Pakistan captain Babar Azam was awarded the title of Most Valuable Cricketer at the PCB Awards on Friday after his brilliant performance during the season.

The 26-year-old was also voted White-Ball Cricketer of the Year after averaging 110.5 and 55.2 in ODIs and T20Is respectively.

Babar scored 338 runs in four Tests played during the year at an average of 67.6.

Mohammed Rizwan, the captain of the stand-in for the final Test at Mount Maunganui against New Zealand, was declared Test Cricketer of the Year. In five Tests, he scored 302 runs, mostly under difficult conditions, with four fifties at an average of 43.14. He also accounted for 12 batsmen behind the wickets.

Fawad Alam made his maiden Test century in 11 years at 102 in Mount Maunganui, which was chosen as an individual performance by an independent jury that included eminent cricket personalities.

All-rounder Alia Riaz was named as the Women’s Cricketer of the Year, while 19-year-old Fatima Sana was named the Women’s Emerging Cricketer of the Year.

17-year-old Test fast bowler Naseem Shah won the Emerging International Cricketer of the Year after his 20 wickets in eight Tests, including a hat-trick against Bangladesh which made him the youngest bowler to achieve the rare feat.

The Domestic Cricketer of the Year honor went to Kamran Ghulam of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa when he became the only batsman in the ongoing First Class Quad-A-Azam Trophy to complete 1,000 runs.

He completed 19 innings of 10 rounds of matches at an average of 60 with 1,065 runs with four centuries and four half-centuries.

The winners will be presented with specially designed trophies during the upcoming home series against South Africa.
