ICC Awards 2006: ODI Player of the Year - Initial list of Nominees

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's name is a glaring ommission from the list below. He scored 1170 runs at an average of 55.71 and also accounted for 40 dismissals as a keeper during this period. Those figures are much better than that of his Australian counterpart, who somehow managed to make it to the list.

With 58 wickets at just about 22 apiece, Irfan Pathan was the best bowler of the year (It is a pity that he is not the first-choice bowler in the current Indian lineup). Given the number of matches that Sri Lanka got to play, it isn't surprising to see Sangakkara head the batting aggregates column. My ODI player of the year would be Yuvraj Singh for just the sheer number of individual match-winning innings that he played this year.


Who would be your pick?

I agree with you. Yuvraj Singh is the strongest contender for the award. He is a very valuable player for the team, and last season he's had an outstanding run!
