The International Cricket Council (ICC) has not named any Pakistani cricketer in the Test Cricketer of the Year. Cricket fans on the social networking site Twitter expressed surprise at not nominating Shaheen Shah Afridi as the Test cricketer of the year, saying that the fast bowler has taken 47 wickets in ICC Test cricket this year but was replaced by News. Land’s Kyle Jamieson has been named Test Player of the Cricketer.
ICC biased nomination for Test Cricketer of the Year
Shaheen has taken 47 wickets in 9 Tests this year with a bowling average of 17.06 while Kiwi fast bowler Kyle Jamie Sun has taken just 27 wickets in 5 matches. India’s Ravi Chandran Ashwin, England captain Jorot, Kiwi all-rounder Kyle Jamieson and Sri Lanka’s Test captain Kronartne have been named in the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year list.
On the other hand, the ICC explained that Shaheen was not nominated for the Cricketer of the Year, saying that Kyle Jamie Sun played a key role in helping the Kiwis win the ICC Test Championship. It should be noted that cricket fans are very angry over the decision of the ICC and are expressing their displeasure over the decision.
