England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been named as the leading cricketer in the world in the 2020 edition of Wisden Cricketer' Almanack while the English have waited for almost 15 years as it was 2005 for the last time Andrew Flintoff had been registered as top player of Wisden for England.  

Stokes has been named for a remarkable show in 2019 when he guided England to their maiden World Cup trophy and his match-winning knock against Australia in the Headingley Test during the Ashes.

This year the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli could not be enlisted in top five cricketers in this edition who was selected as the top cricketer for the three formats in the last year. 

Here is the full list of winners:
Wisden Five Cricketers of the Year: Pat Cummins, Ellyse Perry, Jofra Archer, Simon Harmer, Marnus Labuschagne.
Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World: Ben Stokes.
Wisden's Leading T20 Cricketer: Andre Russell.
Wisden Leading Woman Cricketer in the World: Ellyse Perry.
