ICC Awards 2012 Winners Announced

Ceremony of ICC Awards 2012 taken place today just before the starting of T20 World Cup. Winners in different categories are announced by ICC which are following:

- Kumara Sangakkara, Test Cricketer of the year.

- Virat Kohli, ODI Cricketer of the year.

- Sunile Narine, Emerging player of the year.

- Kumar Dharmasena, Umpire of the year.

- Richard Levi, T20 performance of the year.

- George Dockrell, Associate and Affiliate Cricketer of the year.

- Kumar Sangakkara, People's choice award.

- Daniel Vettori, Spirit of the Cricket award.

What is shocking for me is that Dharmasena is declared umpire of the year instead of Aleem Dar this year. ICC also seems to be biased towards Pakistan as Saeed Ajmal was also kept out of awards.

Indian Cricket board BCCI influence is increasing on ICC day by day and this is why we are seeing so much bias decisions towards Pakistan by the International Cricket Council. Saeed Ajmal who given so many amazing performances in 2012. Keeping his name out of nominations is a clear indication of this.

Similarly International Cricket council also seems very biased in the matter of Pakistani Umpire Aleem Dar who was declared Umpire of the year for last 3 years consecutively. even during last year Aleem Dar made very good decision on the field. but ICC given Umpire of the year award to   Kumar Dharmasena instead of Aleem Dar. i don't if Dar done best umpiring during last year or not? but one thing i know for sure is that he done better umpiring than  Kumar Dharmasena.
