South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has been named as Wisden's Leading Cricketer in the World for 2013 for his performance, in which he took 51 Test wickets in only nine games at an average of 17.


The Five Cricketers of the Year, an honour dating back to 1889, are Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan, Australia duo Chris Rogers and Ryan Harris, England batsman Joe Root and England women's captain Charlotte Edwards.

According to Sport24, 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.

Dhawan was acknowledged for his role in India's victorious Champions Trophy campaign in England while opener Rogers, fast bowler Harris and Root were chosen for their contributions to the 2013 Ashes, the report added.
