Pakistan cricketers Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman have been nominated by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for its Player of the Month award for April, following their stunning performances on the ongoing tour of Africa, but especially against South Africa.
The ICC announced the nominations to recognise the spectacular performances from both male and female cricketers across all forms of international cricket on Wednesday.
Last month, Azam toppled Indian captain Virat Kohli to become the top-ranked ODI batsman in the world. Azam has 865 points while the Indian skipper has 857. The Pakistan skipper scored 228 runs in the ODI series.
