  • Jacques Kallis (South Africa) – for twice during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 walking after clarifying with the opposition fielder if they had caught the ball cleanly

ICC Spirit of Cricket Award 2011 – Mahendra Singh Dhoni

India’s Mahendra Singh Dhoni has won the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award 2011 at the LG ICC Awards in London.

The India captain showed the right spirit in agreeing to allow England batsman Ian Bell to continue batting when he was run out in controversial circumstances during the second Test at Trent Bridge in July 2011.

On what was the last ball before tea on the third day, Bell hit the ball towards the boundary. He mistakenly thought it had gone for four, left his crease and headed towards the pavilion assuming the session was over and the ball dead. Meanwhile the ball, which had not reached the rope and therefore was still in play, was returned to the middle, the bails removed and Bell was correctly given run out.

Upon reflection during the tea interval and following a request from the England team, Dhoni withdrew the appeal and recalled Bell thus turning boos into cheers from the appreciative Nottingham crowd.

ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said: “While the initial appeal and umpire decision were correct to the letter of the law, the decision by Mahendra and his team to withdraw the appeal shows great maturity. To see players and officials uphold the Great Spirit of cricket, which has underpinned the game for more than a century, is very special.”

Dhoni‘s gesture was voted as the winner ahead of that of South Africa’s Jacques Kallis, who twice demonstrated such spirit during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 by walking once he had clarified with opposition fielders directly that they had caught the ball cleanly rather than waiting for the umpires to decide.

ICC Twenty20 International Performance of the Year 2011 – Tim Southee

New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee has won the ICC Twenty20 International Performance of the Year in recognition of his five wickets for 18 runs against Pakistan in New Zealand.

Southee was unable to attend the awards but upon hearing the news he said: “I’m sorry I’m unable to attend the awards and it’s a great privilege to accept the ICC Twenty 20 Performance of the Year. Looking at the nominees it’s a great achievement to have even been nominated and to win it is something I will never forget.

“Looking back at the game which has won me the award, it was Boxing Day in a full house at Eden Park and it was a big game for us as we’d been going through a rough patch of losing, something like 12 or 13 games lost on the trot and it was our first win in a long time. It was great to be able to contribute to that win and also put in a great performance.”
