Scyld Berry, editor of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, praises Claire Taylor (in 2009) after she became the first woman to be named as one of the Cricketers in the Year: "[Taylor] almost single-handedly saw England through to victory and the retention of the Ashes in Australia last year ... It would be a sin of omission, an act of prejudice, to exclude her from the accolade. [...] The England women have been the pride of the nation as far as cricket is concerned in recent years, and [Taylor's] nomination as a Cricketer of the Year is testament to the sterling effort the ladies have consistently put in."
