The winners of the ICC Awards 2022 are going to be announced from Monday. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced this. Through this award, players who have excelled in various formats of the game will be honored, including the Men’s Cricketer of the Year and Women’s Cricketer of the Year awards. First of all, the T20 team of the year for men and women will be announced on Monday.
Five players from India in the race
If seen, five players from India are in the race for these awards. Suryakumar Yadav is at the forefront of the race to become T20 Player of the Year. At the same time, Smriti Mandhana’s name is in the list of women’s cricketer of the year. The names of Arshdeep Singh, Yastika Bhatia and Renuka Singh are included in the list of emerging players. Arshdeep Singh has been selected for the men’s category, while Yastika and Renuka’s names have been included in the women’s category.
Mandhana won the award last time as well
Smriti Mandhana has been the ICC’s best female cricketer for the year 2021 as well, so she is in the running for this award for the second time in a row. Last year, Smriti Mandhana was the highest run-scorer for India across all formats. He scored 594 runs in T20 and 696 runs in ODIs. Along with this, Smriti Mandhana also played brilliantly in Commonwealth Games and Women’s World Cup.
England’s Test team captain Ben Stokes is a strong contender to become the Cricketer of the Year. Under Stokes’ captaincy, England won nine out of ten Tests last year. He also scored 870 runs which included two centuries. Apart from this, last year he took 26 wickets. England recently whitewashed Pakistan 3-0 under Stokes’ captaincy. Apart from Ben Stokes, Babar Azam, Sikandar Raza and Tim Southee are in the race to become ICC Cricketer of the Year.
