There was a ruckus in Pakistan over Ashwin’s nomination, fans said – Surprised…

Pakistan Cricket Fans on ICC List: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has released the list of the best players for the year 2021. Four players have found place in the ICC list, including Team India’s star R Ashwin, England captain Joe Root, New Zealand’s fast bowler Kyle Jameson and Sri Lanka’s Dimuth Karunaratne. Now any one of these four will be chosen as the best player of the year. With this announcement of ICC, there has been a ruckus in Pakistan. The cricket fans there have started raising questions that why Shaheen Shah Afridi and Hasan Ali did not get a place in it.

On this list, Pakistani sports journalist Saj Sadiq has given his response through tweet. He wrote that 4 players were nominated for the ICC Test Player of the Year. Joe Root, R Ashwin, Kyle Jameson and Dimuth Karunaratne. I am surprised that after Ashwin this year, Shaheen Shah Afridi, who took the highest 47 wickets in Tests, is not named in this list.

Another sports journalist from Pakistan, Arslan Siddiqui, has also raised questions on the ICC’s nomination. He tweeted that Shaheen Shah Afridi bowled brilliantly in 2021. Took 47 wickets in 9 Tests. He is also the second highest wicket-taker this year after Ashwin. Still, he was not considered worthy of nomination. This thing is really surprising. Hassan Ali’s name is not even in this list. He took 41 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 16.07. His average is even better than Ashwin (16.67) and Shaheen Afridi (17.06).

According to the ICC, R Ashwin has taken 52 wickets in 8 matches this year. Apart from this, he has also scored 337 runs at an average of more than 28. It includes a century.

How was the performance of other players?

England captain Joe Root is the highest run-scorer in Test cricket this year. He has so far scored 1708 runs in 15 test matches with 6 centuries. He is the third player to score more than 1700 runs in a calendar year. Mohammad Yusuf is at number one and Vivian Richards is at number two.

– The performance of New Zealand player Kyle Jamieson has also been very good in Test cricket this year. He has taken 27 wickets in five matches. While the contribution of 105 runs has also been contributed.

The year 2021 has also been very good for Sri Lankan player Dimuth Karunaratne. So far, 902 runs have been scored from Karunaratne’s bat in seven matches. During this, he has also scored four centuries.
