On this week's LG ICC Awards 2011 special ICC Cricket World Radio Show, England's Jonathan Trott talks exclusively about being short-listed in three categories
"It is not something you think about when you are playing. But what nomination brings with it some good and fond memories. I think the nominations shows plenty of England players in all categories. It shows how we have been a successful as a side over the past year and how everyone has contributed to it," says Trott.
Based on the period between 11 August 2010 and 3 August 2011, the LG ICC Awards 2011 - presented in association with FICA - take into account performances by players and officials in a remarkable period for the game.
The show can be used in whole or part by radio stations that want free cricket content for editorial use, while the public can also download it straight from www.icc-cricket.com or from iTunes.
Also on this week's show, fellow nominee West Indies' Darren Bravo talks about being short-listed for the ICC Emerging Player of the Year. The 22-year-old batsman is up against compatriot Devendra Bishoo and Pakistan duo of Azhar Ali and Wahab Riaz for the title.
"It is a great feeling to be nominated. I was a bit surprised. It has been my first full year in international cricket and I am being listed in that sort of category, so it is special to me. I am thanking the lord for this and hopefully I get the award," says Bravo.
"I think it will be very tough because all the others have performed pretty well. It is about their hard work as well and congratulation to them as well for being nominated. Someone like Devendra Bishoo has put in a tremendous amount of hard work since he has come in. So may the best man win," adds Bravo.
Finally, Zimbabwe's Test opener Tino Mawoyo looks back on his maiden hundred against Pakistan in the recently concluded one-off Test.
"I had previously batted for a day. But to bat for eleven hours is a quality that has slowly crept into my game. I have been working hard on it for two-three years. I have taken on the role to let people bat around me. Obviously Grant Flower (Zimbabwe batting coach) has worked a lot with me to improve that aspect of my game over the last four-five months," says Mawoyo.
This show has been put together by the ICC's global broadcast partner, ESPN STAR Sports.
