congrats to Red for winning this :salute

interesting though, that Red's winning total would only have secured 5th place last year. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with the high number of ODI's played in this world cup year, which I imagine has greatly reduced the number of test matches played

We also removed the 5 points per maiden over rule

It has been a noticeably tighter year though

Live update

If Rashid Khan scores 15 runs or more in this innings he will overtake Ben Stokes in sixth position for the year

In order to succeed in our list you need to run like a train; regular, persistent and accurate. Last year Rashid Khan was working like a train that Mussolini would have been proud of. Five Cricketer of the Week awards were spread throughout the year as the Afghanistani sensation travelled the world dazzling his opponents. This year Rashid's gravy train has rather dried up. This week has seen a revival back to something like his best form however it is too little and too late to call this anything close to a success but it does lend us a glimpse of what used to be. This is most evident in his second to last game of the season where he excelled with bat and ball and achieved something that eluded him throughout 2019 - points for his economy. Throughout 2018, Rashid would more often than not couple regular wickets with strangling economy; this has not been the case this year however, raging against the dying of the light, he has shown us a glimpse of what used to be. His 271 points this week makes him one of two players to overtake Rohit Sharma to settle in 6th place for the season - overtaking Stokes in the very last game of the season. When he walked out at number 7 he needed 15 runs to haul Stokes in. He took just nine balls to reach that landmark - eventually out for an eighteen ball 40. As the Rashid express draws out of the station, it is not behind the realms of possibility we may see him in the 2021 list. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

The year has been won by Glenn Maxwell. And nobody would begrudge him the victory. The Australian has been leading our overall List since Week 9 and has done so representing Australia, Lancashire and Melbourne Stars. For a player to have been so dominant throughout a year without having to resort to hit-and-hope T20 competitions is impressive indeed. His lead of 895 points ahead of Simon Harmer has been hovering over the 1000 point mark since the Summer, however once seemed in threat. When Maxwell announced that he was stepping away from cricket for an indeterminate period of time, his lead on the South African was 738. With the Mzansi Super League about to swing into action, many expected Simon Harmer to be destructive for his Johannesburg outfit much as he was last year. This failed to come to pass as both Harmer and his franchise looked stilted throughout the competition eventually leading to Harmer being dropped from the team that he used to captain. The closest he managed to get to our runaway leader was 597 points just prior to his deselection. When Maxwell returned to his own home T20 competition and The Big Show proved he was still worth the admission fee, it truly was game over. A well deserved winner and another strong contender in 2020 - after all, it is a T20 World Cup year.

Several of our Cricketers have leapt away from their previous position this week as if they were bachelors just before the stroke of midnight, leaping away from their less favoured partners and towards more appealing options before the stroke of midnight. Rashid was just one of six Cricketers to move up the overall list. Most significantly so was Ben Stokes, who yet again was the stand out performer in an under strength England side and managed to accrue 226 points across a warm up game and the first Test against South Africa. Not good enough to lead his team to another miraculous victory but enough to see him overtake Rohit Sharma to take 6th position in his first year on our list. He was not the only Englishman to manoeuvre an Indian out of position just before the final reckoning. Bairstow has had a poor year with only a strong IPL outing being something for the Yorkshireman to hang his hat on. There is a clamour for the Englishman to be given a spell away from the national side - something that was in the offing before the sickness bug debilitated the squad - and his nine runs has not changed many people's minds. It was, however, just enough for him to pip Shreyas Iyer, who himself had a disappointing week comprising of just 7 runs against West Indies. It is not all doom and gloom for our Indian contingent as two of their number also made an upward move this week. Shubman Gill's hundred for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy saw him leap three places and finish 16th in our 24 man list. Kuldeep Yadav's year has been a disappointment and this week is no different. The Indian spinner added just 10 points to his total from the final ODI against the West Indies however this was enough to see him overtake Abdur Razzak and finish 21st for the year. The other mover was Callum Ferguson whose strong second half to the season sees him finish 14th.

For the last year we have been monitoring the top 24 Cricketers in the world; but who has finished top of The Cricket List?

10. Jonny Bairstow




Total points: 3836

Gap from next position: 40

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 1

Highest Scoring Week: 318 in Week 8 – 178 runs in three games for Hyderabad in the IPL set the Yorkshireman on a course to finish 10th in the overall highest run scorers – despite withdrawing two games early.

