    ICC releases long list for annual awards

    Zaheer Khan, AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla, Shane Watson, Jonathan Trott and Graeme Swann have been nominated in each of the three top categories for the ICC's annual awards. The six players feature in the long-list of nominees for the Cricketer of the year, Test player of the year and ODI player of the year awards. In addition, there are 11 players who have been nominated in at least two categories.

    The long-lists were put together by a five-man selection panel chaired by former West Indies captain and current chairman of the ICC cricket committee, Clive Lloyd. The other members of the panel were Mike Gatting, Danny Morrison, Paul Adams and Zaheer Abbas. The players were selected based on their performances between August 11, 2010 and August 2, 2011, a period that includes the ICC World Cup.

    The winners of the individual player awards will be picked by "an academy of 25 cricket personalities" that includes a number of former players, representatives from the elite umpires panel, ICC match referees and members of the media.

    This year's awards include 10 individual prizes, including the people's choice award that will be decided by cricket fans online, and three team awards: the Test and ODI teams of the year and the award to the side that has adhered most to the spirit of cricket. The awards ceremony will be held in London on September 12

    ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said the awards are "a chance to look back on some of the great cricketing feats witnessed in the past year, including from our flagship event, the ICC Cricket World Cup".

    Simon Taufel should get the umpire award. The guy has been making so many good decisions.

    I'd like it if one of Wahab Riaz or Azhar Ali pick up the emerging player award.Don't see it happening though.

    Also,does someone mind explaining how Harbhajan is nominated for Test Player of the year?!

    Surely Prior should be knocking around the Test players list?

    Yeah I think Prior deserves a spot. No idea why they nominated Harbhajan there.

    Dhoni will win the peoples choice award whether he deserves it or not.

    Cricketer and test player of the year awards for Cook.

    Test team of the year will be basically the England team, Cook, Trott, Bell, KP, Prior, Anderson and Broad all easily in it i would imagine.

    I personally don't like having test cricketer, ODI cricketer and then a cricketer of the year categories. I would rather have four awards - best batsman and bowler for each of the 2 formats. Putting batsmen and bowlers under same award category doesn't feel quite right.

    And yeah, people's choice is big farce. An Indian cricketer is going to win it every single year. They seriously need to get rid of it, if they have learnt any lessons from ICC all time XI farce.
