Hyderabad: Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara on Thursday expressed happiness on being named Wisden's leading cricketer in the world and one of its five cricketers of the year.
"It's a great honour. Very humbled and privileged. I have had a good year in 2011. Hopefully, I will have a couple of more fruitful years before I finish," Sangakkara, the captain of the IPL franchise Deccan Chargers, told reporters here at an event.
Sangakkara said that Australian cricketer Ian Healy's advice on wicketkeeping helped him a lot.
