Explaining the players who had been picked for the team of the year, ESPN CricInfo wrote:

Babar Azam, who was prolific in 50-over cricket in 2022, making three hundreds and five fifties in nine innings for Pakistan, leads our ODI XI and bats at No. 3 below openers Travis Head and Shubman Gill. India’s Shreyas Iyer, with over 700 runs at an average of 56, slots in at No. 4, followed by New Zealand keeper-batter Tom Latham and two offspinning allrounders, Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza and Bangladesh’s Mehidy Hasan Miraz. Both made unbeaten hundreds in home wins, Raza getting two in a series win over Bangladesh in Harare, and Miraz getting his while handing India a series defeat in Mirpur.

They will lend support to our canny bowling attack in which Adam Zampa brings the wristspin option, while Trent Boult offers left-arm variety to Alzarri Joseph and Mohammed Siraj‘s right-arm pace.

Sikandar Raza’s selection comes a few months after the all-rounder became the first-ever Zimbabwe cricketer to scoop the ICC Men’s Player of the Month award.

Raza walked away with the gong following a splendid performance in August, where he notched three ODI centuries against Bangladesh and India in Harare.

A few weeks later, the veteran all-rounder led Zimbabwe at the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament in Australia.

Sikandar Raza was also instrumental as Zimbabwe came close to an appearance in the semi-finals. This included a stunning one-run victory over eventual runners-up Pakistan.i Harare
