It’s that time of the year when Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announces the best players of the year in a glitzy award ceremony.
The awards galore was attended by the former cricketers, ICC representatives, current national cricketers as well as the World XI players. The buzz was great and the award ceremony was truly glamorous.
Different players were presented with the prestigious awards in different categories. And when Misbah-ul-Haq takes the stage, it does not get any better than that.
