Two Pakistani players - pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi and all-rounder Shadab Khan, have been shortlisted for the T20 World Cup 2022 Player of the Tournament award.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has nominated nine exceptional performers for the award.

Shadab is the joint highest wicket-taker along with Shaheen for Pakistan with 10 wickets in hand in the mega tournament.

'Shadab Khan has been one of Pakistan's star performers in their run to the final of the tournament, starring with both bat and ball. He has been an impactful performer, picking up vital wickets in the middle overs while also playing the role of power-hitter in the middle order brilliantly,' the ICC stated in a press release.

'Shadab's major contribution with the bat came during Pakistan's must-win contest against South Africa in Sydney, as he scored a blistering half-century. With the ball, he has picked 10 wickets in six matches, with best figures of 3/22 and a miserly economy of 6.59,' it added.

The ICC also heaped praise on Shaheen, who made an impressive comeback in the tournament after recovering from a knee injury.
