Babar Azam: ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year 2022

Captain of Pakistan Babar Azam has been honoured as the ICC Men’s Cricketer of the year 2022 on Thursday, January 26, 2023. He has been claimed for this award for the second year consecutively. He has achieved the ‘Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy’ after the announcement that he is the Cricketer of the Year 2022 in ICC.


This year he broke his records and never fails to impress with his performance. He is one of the most consistent and incredible players from Pakistan. He has set many records including a huge score of 2598 runs with an average of 54.12.

In the whole calendar year, across all the formats of cricket, Babar Azam was the one and only player who achieved the 2000 runs mark. He is undoubtedly the most explosive and incredible cricketer who is at his peak in his career right now.

We recently evidenced by the fact that his total of eight hundred and seventeen fifties during the year was the best in his career so far. The ICC Men’s one-day international cricketer of the year in the year 2021-22, who accumulated 679 runs in just 9 games, dominated the fifty-over format.

The fact that he scored fifty or more runs in 8 innings speaks something about his consistency. Not only this has he shown a very good performance this year in the test matches. We are not surprised that he has been awarded as the ICC Men’s Cricketer for the year 2022.

He has a really fantastic career but we cannot ignore the fact that his team results were never as good as expected. He is a very great captain and handles his team and teammates very well.


When he captained his Pakistan team in one-day international formats he handled the team very well. He made his team win in all three one-day internationals but just dropped one match 9 which was against Australia.
