Before people start going on about how such & such should have got named among the Wisden 5 cricketers of the year remember 3 things.
1. It's for 2016 only.
2. It's for the English season only.
3. A player can only be made one of the 5 Wisden Cricketers of the year once in their career.

Mick, not sure you're right on number 2.

VK hasn't made runs in whites in England.

England toured India in like November, and this is for his his 4 home doubles (and wt20 runs)

Wisden keep changing their rules.

Pakistan toured England and hence Misbah and YK get preferential treatment, tho.
If any moderator or administrator is able to add Going South to my foe list, I would greatly appreciate it.

What is this England obsession by everyone?
We got 10 cricket nations.
Not all get good grades on all 10.
Everyone bound to miss one country or other.
Get over it.
Look at the big picture with big MATURED heart.
Thanks

I was only refering to the Wisden 5 Cricketers of the year, an award that goes back before about 1880, Kohlis award is for the Wisdens leading Cricketer in the world, which is a fairly new award. Sorry for any confusion.

I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM with Kohli being awarded the Leading Cricketer for 2016, which is a totally seperate award to Wisdens 5 Cricketers of the year. Wisden is an English Cricket yearbook, which centers mainly on the English Cricket season and also covers all FC & List A comps from around the world.
AND THE LEADING CRICKETER IS AWARDED FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL CRICKET IN 2016 NOT JUST ENGLAND, THEY ARE 2 DIFFERENT AWARDS.

Wisden award that I am aware is one that is given for performance in English season, so it mostly go to players who perform in that season (year) in England. It typically has one (or two) overseas player touring England that year and doing well there while others are English players who mostly do well in England domestic season. Seeing that England is not necessarily the strongest cricketing team these days, I do not think this award carries the same prestige now a days compared to the past.

Dravid (2000) and Laxman (2002) are the last two Indian batsman who were chosen for this award based on their performance in that English season while touring there with BCCI. Nawab Pataudi (1968), B Chandrashekhar (1972), Gavaskar (1980), Kapildev (1983), Mohinder Amarnath (1984), Vengsarkar (1987), Azharuddin (1991), Kumble (1996) and Tendulkar (1997) have also won it. Kohli so far has not won this award because he has not done anything of note while touring England.

The award that Kohli has won is a different (and new) award called "Wisden LEADING cricketer of the year" awardand it is given for performance all over the world. It is a new award (started in 2004) and it is different from "Wisden cricketer of the award" that is being given for more than a century.

You are either English or you are for world. Don't call that award as "world cricket" awards if it's meant for English cricketers only.

Reminds of "World Series" games in USA sports.

Yes its understandable of other country supporter but I found Raja and my in-Laws, act
Strange (such as shuts down TV, change channel, or wish BCCI loose series) whenever BCCI win or good news pops up for India.

Actually the Baseball World Series was named by the editor of a Newspapar called "The World", its not meant to be the World Championship.
