The captain of the Pakistan cricket team Babar Azam has been awarded the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year.
In 2022, he accumulated 2598 runs in 44 matches with an average of 54.12 and hit 8 centuries and 15 half-centuries.
For the second consecutive year, a Pakistani player has been awarded the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy, with Shaheen Afridi winning it in the previous year.
ICC stated in a press release, “It’s hard to believe that Babar Azam even further elevated his game during 2022 as the inspirational skipper broke more individual records and ensured Pakistan’s star continued to shine brightly,”
“Babar was the only player to breach the 2000-run mark during the calendar year across all formats.
“His haul of eight hundreds and 17 fifties during the calendar year was Babar’s best of his career to date and there’s no doubt the dynamic right-hander is currently at the top of his game.”
