The year 2012 was a special one for South African cricket as the Proteas became the number one ranked team in test cricket, winning four series during the course of the year. Cricket is a team sport, but within the South African team it also took some special individual performances to take it to the top.
The Wisden Cricketer's Almanack - known as the cricketer's Bible - has named South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis the Leading Cricketer in the World for 2007 in its 145th edition, which has just been released.
Jacques Kallis and Makhaya Ntini were honoured as two of SA's five cricketers of the year for a record-equalling fourth time at the launch of the 2005 South African Cricket Annual. Andre Nel was recognised for a second time, while AB de Villiers and Boeta Dippenaar were honoured for the first time.
