The Wisden Cricketers of the Year are cricketers selected for the honour by the annual publication Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. This year five cricketers have made it to the Wisden Cricketers of the Year List.
The South African trio Jacques Kallis, Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn join England batsman Nick Compton, and West Indian Marlon Samuels.
The cricketers of the year are nominated for their achievements in the previous English summer.
Meanwhile Australia captain Michael Clarke was named leading cricketer in the world after a 2012 aggregate of 1595 runs, including a score of 329 not out against India in Sydney.
Congratulations to all these Cricketers …
