The Cricinfo Awards comprise two unique sets of awards - one subjective, voted on by a jury, the other based on numbers. We announced the nominees in December 2007. Now the votes have been counted and the numbers crunched and it's time for the winners.
The Jury Awards pay tribute to the best individual performances in the three international forms of the game during the calendar year 2007. The winners, picked by Cricinfo's expert panel - comprising some of the world's most discerning observers of the game - from a shortlist compiled by the site's staff, are now out. Use the links below to find out more.
The other part, the Statsguru Awards, is based on hard data. Cricinfo records data on 16 parameters for each ball bowled in international cricket. We can tell you who has been the most consistent batsman of the year, who has scored the greatest percentage of runs in boundaries, who has bowled the most dot-balls, and more. The awards in this category are also out, below.
We invited readers to vote on the Jury Awards shortlists. The results are here
Our panel of eight voted on shortlists in each of six categories - batting and bowling performances over the three formats, Tests, ODIs and Twenty20 cricket.
Going beyond the usual look at the most runs scored, wickets taken, or batting average, the Statsguru Awards are the result of detailed data analyses of performances in 2007.
Which batsman played more consistently than any other over the entire year? Which bowler performed at his best against top-order batsmen? Who relished tail-end wickets the most? Cricinfo's ball-by-ball data analysis of every international game has answers to these queries and more. The Statsguru Awards are based on these stats. The results originate from quantitative analyses of performance throughout the year, which makes these awards definitive and distinctive.
