Dubai [UAE], January 22 (ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) will start announcing the winners of the prestigious ICC Awards 2022 from Monday onwards, informed the sport's global governing body on Sunday.

"Following a busy voting period involving media representatives and cricket fans alike from around the world, the International Cricket Council (ICC) today unveils the schedule for announcing the winners of the coveted ICC Awards 2022, starting from Monday, January 23," the ICC said in a statement.

Through four days of staggered announcements across ICC digital channels, the ICC Awards 2022 promises to celebrate the standout performers in men's and women's international cricket during the last calendar year, and with voting now concluded, it is almost time for the winners to be revealed.

No fewer than 13 categories will honour the outstanding performers across the various formats of international cricket, which includes the iconic Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year and the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy for ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year.

Before the individual prize-winners are announced, the ICC will reveal five Teams of the Year, selected by the independent panel of media representatives that make up the ICC Voting Academy.

After shortlists were announced last month, the ICC Voting Academy, and hundreds of thousands of global cricket fans submitted their selections to identify the star performers from a bumper year of cricket which included blockbuster global events, including the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup, the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, and a host of other international contests.

Shortlists in nine of the 13 categories were determined on performances and overall achievements from January 1 to December 31 2022, and the winners are identified from the results of the ICC Voting Academy selections, combined with global fans voting outcomes.

Announcements:Announcements will start with the ICC Teams of the Year between January 23 and 24.

Monday, January 23 will see the ICC Men's and Women's T20I Teams of the Year unveiled, while the ICC Men's and Women's ODI Teams of the Year, and the ICC Men's Test Team of the Year will be announced the following day, on January 24.

Attention will then turn to the 13 individual award categories from Wednesday, January 25, when the ICC will confirm winners of the Associate, T20I and Emerging Cricketer of the Year categories.

The final day of announcements, Thursday, January 26, will see the ICC recognise the Umpire of the Year, followed by the recipients of the Men's and Women's ODI Cricketer of the Year Awards and the Men's Test Cricketer of the Year Award.

Later that day, the ICC will name the winner of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy for ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year, to be followed by the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year.

ICC Awards 2022 announcements will culminate with the announcement of the winner of the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award.
