Hasan Ali named 'Emerging Player of the Year' in ICC Awards 2017

Virat Kohli

Three South Africans have been chosen in the Test squad - Dean Elgar, de Kock and Kagiso Rabada - as many Australians - Warner, Steve Smith and Starc - and Indians - Kohli, Ashwin and Cheteshwar Pujara - have also been chosen.

Virat Kohli was on Thursday named captain of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test and One-Day International (ODI) teams of the year that included four other Indians as well.

This is the second time when Kohli has been named the ICC Cricketer of the Year.

"It's called Test cricket for a reason, and I've enjoyed that test of my ability over the past 12 months", Smith said. Kohli was also named captain of the ICC Test and ODI teams of the year.

It is fitting that Kohli is awarded a trophy named in honour of the great West Indian all-rounder Sir Garfield Sobers.

"It's the first time winning the Garfield Sobers Trophy, and it's a huge honor for me", Kohli said in a statement.

"Two Indians winning it back-to-back makes it really special".

But Kohli's returns against the white and red ball were enough to win the men's one-day global player of the year and world cricketer of the year for 2017. A year ago it was Ash (Ravichandran Ashwin) and this time it's me. Donald Bradman leads the list with 961 points followed by current Australia captain Steven Smith (947), who has drawn comparisons with Bradman after peeling off 687 runs in the Ashes series. In terms of Test averages, Smith is placed just below Bradman. He also smashed 1,818 runs in 31 ODIs with seven centuries and nine half-centuries and 299 runs at a strike-rate of 152.55 in 10 T20Is during the voting period. The others in the 50-over team included South African former skipper AB de Villiers, Afghanistan's teenage leg- spinner Rashid Khan and two Pakistani cricketers in Hasan Ali and Babar Azam.

2016 for me was the breakthrough year and I could continue the same in 2017.

'I'm really honoured and I want to thank the ICC for recognising all the hard work we put in for our respective sides.

Hasan's 3 for 19 played a vital role in Pakistan's Champions Trophy to win the game in front of India.

According to ICC, his superlative performances have caught the attention of T20 teams around the world and he has made a splash at the Indian Premier League and Big Bash League in Australia.

India's Yuzvendra Chahal (six for 25 against England) narrowly edged out Evin Lewis of the Windies (125 not out against India) and Rohit Sharma (118 against Sri Lanka) to win the ICC T20I Performance of the Year.
