Amla, England’s James Anderson and Alastair Cook, Australia's Michael Clarke, India's MS Dhoni and Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara have all been short-listed for the top honours at this year’s ICC Awards.
The six have been short-listed for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the ICC Cricketer of the Year, with the awards to be announced in a TV show that will be broadcast on December 14.
