Sachin Tendulkar has been named Wisden's Leading Cricketer in the World for the year 2010, it was announced on Wednesday. The Indian batsman is the seventh recipient of the Wisden award.

Unlike the winners of Wisden's coveted five cricketers of the year, it is possible to be named the world's best in the almanack more than once. Tendulkar is making it an Indian hat-trick, after Test opener Virender Sehwag took the honour in each of the last two years.

Tendulkar, 37, in the 22nd year of his international career, made more than 1,500 Test runs and seven Test hundreds, including an unparalleled 50th overall, in the year 2010.
