Curran, who does not turn 21 until June, joined England team-mate Jos Buttler, his Surrey skipper Rory Burns, the prolific Tammy Beaumont and India captain Virat Kohli in being honoured in the prestigious almanack's 156th edition.

Kohli had notched up 593 runs in five Tests at an average of 59.3 during India's 1-4 loss to England and ended the year with five centuries to his name.

Kohli's fellow Indian Smriti Mandhana landed the women's award, with Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan keeping his title as leading Twenty20 cricketer in the world.

UK FM says he's against military rule in Sudan
Reacting to the military's conciliatory statement on Friday, Khartoum resident Tagreed Abdin told the BBC she was not reassured. Celebrations at al-Bashir's departure at the main Khartoum protest quickly shifted into calls for much broader reform.

Virat Kohli became the first player to win the award for leading cricketer in the world in three successive years. Kohli was picked for the third straight year after a supremely successful year in 2018 where he scored 2735 runs across the three formats. Curran, who made his ODI and Test debuts, also helped Surrey to the County Championship title previous year. He was also in top form during the tour of England, the only country he had not done well in before.

Opening batsman Burns, who captains Surrey's red-ball side, was the Championship's leading run-scorer and subsequently made his England Test debut.

Kohli, however, was the sport's dominant figure in 2018, making 2735 global runs at 68.37 across all formats, more than 700 more than his nearest challenger, England's Joe Root.

Hazard 'very happy' about Zidane's Real Madrid return
Pogba will see his £300,000-a-week dramatically reduced, and Real could use that as inspiration to move for the Frenchman. Hazard has scored 19 times and contributed 12 assists in 42 appearances for his London club during the 2018-19 campaign.

England Women opener Beaumont scored her side's fastest T20 hundred, a 47-ball effort against South Africa, while her tally of 628 runs was a record for England in a home summer, trumping Jan Brittin's 595 in 1984.

The Five Cricketers of the Year were chosen by Lawrence Booth, the editor of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, with the 2019 version serving as the156th edition.

The 20-year-old Sam Curran came into limelight with his impressive performances both in domestic with Surrey and on the worldwide stage with England. This included 11 centuries.
