The contenders for one coveted spot are as many as 10. Australian opener David Warner, who scored 1,213 runs in 21 innings at 57.76, and a strike-rate of 80.11, is a strong contender. So is England captain Alastair Cook, who scored three vital hundreds last year, including the big 263. Chris Rogers, who later announced his retirement from the game, got crucial runs at the top of the order.

Similarly, India’s Ajinkya Rahane accumulated runs in all the countries in diverse conditions. While Adam Voges made a sensational late debut followed by a dream-run, the young guns Joe Root, Kane Williamson and Steve Smith scored runs at will. Pakistan’s batting stalwarts Younis Khan and Mohammad Hafeez too did well in 2015.
