The English all-rounder Ben Stokes played impressive cricket in the last year. He guided the England cricket team to win their first-ever Cricket World Cup when they achieved victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Stokes won the Player of the Match award in the final of that tournament. Also, he played an important role for England to rescue them from losing the Ashes 2019, which had the 2-2 result. He won the Player of the Series award along with Steven Smith (Australia) at the end of the Ashes 2019, but Smith won the Compton–Miller Medal.

The Indian right-arm pacer Deepak Chahar was one of the best findings in international cricket in the last year. On 10th November 2019, when the hosts India were playing the series-decider final game of the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, Deepak Chahar created a record by delivering the best-ever bowling figures in T20I history (3.2-0-7-6). While India finished that game and series with the victory by 30 runs, Chahar finished that match with a hat-trick, which was the first T20I hat-trick by any Indian bowler.

The year of 2019 was the dream year for the new Australian star Marnus Labuschagne. Though he made his Test debut in October 2018, everybody experienced his true calibre when he had to replace the in-form Steven Smith during the Ashes 2019. While Smith’s injury brought him a sudden chance, Labuschagne grabbed that opportunity at the master level. Later, in the home season, Labuschagne was unstoppable in Test cricket. In 2019, he scored 1,104 runs in 11 Tests (17 innings) with an average of 64.94.

While India beat Australia (by 36 runs) at The Oval in the round-robin stage of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Indian captain Virat Kohli was in the centre of the news for his great gesture that became the picture of the cricket spirit. Former Australian captain Steven Smith was booed by the ground spectators for his leadership role in the ball-tampering scandal during the 2018 Cape Town Test. While the stadium was overloaded by the Indian fans, some of the Indian fans involved in that incident.

Unhappy Virat Kohli, who was batting at that time, showed a gesture from the ground to the spectators, which meant telling them to stop their negative chanting on Smith. Soon after that, during the break, Smith shook his hand with Kohli.
