Today match prediction for the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year – 2021
In this article, you will see us discussing the prospects of batsmen who will take home the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year award in 2021.
We are directly discussing 2021 and not 2020. It is because the year has not seen much of action on the Cricket ground owing to the COVID-19 Pandemic outbreak.
Most of the countries across the world are under strict lockdown, including India. The Novel Coronavirus has halted economic and other activities everywhere. Thus, predicting who will win the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year 2020 is of no significance!
Cricket saw its last action in March when Australia and New Zealand played in the 1st ODI of the 3-match ODI Series. Players experienced eerie feeling as the Sydney ODI was played behind closed doors. Australia went on to win the 1st game. But the rest of the rubber had to be canceled due to the fast-spreading of COVID-19.

Dream11 prediction for today’s match of Best ICC Test Player
Virat Kohli, the Indian Captain, is the modern-day run machine. He is arguably the best batsmen in the world currently. He has proven his worth with consistent performances across all formats of the game, and that’s what makes him so unique.

The 31-year-old batting prodigy has amassed 7240 runs at an incredible average of 53.62 in 145 innings played so far.
2019 was also a good year for the right-hand batsman as he clicked with the bat and hit 612 runs in 8 Test games at an average of 68.
Steve Smith has been one of the greats of the game, and his numbers speak for his consistency. He has the record for having the highest Test average.
He had to serve a one-year ban owing to the infamous ball-tampering episode. But he redeemed his position in the International Cricket in 2019 Ashes. In 4 games, he amassed 700+ runs.
Talking about his Test career, he has played in 131 innings and made 7227 runs at a handsome average of 62.84. He has an unusual and unorthodox batting style, and that separates him from his contemporaries.
Smith was only the part of the Ashes in the last year and scored 774 runs in 4 matches which had 3 well-made tons. The Former Australian Captain walked away with the ‘Man of the Series’ for his sizzling performance. Smith announced his comeback into competitive Cricket and how!
