Virat Kohli named ICC Male Cricketer of the Decade

Virat Kohli named ICC Male Cricketer of the Decade

Reacting to ICC's decision, Akhtar grilled the worldwide cricket body for overlooking the world's top cricketers like Australian fast bowlers Jeff Thompson, Danis Lillee, West Indies big five, and Pakistan's Waqar Younis, and Wasim Akram.

The ICC Awards of the Decade is a one-off edition of the annual awards programme, aimed at celebrating the stand-out performers and moments from the past ten years of worldwide cricket. She also went on to win the ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Decade as well as the ICC Women's T20I Cricketer of the Decade. He is also the fastest bowler to reach 50 wickets in T20I cricket in terms of time, taking just two years 20 days to reach the landmark. "They did not even include a single Pakistani player". "We don't need your (ICC) T20I Team of the Decade because you announced the IPL team, not a world cricket team", Akhtar said on his official YouTube channel. Where are the world's fastest bowlers and leg-spinners?

And the middle-order is the most fearsome of them all. When India lifted the 2011 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup - with Kohli playing a vital, underrated role in the final - his words after the game spoke of someone mature beyond their years. "What is the fun in watching cricket if Sachin versus Shoaib is not happening in the field?" he asked. There is no big player than Babar Azam in T20I. "It is so embarrassing and I'm sure after this video they will think that they have to announce the World Team of the Decade, not the IPL team", Sohaib concluded.

Former Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar lashed out at International Cricket Council (ICC) for not including any player from Pakistan in its Teams of the Decade (TOTD) announced on Sunday. He was also named the ICC Player of the Year in 2015 and ICC Test Player of the Year in 2015 and 2017.

In the team, four players are from India, two are from Australia, two from West Indies, one from Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Afghanistan.

Former India captain Dhoni was chosen for the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award of the Decade by fans unanimously for his gesture of calling back England batsman Ian Bell after a weird run out in the Nottingham Test in 2011.
