Narine wants Emerging Cricketer Award
Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies spin bowler Sunil Narine is looking forward to tonight. The 24-year-old believes he has done enough to win the International Cricket Council's Emerging Cricketer of the Year award, and wants to get his hands on the trophy.
Narine is on the shortlist, which also includes New Zealand fast bowler Doug Bracewell, Sri Lankan top-order batsman Dinesh Chandimal, and James Pattinson, the Australian pacer. To qualify for the award a player must be under the age of 26 at the start of the observation period and have played fewer than five Tests and/or 10 One-day Internationals and/or five T20Is at the start of the voting period.
"It would mean a lot to me to win this award…I will just hope and see what happens," Narine said.
"It's a privilege to be nominated. Now coming onto the scene and being up for an award is a good feeling. It's through hard work and dedication which has brought me to this point. I look forward to being nominated for a lot more awards."
