India captain Rohit Sharma and pacer Jasprit Bumrah have been named as the "Five Cricketers of the Year" 

the 2022 edition of the Wisden Almanack. England pacer Ollie Robinson, 

South African women's player Dane van Niekerk and New Zealand opener Devon Conway among others have made their place.

Former England captain Joe Root has been named the world's leading cricketer, South Africa's Lizelle Lee has been named 

the world's leading female cricketer and Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan has been named the leading T20 cricketer.

Wisden, the world's oldest and most important historian of cricket, selects five cricketers 

each year as part of a revered practice dating back to 1889. The emphasis is on the previous 

English summer and no one can be selected more than once. Virat Kohli was the last Indian to feature in the list in 2019. 

Sharma and Bumrah were at the top of India's average as the tourists took a 2-1 lead last summer in the five-match series, 

which is set to end in July this year after a covid. The last Test in Manchester had to be canceled due to the outbreak.
