Virat Kohli has emerged as the most successful Indian and international cricketer, but this year the focus shifts to matches in England and Australia. Kohli is already the statistician's delight; if he does well abroad, he will become history's darling too, says Suresh Menon in his editor's notes.

Mithali Raj's team changed the language of discourse in Indian cricket. Not surprisingly, therefore, Deepti Sharma, a star at the World Cup is one of the 'Cricketers of the Year' while Shantha Rangaswamy, India's first woman superstar, has been inducted into the Wisden India Hall of Fame alongside Erapalli Prasanna.

Priyank Panchal, Hasan Ali and Tamim Iqbal are the other Cricketers of the Year.
