According to an ICC release, fans can vote online on icc-cricket.com/awards and get a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to watch an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup match and much more.

The statement further said that the 'ICC Awards of The Decade' will recognise the best players across cricket over the past 10 years, and for the first time the fans' voice will be heard in selecting the winners across categories.

The categories include the Sir Garfield Sobers and Rachael Heyhoe Flint Awards, which celebrate the best overall player from the men's and women's game over the past decade.

The fan vote will make up 10% of the voting, while votes from an expert panel will make up the remaining 90%.

Fans will provide 100% of the vote for the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award of the Decade, from a list of the past winners since 2011.

The voting opens at 13:00 hours GST on November 25 and closes at 22:30 hours GST on December 16. Fans can register on our website and vote for those shortlisted by an Awards Nominations Committee, based on performances during the period January 1, 2011 to October 7, 2020.

The top prize for voters is a once in a lifetime experience at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 in India, including flights, accommodation, and pitch-side access to a Super 12s match.

Other prizes include 45 pairs of match tickets, 15 Oppo Reno 4pro mobile phones and 50 $50 vouchers redeemable at the official T20 World Cup merchandise shop at the tournament.

The nominees for each of the categories have been determined by the Awards Nominations Committee according to on-field performances and overall achievements for at least five years during the period.

Award winners will be announced next month and will culminate in a special ICC Awards of the Decade digital show, to be broadcast on the ICC digital channels and will take into account the fans’ votes as well as those by a global panel of journalists and broadcasters.
