Wisden Cricketers of the Year 2021

Kent pair Zak Crawley (WH 11-16) and Darren Stevens have been named as two of Wisden's Five Cricketers of the Year for 2021.

2021 Wisden Cricketer of the Year: Zak Crawley

If anyone fully announced themselves onto the world stage in cricket over the last year, then it is Zak Crawley.

The Kent batsman went into 2020 having just made his Test debut in November 2019, and over the course of twelve months has cemented his name as part of England’s batting line-up.

Following some good performances in South Africa including a wonderful parried catch off Ben Stokes in Cape Town, Crawley lit the world alight with a mammoth score of 267 against Pakistan in August, his maiden three-figure score in Test cricket.

For Kent, Crawley returned to county cricket after England commitments to hit a 94-ball Bob Willis Trophy century against Hampshire at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, before becoming the sixth Kent star in the Club’s history to have scored a hundred in all formats for the county; smashing 108 not out from 54 balls at in a T20 against the same opponents at The Ageas Bowl.

The then-22-year-old was awarded an England central contract in September 2020, as well as being named PCA Young Player of the Year.
