Every year the ICC hands out it’s pick of awards, with the most prestigious prize normally reserved for the test player of the year. Contrary to most award ceremony’s, the ICC doesn’t host a glitzy event filled with players in tuxedos, totally unable to speak without first asking their PR teams if it’s okay, but this was no glam event, far from it. Simply a series of tweets dragged out over a seemingly endless time frame.
But as with all of these events ceremonies there is an element of debate over which player truly deserves their place or how it is disgraceful that another player was overlooked entirely. So, here at Middle and Off, we decided to go through award by award and judge how well the ICC have selected their winners.
