Cricket West Indies (CWI) has congratulated the players named in the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Teams of the Year for 2022. Three West Indies players were announced by the ICC recently at the annual awards.
Captain Kraigg Brathwaite was picked in the Test Team of the Year, while wicketkeeper/batsman, Shai Hope and fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph earned spots in the One-day International (ODI) Team of the Year.
Brathwaite averaged 62 in seven Tests during the last calender year, scoring two one hundreds, a monumental 160 against England at Kensington Oval in March and an outstanding 110 against Australia at the Perth Stadium in December, on the eve of his birthday.
Hope maintained his consistency in the ODIs, averaging 35 with three centuries from 21 ODIs. He was among only seven players to pass the 700 runs for the year. The highlight was his knock oc 115 in his 100th appearance against India at the Queens Park Oval in July.
