Kohli is leading cricketer in the world for third consecutive year

Tamsin Beaumont, England's destructive opening batswoman, has been named one of the five Cricketers of the Year by Wisden on Wednesday.

Kohli, 30, has been named as the Leading Cricketer in the World for the third time in a row in the latest edition of the respected Wisden Cricketers' Almanack.

Players can be picked by Wisden only once in their career with the prize awarded primarily for feats achieved during the preceding English domestic season. Curran, who made his ODI and Test debuts, also helped Surrey to the County Championship title previous year.

All-rounder Curran, 20, is the youngest Englishman to make the list in a century, having been named Man of the Series as England beat top-ranked Test nation India 4-1 at home last summer. He was also in top form during the tour of England, the only country he had not done well in before.

He scored more runs than any of his colleagues following his recall in the five-day format, including a maiden hundred against the Indians at Trent Bridge.

Buttler is known for his skill and power across all formats for England.

The leading first-class run scorer in England, Rory Burns passed 1000 runs for Surrey while captaining the side to its first County Championship title since 2002.

She averaged 50.22 from nine one-day internationals in 2018, and made back-to-back centuries against South Africa during the summer.

Mandhana was rewarded for scoring 669 and 662 runs in ODIs and T20Is past year.

Kohli, the sport's biggest star, is the only overseas name among the quintet.

The achievement of the Indian captain in being dubbed the leading world cricketer for the third consecutive year is unprecedented in the 156 years-old history of the publication - considered as the 'Bible of cricket'.

Afghanistan's Rashid Khan was named the world's leading Twenty20 cricketer for a second year running.

"It is a real honour to be named as one of Wisden's five Cricketers of the Year".
