Pakistani batsman Mohammad Yousuf has been given the ‘Test Player of the year’ award. Yousuf’s award comes after a prolific last season in which he piled up centuries after centuries which helped him beat Vivian Richard’s record of scoring most runs in a calendar year. Mohammad Yousuf however has put his international career at a large risk by joining the unrecognized Indian Cricket League.
Yousuf after receiving the award told that this is the first time for a Pakistan player to win this award and that he is particularly delighted with that. He thanked God and his Pakistan team-mates and also thanked the ICC panel for voting him. Yousuf’s race was with Kevin Pietersen and Ricky Ponting. But it was so difficult to ignore Yousuf for this award as he had accumulated 944 runs in six tests from August 2006 to August 2007.
