Kohli named among Wisdens Cricketers of the Year

Virat Kohli has created history by being named the Wisden's leading cricketer of the year for an unprecedented fourth year in a row.

Mandhana, the Leading Women's Cricketer of the Year, scored 669 and 662 runs in ODIs and T20Is during the course of 2018.

His performance in England led him to being named as one of the Five Cricketers of the Year by Wisden.

Smriti Mandhana claimed the women's leading player award, completing a clean sweep for India, while Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan is the top Twenty20 player for a second year in a row.

The Indian talisman was picked as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the year, along with England's Tammy Beaumont, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran and Rory Burns.

Her run in England's Women's Super League was spectacular as she piled up 421 runs at an astounding strike rate of 174.68, including a T20 century.

Kohli amassed 593 runs in his side's five-test series against England a year ago at an average of more than 59 to book his place.

"Despite finishing on the losing side, India captain Virat Kohli shone with the bat, laying to rest his struggles in England in 2014", Wisden editor Lawrence Booth said.

Buttler joins Curran, having continued to be an integral part of England's superb limited-overs team while also excelling on his unexpected and unequivocally successful return to the Test arena.

Beaumont's moment might feel somewhat belated, coming a year later than her fellow 2017 World Cup winners Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Nat Sciver, but is richly deserved after another productive campaign.

In the year he slammed 11 centuries, of which seven came during the tour of South Africa, England and Australia.

He won twin accolades in the latest edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack.

There are also concerns over the potential impact of the new competition on England's existing domestic cricket structure, which is built upon 18 First Class counties.
