The International Cricket Council (ICC released the Men’s Emerging Cricketer of the Year award nominations) on Wednesday. Arshdeep Singh of India, Finn Allen of New Zealand, and Ibrahim Zadran of Afghanistan are the contenders for Men’s Emerging Cricketer of the year, along with South African fast Marco Jansen. In T20Is, the left-arm bowler has been one of India’s top wicket-takers.
Arshdeep Singh is the only Indian to be nominated for Men’s Emerging Cricketer
On Wednesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) made the same announcement and noted that voting for the award would start in January.
In July of this year, the 23-year-old cricketer made his debut against England and contributed two wickets to India’s 50-run triumph in Southampton. In Jasprit Bumrah’s absence, he has emerged as one of India’s best death bowlers of the modern era. And has been in charge of the assault during the final overs. He has 33 in 21 T20Is with an average of 18.12. He has achieved this early success because of his ability to take wickets. And the swing he generates with the new ball.
In the ICC Men’s Asia Cup, Arshdeep picked up five wickets in five games. But in the T20 World Cup, he improved and finished with ten wickets in six games.
The rest three contenders for the Title
Finn Allen, on the other hand, scored 411 runs in T20Is this season with a remarkable strike rate of 155.09. Along with filling in for the late New Zealand opener Martin Guptill, he has amassed 387 runs in 10 ODI innings. Additionally, this year against Scotland, he hit a 56-ball T20I century.
By taking 36 wickets and scoring 229 runs this year, Marco Jansen has distinguished himself with the red ball. In the ongoing Boxing Day Test, he has a fifty and a wicket.
In seven One-Day Internationals, Ibrahim Zadran has scored 431 runs at a 71.83 average. They also broke the greatest ODI score by an Afghan hitter during his 162-run inning against Sri Lanka.
