Old Peterite Jonny Bairstow has been named as one of Wisden’s Cricketers of the Year.

Other Cricketers of the Year include England teammate Ben Stokes, Australia captain Steve Smith, New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum and fellow Kiwi Kane Williamson.

The coveted awards, which began in 1889, are a central feature of the annual Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, the 153rd edition of which was published on Thursday.
