Ben Stokes Brings Home ‘Cricketer of the Year’ Award

During the ICC Awards ceremony, Stokes led the way after winning the Sir Garfield Sobers awards for the Cricketer of the Year.

There is no doubt that Ben Stokes had a successful 2019, from the World Cup final chase to the intense fourth-innings run chase at Leeds. 

The run-way choice for the ‘Test Cricketer of the Year’ award was Pat Cummins, after picking up 59 wickets in 23 innings and following on the Test wickets chart is Nathan Lyon with 45 wickets in 23 innings. 

Here is a list of the winners at the ICC Awards Ceremony:

  • Player of the Year: Ben Stokes (England)

  • Test Cricketer of the Year: Pat Cummins (Australia)

  • ODI Cricketer of the Year: Rohit Sharma (India)

  • Emerging Cricketer of the Year: Marnus Labuschagne (Australia)

  • Spirit of Cricket Award: Virat Kohli (India)

  • T20I Performance of the Year: Deepak Chahar's 6 for 7 against Bangladesh

  • Umpire of the Year: Richard Illingworth (England)

  • Associate Player of the Year: Kyle Coetzer (Scotland)

Sharma is the ‘ODI Cricketer of the Year’ after scoring seven ODI hundreds, five of which were from the 2019 World Cup. The Indian opener scored 648 runs in the World Cup, only 25 runs away from Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 673 runs in the 2003 World Cup. 

Kohli won the ‘ICC Spirit of Cricket’ award for his gesture in a match against Australia during the 2019 World Cup. The cameras caught his opposition towards the crowd’s hostile talking on Steve Smith from the other team.
