Where are the top 5 batsmen of the year 2012?

We saw de Villier continue to maintain his form to the highest level. He’s made this 5 times consecutively, which makes him the most consistent Batsman of them all in the 2009-2013 period. Virat Kohli also remained in Top 5! Watch out for the next level between AB and Kohli!

1. Amla (SA) 26
2. AB de Villiers (SA) 1
3. Virat Kohli (Ind) 5
4. Jamshed (Pak) played just 2 matches and was removed
5. Watling (NZ) did not play

And the Indians? India is way ahead of everyone with 5 batsmen in top 30. Shikhar Dhawan is at the Top at #3. Virat Kohli continued his astounding form at No #9. Rohit Sharma and Dhoni are next.
