Babar Azam Wins ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year Award for a Second Consecutive Year

Babar Azam, the all-format captain of Pakistan, has earned the ICC ODI Men’s Cricketer of the Year award for the second consecutive year.

Babar, who also received the prestigious award for 2021, overpowered Australia’s Adam Zampa, Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza, and the West Indies’ Shai Hope to clinch the title of ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year for 2022.

In 2022, Babar scored 679 runs from nine matches at an average of 84.87, including three centuries.

Babar carried on his astounding form in the 50-over format and crossed the fifty-plus score eight times and converted three of those into centuries. Babar finished the year with a stunning average of 84.87.

“There were match-winning knocks, spellbinding stroke play, and memorable moments from a personal perspective and for his team in 2022 as Pakistan skipper Babar Azam claimed the ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year Award for a second consecutive year,” said the ICC in a media release on Thursday.
