ICC Cricketer of the Year

ICC Cricketer of the Year

Sachin Tendulkar added yet another award to his memorabilia when he was named the ICC Cricketer of the Year during the 2010 ICC Awards Ceremony held at Bangalore. Sachin also received the people’s choice award after having a fabulous period where he scored 1064 runs in 10 tests at an average of 81.84 and also 917 runs in 17 ODI’s at 65.28 which also included the only double century ever scored in limited overs international cricket. He fought of stiff competition from Virender Sehwag, Hashim Amla and Graeme Swann to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the cricketer of the year.

However Sachin missed out on other awards in the major categories he was nominated in Sehwag was named the Test player of the year while A.B De Villiers was selected for the ODI player award. Graeme Swann, who had an outstanding season with the ball, had to contend himself with a place in the ICC test team of the year for which Mahendra Singh Dhoni was named the captain. The team also included Sehwag, Tendulkar, Sangakkara, Kallis, Amla, Steyn, Anderson, Katich and Bollinger.

Ricky Ponting, who failed to make the cut in all award categories, was named the captain for the ICC ODI team of the year which also featured Tendulkar, Dhoni and fellow Australians Watson, Mike Hussey, Bollinger and Ryan Harris.

Brendon McCullum won the award for the T20 Performance of the year for his swashbuckling 116* against Australia in Christchurch. There was double joy for the Kiwis as New Zealand won the Spirit of Cricket Award for the second consecutive time. Aleem Dar won the David Shepherd award as he was voted the best umpire for the second consecutive year fending off competition from Steve Davis, Tony Hill and Simon Taufel.

Hi, I am Monish Menon from Hyderabad and currently working at Franklin Templeton Investments as a Compliance Business Analyst. Sport has always been my passion since I was a kid and I invest all my non-existent free time by watching, playing, writing and analyzing various sporting events across the world. Apart from being a diehard Manchester United fan and a Ferrari supporter, I believe that Roger Federer is still the best tennis player and Sachin Tendulkar is God. I play club cricket and I also am a part of my organization’s cricket and football squad. Being such a sports fanatic, writing about it is something that came naturally to me and I am glad that I got an opportunity through thesportsmirror.com to share my thoughts with the rest of the world.
