International Cricket Council (ICC) has named Australian skipper Michael Clarke, as the winner of Sir Garfield Sobers trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year. In addition to it, he also won the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year.

 

Other cricketers who have won awards include; Kumar Sangakkara as One-Day International (ODI) player of the year. India’s top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was named as Emerging Player of the Year.
