Azam had, earlier, been declared winner of the award by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The winners were selected following a global vote conducted among an independent panel of prominent media representatives – the ICC Voting Academy – whose votes were combined with those of cricket fans from around the world registered to icc-cricket.com, the PCB's website reported.

The Pakistani cricket icon had been nominated alongside England’s Ben Stokes, Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza, and New Zealand’s Tim Southee for the award due to his outstanding performance as player and captain in 2022.

 The ICC stated that 2022 was yet another year of Babar Azam making and breaking records as Babar was the only player to breach the 2000-run mark in the calendar year across formats, with his 2598 runs coming at an average of 54.12, which included eight hundreds and 17 fifties.
