The 155th edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack names three female players - Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Nat Sciver - among its Five Cricketers of the Year. Virat Kohli makes it his second year in a row as the Leading Cricketer in the World. Editor Lawrence Booth writes about why England's Test team has gone backwards, and says the board lost control during the Ben Stokes affair. Elsewhere, Tanya Aldred looks at sexism in cricket, Andy Zaltzman analyses James Anderson's route to 500 Test wickets, and Simon Wilde reflects on the England men's path to their 1000th Test.
