Rizwan Nominated For T20 Player of The Year Award

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the nominees for the T20 Player of the Year and four players along with Pakistan’s Muhammad Rizwan have been nominated for the award.

In T20 cricket, the year 2021 was named after Muhammad Rizwan who set many world records in a single year.

The Pakistan wicket-keeper-batsman scored a total of 1,326 runs in 29 T20 Internationals at an average of 73.66 and a strike rate of 134.89, the most by any player in a single year.

He scored the first T20 century of his career against South Africa in Lahore earlier this year and then ended the year with an 87-run innings against the West Indies.

Meanwhile, he played the most memorable innings against India in the T20 World Cup when Pakistan achieved the target of 152 runs without any loss against the traditional rival and in this innings also Rizwan played an innings of 79 runs off 55 balls.

Rizwan also made 24 catches behind the wickets, making him the strongest candidate for the award.

Along with Rizwan, England’s Jose Butler, Sri Lanka’s Vinando Hasaranga and Australia’s Mitchell Marsh have also been nominated for the award.

Sri Lankan spinner Vinandu Hasaranga also took 36 wickets in 20 matches in 2021 and became the world’s number one bowler.

In this regard, the T20 World Cup was very memorable for him in which he was the most successful bowler with 16 wickets.

Hasaranga had a memorable bowling performance in the World Cup match in South Africa and took three wickets for 20 runs while hat-trick.

2021 was a memorable year for Australian cricketer Mitchell Marsh, who scored 627 runs in 27 matches and took 8 wickets.

Marsh, who returned to the game this year with great fitness, also played well in the World Cup and scored 185 runs in 6 matches with a strike rate of 146.

Like Pakistan, England wicketkeeper-batsman Jose Butler also played well in 2021 and scored 589 runs in 14 matches at an average of 65.44.

He scored his first World Cup century this year and was England’s most successful batsman in the event with 269 runs.

In the T20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka, he played a memorable game and played an innings of 101 off 67 balls with the help of six fours and six sixes, thanks to which the England team won the match by 26 runs.

Jose Butler also took 13 wickets in 2021.

After Muhammad Rizwan in 2021, the highest score of 939 was scored by national team captain Babar Azam but surprisingly he was not even nominated for the award.
