Barring Dhoni and Kohli, none of the Indian cricketers feature in the shortlists for other awards.

South Africa duo Hashim Amla and Vernon Philander, Australia captain Michael Clarke and Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara have all been short-listed for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year, a media release from ICC said.

This year's awards ceremony will be held in Colombo on September 15, 2012, three days before the start of ICC World Twenty20 2012.

This year's LG ICC Awards includes 11 individual prizes, including the LG People's Choice Award and features the new ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Year and ICC Women's T20I Cricketer of the Year awards.

Based on the period between August 4, 2011 and August 6, 2012, the LG ICC Awards 2012 take into account performances by players and officials in a remarkable period for the game.

That period includes such high-profile events including the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2012 held in the UAE, the ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier in Bangladesh in 2011, various rounds of the ICC Intercontinental Cup, as well as numerous Pepsi ICC World Cricket League and Championship fixtures, plus several bilateral Test and ODI series.

The LG ICC Awards ceremony is now in its ninth year and this year it will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Previous ceremonies were held in London (2004 and 2011), Sydney (2005), Mumbai (2006), Johannesburg (2007 and 2009), Dubai (2008) and Bengaluru (2010).
