Just a clarification for you - Mishra came second in the Most Promising category, not as your headline suggests the main category. He actually came second to swimmer, David Dunford. Kipchirchir won the overall award. None the less, it is good to see a cricketer feature in the awards - it has been a while between drinks.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
