Veteran Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara has been named the Wisden 2015 “Leading cricketer of the year”.

Sangakkara was chosen by the magazine for his magnificent show of talent last year as he bagged a record 2868 runs, the most any batsman has scored in a year.

Wisden editor Lawrence Booth stated that Sangakkara’s man-of-the-match performance as Sri Lanka beat India in last year’s ICC World T20 final, and four successive hundreds at the recently concluded World Cup confirmed that the magazine had chosen the right man as the “Leading Cricketer of the Year”.

Sri Lanka’s one day international captain Angelo Mathews was also named as one of the five Cricketers of the Year along with Moeen Ali, Gary Ballance, Adam Lyth and Jeetan Patel.
