Kohli, Jadeja nominated for ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year, Ashwin for Test honours

Indian cricket stalwarts Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja have been nominated for the prestigious ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year award, while renowned off-spinner R Ashwin is in contention for the Test Cricketer of the Year honour. The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced these nominations on Friday, highlighting the significant contributions of these players.

Kohli and Jadeja find themselves in an elite list that also includes Australian skipper Pat Cummins and his teammate Travis Head, all vying for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy. Ashwin, on the other hand, faces stiff competition from Head, Usman Khawaja of Australia, and England's veteran batsman Joe Root.

In 2023, Kohli was a batting powerhouse, scoring a total of 2048 runs across 35 matches in Tests and ODIs. His remarkable achievements included surpassing Sachin Tendulkar's record with his 50th one-day hundred during the World Cup. Jadeja's all-round performance was equally impressive, accumulating 613 runs and taking 66 wickets in 35 matches. This included a remarkable 22-wicket haul against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Cummins, apart from his 422 runs and 59 wickets in 24 matches, led Australia to several significant victories, including the Ashes, the WTC Final, and the ODI World Cup. Head's batting prowess was on full display, amassing 1698 runs in 31 matches, highlighted by centuries in both the WTC Final and the ODI World Cup final, with both tons coming against India.

Ashwin's remarkable year saw him top the ICC Test bowling rankings, claiming 41 wickets at an average of 17.02, including a record number of five-wicket hauls in Tests. Root played a pivotal role in England's Test success, scoring 787 runs in eight Tests with an impressive average of 65.58. Australian opener Khawaja led the Test run charts, scoring 1210 runs at an average of 52.60, including three centuries.

The Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy for ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year features nominees Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka), Ashleigh Gardner (Australia), Beth Mooney (Australia), and Nat Sciver-Brunt (England), showcasing the breadth of talent in women's cricket.
