First issue

In the first (March 2013) issue of The Nightwatchman, running to 140 pages of print, Jon Hotten muses on the role of nightwatchman, Wisden India editor Anand Vasu ponders the itinerant life of the modern professional cricketer and Siddharta Vaidyanathan waxes lyrical on Sachin. Best-selling author and historian James Holland retraces the final steps of legendary England spinner Hedley Verity, shot dead in Sicily during the WWII, and Harvard mathematician Bob Kaplan explains how cricket saved us from Martian invasion. Meanwhile, Christian Ryan glories in the genius of Shiv Chanderpaul and Dileep Premachandran records the passing of India’s golden generation.

The first issue also features pieces from Vaneisa Baksh, Patrick Neate, Amol Rajan, Firdose Moonda, Rob Steen, Tom Holland, Osman Samiuddin, Tanya Aldred, Rob Smyth, Andy Wilson, Daniel Norcross and Jarrod Kimber. In short, it’s a useful looking squad.
