Today, ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year Declared! The International Cricket Council (ICC) has revealed the top-performing One Day International (ODI) Cricketer and the Sir Garfield Sobers Cricket Player of the Year for 2023.

In the running for the ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year were Virat Kohli from India, Ravindra Jadeja, Australia’s Travis Head, and the Australian captain Pat Cummins, who secured the World Cup victory.

Having a great year in 2023, Pat Cummins took 59 wickets and scored 422 runs in 24 matches, playing a pivotal role in Australia’s success in both the Test Championship and the World Cup.

The nominees for the ICC Men’s ODI Player of the Year 2023 included India’s Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Shubman Gill, and New Zealand’s Daryl Mitchell.
