The ICC Awards of the Decade: two days to go for voting to close!

Awards of the Decade
The fan voting for the ICC Awards of the Decade is coming down to the wire in multiple categories with just two days to go for the voting to close.
  • Fans can continue to vote online on icc-cricket.com/awards and get a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to watch an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup match and much more

Nominees are running neck and neck in several key categories including the Men’s ODI Player of the Decade and Women’s T20 Player of the Decade. So far, more than 1.3M fans from across the globe have cast over 5 million total votes.

With the deadline for the voting to close fast approaching, fans can continue to cast their votes for a special edition of the ICC Awards of the Decade, celebrating and rewarding top performances of the decade in Cricket for both Men and Women.

Voting closes at 22:30 hours GST on Wednesday 16th December.

The ICC has partnered with Dream 11 and Facebook to promote the Awards with some truly innovative digital fan engagement. The Dream 11 ODI Team of the Decade feature enables fans to choose their best XI of the decade and share it with their friends; while on Facebook’s Instagram platform, people can test their trivia knowledge with some specially created filters.

The ICC Awards of The Decade that recognise the best players across Cricket over the past 10 years, has invited fans to vote by selecting the winners across categories including the Sir Garfield Sobers and Rachael Heyhoe Flint Awards, which celebrate the best overall player from the men’s and women’s game over the past decade. Fans will provide 100% of the vote for the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award of the Decade, from a list of the past winners since 2011.

Fans can register on our website icc-cricket.com/awards and vote for those shortlisted by an Awards Nominations Committee, based on performances during the period 1st January 2011 to 7th October 2020.

The top prize for voters is a once in a lifetime experience at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in India, including flights, accommodation, and pitch-side access to a Super 12s match. Other prizes include 45 pairs of match tickets, 15 OPPO Reno 4pro mobile phones and 50 $50 vouchers redeemable at the official T20 World Cup merchandise shop at the tournament.

The nominees for each of the categories have been determined by the Awards Nominations Committee according to on-field performances and overall achievements for at least five years during the period. Award winners will be announced in a special ICC Awards of the Decade show in the last week of December.
