Story by Lawrence Trusida, Sports Desk Editor

Chevrons all-rounder Sikandar Raza has been named in the International Cricket Council (ICC) 2022 T20I Team of the Year.

Raza had a stellar year with the bat and also contributed significantly with the ball in T20Is.

He was at the centre of all things good for Zimbabwe during the year, with the all-rounder putting in one brilliant performance after another in the shortest format.

Not only was he the leading scorer for Zimbabwe with 735 runs but he also led the wickets chart with 25 scalps.

He was the Player of the Tournament at T20 World Cup Qualifier B in July and carried his form into the World Cup proper, winning the Player of the Match thrice, including in Zimbabwe’s epic win over Pakistan in Perth.
