Indian batting star Shikhar Dhawan has earned top honours by being named in the prestigious Wisden's list of Five Cricketers of the Year, an honour dating back to 1889, for his 2013 performance.


The Five Cricketers of the Year are Dhawan, Australia players Chris Rogers and Ryan Harris, England batsman Joe Root and England women's captain Charlotte Edwards.

Dhawan was acknowledged for his role in India's victorious Champions Trophy campaign in England, in which he was the highest run-scorer, amassing 363 runs in five ODIs at an average of 90.75 and was awarded the Man of the Series for his performance that included centuries against South Africa and West Indies.

The Cricketer of the Year is chosen by the editor of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, based on their 'excellence in, or performance on, the previous English summer' and it can be won only once in a player's career.
