    [PICTURES] PCB Awards 2018 - Mohammad Abbas (Test), Hasan Ali (ODI) and Babar Azam (T20I) POTY

    Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is all set to host its annual cricket awards in Karachi on August 8.

    Left-handed opening batsman Fakhar Zaman has emerged as favourite in categories of Best Batsman and Cricketer of the Year while pacer Hassan Ali is likely to win award for Best Bowler of the Year.

    On the other hand, there is a stiff competition for the award of All-Rounder of the Year as Shadab Khan and Fahim Ashraf have performed exceptionally well over the course of last 12 months.

    Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq’s nephew Imamul Haq is a strong candidate for Emerging Cricketer of the Year award.

    Separate awards will be awarded on aforementioned categories in ODIs, T20Is and Test matches.

    So in addition to being the first name on the selection sheet and in the batting line up I see Imam also knows how to make his way into the front of a group Selfie as well.

    Kamran Akmal and Aizaz Cheema still the top performers in domestic? What a shame.

    Either our emerging players on the domestic scene are terrible, or the veterans are just getting better and better.

    More than anything I'm very happy that our fashion sense has improved as a team. Fakhar looks a bit paindoo wearing jeans with all that, but everyone else is good. Afridi has left a positive legacy after all

    Hasan Ali's man bun looks good, really suits him. Those who disapprove of it probably have no fashion sense whatsoever.

    Faheem and Shadab looking very sharp from the team as well.

    Fakhar is my fav from the side but was easily the worst dressed out of the players.

    PCB needs to include Pakistan player of the year, so the fans the best player of the side can get that recognition he deserves.

    Apparently the highest award is "Special Award for Outstanding Performance" which i also think should be replaced by Player of the Year.

    Think the awards are based on June 17 to June 18 performances.

    And we all know what happened in the June of 2017.

    I feel happy for Abbas,Hassan and Rana.Although I feel that best performers of T20,ODI and Tests shouldn’t all have the same cash award.

    What is also good to see is that the women and men cricketers both received the same prize money.

    Malik is in Carribean,Azhar is in UK.

    No real reason to invite Misbah and Younus.

    I have no idea why Afridi is there(probably his foundation) or Hafeez is not.

    Misbah and Younus deserve invitation more than Moin Khan, Sikandar Bakht and a few other random individuals on the stage during the ceremony

    Remember Sethi ironically saying "yeh gooray sifarish nahi suntay" or something along the lines re Mickey Arthur and the "White" coaching staff during his speech. Surprised no one made a hungama of it.

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s rising batting star Fakhar Zaman has emphatically declared that Saeed Anwar’s epic knock against India was a far better achievement than his own record-breaking double century during last month’s ODI series in Zimbabwe.

    The affable Fakhar stole the limelight at the PCB’s Annual Cricket Awards ceremony, which was held in collaboration with Titans Autographs and Memorabilia, by paying glowing tribute to Saeed who scored a memorable 194 — a world record that stood for six years — from only 146 balls at Chennai in May 1997 during the Independence Cup clash which Pakistan won by 35 runs.

    “There is no doubt in my mind that nobody can ever come close to matching that stupendous innings from Saeed bhai. It was a phenomenal achievement considering it came against India in sweltering conditions,” Fakhar said after receiving Rs2.5 million special award for the most outstanding performance during the ceremony held at a five-star hotel on Wednesday night.

    “Records are there to be broken and centuries are scored every now and then but in my view there is no comparison between my innings [of 210 not out] in Bulawayo and the one played by Saeed bhai who I rate as one of the greatest one-day batsmen.”

    Sarfraz earns Imtiaz Ahmed Spirit of Cricket honour at PCB awards

    Saeed Anwar, a left-hander like Fakhar, scored 8,824 runs (averaging 45.52) and hit 20 centuries in 247 ODIs in a glittering 14-year career before retiring after the 2003 World Cup in South Africa. He also made 4,052 runs in 55 Tests with 11 hundreds after bagging a pair on debut against the West Indies at Faisalabad in November 1990.

    Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who didn’t miss a single international fixture during the past year, bagged the coveted Imtiaz Ahmed ‘Spirit of Cricket’ award.

    In a brief speech after receiving Rs1 million cash prize, Sarfraz held high hopes for Pakistan in a very busy season in the lead-up to next year’s ICC World Cup in England while lauding the contributions of his charges in ensuring Pakistan retain the top ranking in T20 Internationals.

    Seamer Mohammad Abbas, who is currently away in England playing for Leicestershire in the County Championship, won the Test Player-of-the-Year prize for picking up 27 wickets in five matches, while Hasan Ali’s 33 victims fetched him the ODI Player-of-the-Year prize.

    Babar Azam clinched the T20 Player-of-the-Year award for his tally of 489 runs in the shortest format. Pace-bowling all-rounder Faheem Ashraf won the Emerging Player prize.

    In the women’s category, Gilgit-born Diana Baig earned the emerging player award with her Pakistan team-mates Sana Mir and Javeria Wadood Khan taking the ODI and T20 prizes, respectively.

    While most of the awards were given on performance-based criteria, glaringly there were several dubious recipients on the night, while exposing the Pakistan Cricket Board’s credibility.

    At least two of the award winners were far from merit. Asif Yaqoob, who only made his debut at the first-class level just a couple of seasons ago and already assigned to supervise more matches of the PSL 3 than Khalid Mahmood — widely rated among the best umpires in the country and one who has been officiating in top domestic competitions for 24 seasons now — was given the ‘Best Umpire’ award at the behest of Shakil Sheikh, the influential president of the Islamabad Cricket Association and a close aide of PCB chairman Najam Sethi.

    The other choice was Azhar Hussain, who was awarded the best Scorer-of-the-Year despite being an average scorer while the credentials of several outstanding scorers, such as Arif Majeed Arif and Syed Imran Ali, were overlooked.

    Other award winners were Mohammad Anees (best referee), Riaz Ahmed (best curator), Shan Masood (best batsman, domestic), Aizaz Cheema (best bowler, domestic), Kamran Akmal (best wicket-keeper, domestic), (Javeria Wadood Khan (best woman batter, domestic), Diana Baig (best woman bowler, domestic) and Sidra Nawaz (best woman wicket-keeper, domestic).

    Special awards were also presented to Pakistan’s physical disability team skipper Nihar Alam, deaf and dumb cricketer Mohammad Naveed Qamar and blind player Amir Ishfaq.

    Meanwhile, auction of several cricketing memorabilia was conducted on the sidelines of the awards’ ceremony which drew scant response from the overcrowded audience, judging by the prices the items on offer were bought for.

    The proceedings of the auctioned memorabilia were donated to Shahid Afridi Foundation, the Edhi Foundation and Project-91.