Summary: A strong IPL and a World Cup medal will be solace for Jonny Bairstow as his form for England has largely been disappointing. A break from national duty is expected in 2020.


9. Shakib Al Hasan



Total points: 3862

Gap from next position: 26

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 2

Highest Scoring Week: 314 in Week 4 – Runs and wickets in the BPL helped Shakib move into the top spot overall – a place he held for 5 weeks.

Summary: The stink of corruption pollutes Shakib Al Hasan’s inclusion on this list. In fifth place when he was banned for 2 years by the ICC in October, it is lamentable he built up enough of a lead that he did not slip out of the Top Ten for the year.







8. Rohit Sharma



Total points: 4308

Gap from next position: 446

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 4

Highest Scoring Week: 469 in Week 27 – The highest weekly score of the year went to Rohit’s week of three Word Cup centuries where he got three figures against England, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Summary: One of the few Indian players to have escaped the World Cup with their reputations improved, Rohit Sharma boosted his overall total by 967 during the tournament.



7. Ben Stokes



Total points: 4410

Gap from next position: 102

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 3

Highest Scoring Week: 359 in Week 5 – No it’s not the week you thought it was. Stokes’ pinnacle in 2019 came long before the World Cup final and even longer before Headingley. Stokes was one of the only saving graces in England’s tour of West Indies and this week his performance with the ball gave him his inaugural Cricketer of the Week accolade.

Summary: One of the true stars of World sport in 2019, Stokes falls just outside the top 5 in our List. His number of inactive weeks across the year has held him back but it will be an unforgettable year for the Durham man.

6. Rashid Kahn



Total points: 4475

Gap from next position: 65

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 3

Highest Scoring Week: 465 in Week 37 – Perhaps fittingly, Rashid saved his best week for his beloved Afghanistan’s Test win against Bangladesh. A performance that has almost been forgotten, Rashid got 75 runs and 10 wickets in a show of all round dominance.

Summary: Down from second last year and nearly two thousand points worse off, Rashid’s year has been worse than 2018 however lingers spectre-like just outside the top 5. He saved some of his best performances for the national team that idolises him so.




5. Joe Root



Total points: 4542

Gap from next position: 67

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 2

Highest Scoring Week: 362 in Week 8 – Strangely his highest score of the year came in a week where Shreyas Iyer won Cricketer of the Week but 138 runs in two ODIs against the West Indies saw his zenith in 2019.

Summary: An improvement of five places from the 2018 List plus the World Cup under his belt represents a pretty good year for Joe Root. Criticism swirls but the England man’s form has improved.




4. Virat Kohli




Total points: 4554

Gap from next position: 2

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 3

Highest Scoring Week: 374 in Week 33 – Kohli has a penchant for scoring ridiculous amounts of runs against West Indies and did so this week. His back to back centuries forced him into the top 5 for the first time in the year.

Summary: Consecutive years at Number 4 in The Cricket List shows the consistency of the India captain. A rather disappointing World Cup was bolstered by strong performances against the West Indies helped bolster his overall position.


3. Jeetan Patel



Total points: 4843

Gap from next position: 289

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 2

Highest Scoring Week: 373 in Week 23 – June was a phenomenal month for Patel culminating in the veteran Warwickshire captain getting match figures of 10/88 against Nottinghamshire.

Summary: Age does not weary Jeetan Patel as he finishes in third position for the second year in a row. The veteran New Zealander got 64 County Championship wickets this year – the third most in the division.


2. Simon Harmer



Total points: 5115

Gap from next position: 272

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 8

Highest Scoring Week: 428 in Week 39 – The last of his Cricketer of the Week accolades and probably one of the biggest days of his cricketing career. The week started with two Man of the Match performances in the T20 Blast finals and ended with the successful defence of the County Championship trophy.

Summary: Down one position from last year, it has nonetheless been a phenomenal year for the South African. Firmly cemented as an Essex legend, he ends the year with the most Cricketer of the Week wins for the second year in a row.




1. Glenn Maxwell

Total points: 6010

Gap from next position: 895

Number of Cricketer of the Weeks awarded: 5

Highest Scoring Week: 402 in Week 16 – His fourth Cricketer of the Week award came through three Royal London One Day Cup games in a week. His highlight was his career best bowling figure of 5-40 against Middlesex.

Summary: Top of the weekly list since the end of February, it would have been the greatest injustice if The Big Show did not finish top for the year. A quietly extraordinary year for the Australian.
