The Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year and the ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year trophies were given to Babar Azam on Wednesday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore by Najam Sethi, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee.

Azam received the honours last week for his outstanding performance in 2022.

In 44 games in 2022, he amassed 2598 runs at an average of 54.12, with eight hundreds and fifteen half-centuries.

Shaheen Afridi, who won the award last year, is the second Pakistani player to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy in a row.

“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,” the ICC said in a press release.

“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.”

Azam was also selected as the leader of the 2022 ICC ODI Team of the Year.

Azam was the captain of the ICC ODI Team of the Year in 2021, it should be highlighted.

He received the ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year award for a second consecutive year. He was the first person from Pakistan to get this honour.

The ICC Voting Academy, which includes a larger range of international cricket journalists and broadcasters, as well as cricket fans who participated in the vote through the ICC’s digital media, determines the winners of the ICC Awards.

The Performance Period for the awards was January 1 – December 31, 2022.
