RCBians rake in the nominations for ICC Awards
On the back of his terrific ODI, T20 and debut Test season, Virat finds himself nominated for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy – ICC Cricketer of the Year and for ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year.
AB de Villiers picked up a nomination for the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year and one for the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award, a category where his fellow nominee is his RCB teammate Daniel Vettori.
Tillakaratne Dilshan and Chris Gayle have both been nominated for ICC Men’s Twenty20 International Performance of the Year. Dilshan’s nomination was for a captain’s electric knock - his unbeaten ton against Australia in August 2011. Chris Gayle’s nomination came for his thundering return to international cricket against NZ with a brutal 85* in Florida in June 2012.
