Kumar Sangakkara, Lasith Malinga, Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Ajantha Mendis and T.M. Dilshan have been nominated for the LG ICC Awards 2012, the ICC announced today.

Six players have been nominated in three different categories for the awards, Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal, South Africa’s Hashim Amla, Australia captain Michael Clarke, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, England’s Alastair Cook and West Indies Stafanie Taylor.

The six players all feature in the ICC Cricketer of the Year, the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy, long list, while the male nominees are all nominated in both the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year and ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year long lists, Taylor on the other hand features in the ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year and ICC Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year long lists.

It is the first year the men’s and women’s voting academy and awards have become fully integrated, and Taylor becomes the first female to be long-listed for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy at the ninth annual LG ICC Awards which will be held on 15 September in Colombo ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 Sri Lanka 2012.

This year’s LG ICC Awards includes 11 individual prizes and also features the selection of the Test and ODI Teams of the Year.

Cricket fans currently have the opportunity to vote for the cricketer of their choice online until 31 August at www.facebook.com/cricketicc.

The long-lists of nominations were made by a five-man ICC selection panel chaired by former West Indies captain and current chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee Clive Lloyd. The panel also includes former international players Clare Connor of England, Tom Moody of Australia, Carl Hooper of West Indies and Sri Lanka’s Marvan Atapattu.
