September 09, 2004

Ace batsman Rahul Dravid hogged the limelight at the inaugural International Cricket Council awards in London on Tuesday, winning the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for being the best player in both forms of the game in the year ending July 31 2004. He was also named the Test player of the year.

The Indian vice-captain was chosen by a 50-strong panel of former cricketing greats, national captains, umpires and referees.

Indian left arm seamer Irfan Pathan also figured in the roll of honour, being named the best emerging player.

With 100 votes, the 19-year-old claimed the award ahead of Pakistan's Yasir Hameed (75 votes). Australia's Michael Clarke finished in third place with 45 votes, while another Pakistan youngster, Umar Gul, rounded out the top four on 21 votes.

Join us in congratulating Dravid and Pathan.
