his or her performances in school's cricket, as
reported in Wisden."Wisden has included details of schools cricket
as far back as its second edition in 1865, when it carried an
account of the match between Eton College and Harrow School. In
1918 and 1919, as no first-class cricket was being played due to
the First World War, the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year were
chosen from public schools. The first Young Wisden Cricketer of the
Year was named in 2008, in the 144th edition of Wisden Cricketers'
Almanack, in an effort to "help raise the profile of schools
cricket, especially at state schools." The first winner was
Jonathan Bairstow of St Peter's School, York.
