Yousuf takes the Test Player of the Year award
Muhammad Yousuf, Pakistan’s most prolific Test batsman during the past two seasons (and a Lahori ;-)), has been named as the ICC Test Player of the Year. With that, he also became the very first Pakistani to have won an ICC Award ever since they started four years ago. This is indeed an honor for our country and we’re extremely proud of his achievements!
During the ODI-dominated voting period of August 9, 2006 to August 8 2007 Yousuf played six Tests. In that time he scored 944 runs at an average of 94.40 including five centuries and two fifties in just ten innings.
He had a remarkable home series against West Indies last November and December, scoring four centuries in the three-Test series and finishing with 665 runs at an average of 133. – Cricinfo
