The ESPNcricinfo Awards recognise the best individual batting and bowling performances in cricket over the calendar year. They are voted on by an independent jury of former cricketers, commentators, and ESPNcricinfo's senior writers. Previous winners have included Dale Steyn, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson, Shahid Afridi and Kumar Sangakkara.Statsguru Awards
Which batsman was the most consistent over the year? Who was the best bowler in the third and fourth innings? ESPNcricinfo's ball-by-ball data analysis of every international game has answers to these queries and more. The Statsguru Awards go beyond runs scored, wickets taken, or averages, and are the result of detailed data analyses of performances.
