New Delhi:

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has featured on the latest cover of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, following his spectacular leadership which guided India to a clean sweep of trophies in all three formats of their recent series against England.

Kohli, who scored two centuries in India's 4-0 Test series win before Christmas, including a career-best 235 in the fourth Test at Mumbai, has been shown playing a reverse sweep a reflection, according to Wisden's editor, Lawrence Booth, of the manner in which he has helped to revolutionise the sport in recent years.

"It underlines the fact that he is a very modern cricketer," Booth told ESPNcricinfo. "It felt like the right time to get some unorthodoxy onto the cover. People often think of Wisden as a bastion of orthodoxy, but cricket is changing so rapidly that it felt like the right time to reflect that, and Kohli was the right man for the job."
