Published on 22 December, 2016 at 4:00 pm By

International Cricket Council (ICC) on December 22 named Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin as their Test Cricketer of the Year 2016, as well as their Cricketer of the Year 2016.

Tamil Nadu off-spinner in 2015-16 had an outstanding season, and in the eight Test matches that he played during the voting period (Sep 2015, 2016), he took 48 wickets and scored 336 runs in Test.

 


His outstanding Test Cricket performance also won him the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for being the Cricketer of the Year 2016 and he has now joined the league of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar of achieving this feat.

While Ashwin’s accomplishment is getting a lot of praises, he is the only Indian to win an ICC Award this year.

 




Though India’s Test Captain, Virat Kohli, has been named as the Captain of the ICC’s ODI Team, many have expressed shock about the fact that his name is missing from the ICC’s Test Team.

 


While we understand people’s shock over Kohli’s name being missing from the Test Team list, especially looking at his recent performance, one needs to understand that the awards are only being given for the performance between 14 September 2015 till 20 September 2016.

In 2016 Kohli scored 1215 runs in 12 Test matches at an average of 75.93, but between September 2015 and September 2016 he only played 8 Test matches and scored 451 runs, with an innings against West Indies where is scored 200 runs.

So while we understand people’s confusion over him not being named in the ICC Test team, we also understand why ICC has not included him.

Let’s just wait for ICC Awards, 2017 people.
