Shai Hope among Wisden Five Cricketers of the Year

London, England, April 11 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Shai Hope, the gifted Barbados Pride and West Indies batsman is among the Wisden Five Cricketers of the Year for 2017.

In the 2018 edition, Hope is joined by three members of the England Women’s World Cup-winning team - Anya Shrubsole, Heather Knight and Nat Sciver - and Jamie Porter of Essex.

The 24-year-old Hope stood out for his record twin hundreds in a winning cause in the second Test against England at Headingley, Leeds.

He hit his maiden Test century - 147 and 118 not out, helping to spur West Indies to a memorable five-wicket win.

It was the 534th first-class match at Headingley but the first to see a batsman scoring two centuries.

Winners receive a commemorative edition of the Almanack, which is published today.

Shrubsole  also becomes the first woman to feature on the cover.

For the second year running, India’s Virat Kohli is named Leading Cricketer in the World - matching compatriot Virender Sehwag's achievement in 2008 and 2009 - while another of the competitors in the Women's World Cup final at Lord's, India captain Mithali Raj, wins the Leading Women's Cricketer accolade.

Afghanistan's teenage sensation, Rashid Khan, is the inaugural winner of a new award for the foremost T20 player in the game.

Previously, only two women have won places among Wisden's Five - Claire Taylor (2009) and Charlotte Edwards (2014) - a tradition that dates back to 1889 and is judged on performances during the English summer, with no player able to be named more than once.
