Wisden's cricketers of the year

Some folks are up in arms over the fact that Wisden named 5 Englishmen as their "Cricketers of the Year"....Yeah I would probably tend to agree that 2004 was indeed a good year for the Englishmen....but naming 5 of them as cricketers of the raises a slight stink....
What happened to Lara/Gilly/Sehwag (to an extent)/Kumbles (amazing comeback)/Ponting/Murali/Kallis (that amazing stretch he went thru) etc?
All said and done, Wisden is by the English, of the English and for the English :)!
Cant wait for the Aussies to rip 'em in the Ashes...then let's see how many they might nominate in 2005 :)! Was talking to a friend about it the other day...and he seems to think it's going to be an Aussie whitewash...the Britishers on campus however have their hopes riding high!
