Highlight Story

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was nominated in two categories at the LG ICC Awards 2008, with India's ODI and T20 skipper in contention for the ODI Player of the Year as well as the T20 International Performance of the Year.

The latter, which is a new award constituted this year, is in recognition of outstanding individual performances in this format.

Though Sachin Tendulkar, up for the ODI Player of the Year award, Yuvraj Singh, up for the T20 International Performance of the Year, and Ishant Sharma, in line for the Emerging Player of the Year award, were the other Indians nominated, none of the Indians were in the shortlist for the Cricketer of the Year and the Test Player of the Year awards.
