Mustafizur named ICC Emerging Cricketer of the Year
Fast bowling sensation Mustafizur Rahman has been named the International Cricket Council's Emerging Player of the Year, becoming the first Bangladesh cricketer to win an annual award of world cricket's governing body. The left-arm fast bowler has registered impressive performances since his international debut in April, 2015. In the period under consideration (September 2015-16), he picked up eight ODI wickets and 19 Twenty20 international wickets. “This award is the best gift of the year for me and will encourage me to do even better in the coming years.

And it has been a dream come true for me. I want to thank everyone who supported me over the years. I promise to give my best whenever I get the opportunity,” he added.
