Former West Indian captain Clive Lloyd will announce the short-lists for the LG ICC Awards 2011 in a media conference at the St Lawrence Ground, Cantbury, Kent. Clive Lloyd is the Chairman of the LG ICC Awards Selection Panel and is also the Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee.
Based on the period between 11 August 2010 and 3 August 2011, the LG ICC Awards 2011 – presented in association with the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA) – will take into account performances by players and officials in a remarkable period for the game.
That period includes such high-profile events as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the ICC Intercontinental Cup, numerous Pepsi ICC World Cricket Leagues and several bilateral Test and ODI series.
The ICC Test Team of the Year 2011 will also be announced in the same conference. The announcement will also include the naming of the ICC Test Team of the Year 2011.
The LG ICC Awards ceremony is now in its eighth year and this year it will be held in London on 12 September. Previous ceremonies were held in London (2004), Sydney (2005), Mumbai (2006), Johannesburg (2007 and 2009), Dubai (2008) and Bengaluru 2010.
The LG ICC awards held every year is aimed at recognising major individual and team achievements in world cricket.
The awards will feature 10 different categories, and the awardees will be voted by a strong panel of former players, members of the media, and an elite umpire and match referee.
