More accolades for Kohli: Wisden Leading Cricketer for 3rd straight year
For the third year in a row, Wisden Almanack named Virat Kohli as ‘Leading Cricketer in the World’. Commenting on Kohli’s performance during India’s tour of England last year, Wisden Editor Lawrence Booth said that despite finishing on losing side, ‘Kohli shone with the bat’. ‘His 50-over form moved to a new level, if that was possible’, said Booth. Kohli also won the ICC’s Cricketer, test and one-day player of the year awards in January 2019.
