Two Pakistani players — pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi and all-rounder Shadab Khan, have been shortlisted for the T20 World Cup 2022 Player of the Tournament award. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has nominated nine exceptional performers for the award. Shadab is the joint highest wicket-taker along with Shaheen for Pakistan with 10 wickets in hand in the mega tournament.
The ICC also heaped praise on Shaheen, who made an impressive comeback in the tournament after recovering from a knee injury.
India’s Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli, England’s Sam Curran, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza and Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga have also been nominated for the prestigious award.
