  • England's hero Ben Stokes

The Tigers had a disappointing 2019 and it reflected in the International Cricket Council awards, as none of the Bangladesh players were in the list of awardees.

Stokes' incredible performances in the World Cup, not least in the Lord's final, and his unforgettable match-winning century in the Ashes Test at Headingley saw him land the prestigious Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy.

India seamer Deepak Chahar won the T20 International Performance of the Year, Australia's Marnus Labuschagne was named as Emerging Cricketer of the Year, while Scotland's Kyle Coetzer was declared the Associate Cricketer of the Year.

India captain Virat Kohli won spirit of the cricket award for his gesture during the World Cup match against Australia.

Australia's Pat Cummins was named the Test Player of the Year while India's Rohit Sharma won the ODI award for the Player of the Year.

Virat Kohli winning the ICC Spirit of Cricket award surprised not only the fans but the India skipper too.

"It is quite flattering to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year", Stokes was quoted in an ICC press release.

Kohli, Stokes and Australia's fast-bowler Mitchell Starc are the only three players to be in both the Team of the Year for both formats. We are very happy with the way we performed as a team in 2019.

"It is part of the camaraderie that sportsmen must have with each other", Kohli said.

Babar further said: "I am thankful to the ICC and its jury for recognising my achievements with the bat in 2019 and considering me worthy of a place in the side that includes some of my favourite cricketers who entertained the fans throughout the year with their outstanding performances". His tons were against England at Trent Bridge (115), New Zealand at Edgbaston (101 not out) during ICC World Cup and Sri Lanka at National Stadium (115). "I don't think a guy who is coming out of a situation like that needs to be taken advantage of", he recalled. You can sledge, can have have banter on the field, you say things to the opposition in wanting to beat them.

"This award is testament to my teammates and the support staff that have been there every step of the way". Fundamentally, without the support of these individuals, we would never achieved our objective of lifting a major trophy.

ICC Test Team of the Year: Mayank Agarwal, Tom Latham, Marnus Labuschagne, Virat Kohli (captain), Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, BJ Watling (wicketkeeper), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Neil Wagner, Nathan Lyon.
