ICC Awards - selection and voting process

The ICC Awards selection panel is charged with two main tasks: providing a long-list of nominations to the 32 members of the voting academy to cast their votes in the individual player award categories and, using their experience, knowledge and appreciation of the game, select the ICC Test and ODI teams of the year.


During the 2016 ICC Annual Conference in Edinburgh, the ICC Board approved amendment to the voting process for the annual ICC Awards and also agreed to introduce the ICC Women’s Team of the Year.

For the men’s individual awards, it was decided that three members of the ICC Cricket Committee will prepare the short-list of nominations in each category and send to the ICC Awards Voting Academy, which will include two media representatives from each Test playing country.

The members will vote on a 3-2-1 basis with the player with the highest number to be declared as the winner.

The ICC Men’s Test and ODI teams of the year, however, will be selected by the three members of the ICC Cricket Committee.

For the women’s individual awards, the ICC Women’s Committee chair and two other members of the panel will prepare the short-list of nominations in each category and send to the ICC Awards Voting Academy, which will include key stakeholders in women’s cricket.

The ICC Awards Voting Academy for the women’s individual awards will then vote on a 3-2-1 basis with the player with the highest number to be declared as the winner.

The ICC Women’s Team of the Year will be selected by the three members of the ICC Women’s Committee.

The voting period for the 2015-16 season ran for 14 September 2015 to 20 September 2016.

ICC Awards

718 2005 Winners

The awards have honoured some of the biggest names in men's and women's international cricket. Each award is voted for by a specially selected panel, which this year consists of former players, respected members of the media and an elite umpire and match referee.

Previous ICC Awards ceremonies have been held in London (2004), Sydney (2005), Mumbai (2006), Johannesburg (2007 and 2009), Dubai (2008), Bangalore (2010), London (2011) and Colombo (2012). In 2013 and 2014 the ICC Awards changed format to a television show.
