Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews has been named among Wisden’s five cricketers of the year while star batsman Kumar Sangakkara was named for the leading men’s cricketer in the world award.

This year’s five cricketers are Moeen Ali, Gary Ballance, Adam Lyth, Angelo Mathews and Jeetan Patel.

Australia’s captain Meg Lanning has become the inaugural winner of its Leading Woman Cricketer in the World award.

The Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who retired from one-day international cricket (ODI) following the recent World Cup and will play for Surrey this season, was named as the leading men’s cricketer in the world.

Sangakkara claimed the global award after winning the World Twenty20 with Sri Lanka and finishing with 2,868 runs in all formats – a record for a calendar year. “Choosing Sangakkara just felt natural,” added Booth. “And his four consecutive hundreds at the recently concluded World Cup confirmed we’d chosen the right man. We’ll miss him when he’s gone.”

    Only praise Sanga, Mathews is not a good captain.

    All our cricketers always played for country first. Wrong comment. Though someone may have done something after retiring.
