PostSubject: Anderson takes top award..(Cricket)   Tue May 15, 2012 8:13 pm

James Anderson has seen off competition from
Stuart Broad and Alastair Cook to be named England's cricketer of the
year for 2011-12.

The Lancashire seamer has enjoyed a stellar 12 months in
international cricket, rising to fifth on England's all-time list of
Test wicket-takers.

His 21 victims helped clinch a 4-0 series
sweep against India on home soil, while the 29-year-old was also
England's best bowler during the winter tours to the United Arab
Emirates and Sri Lanka.

Anderson was presented with the award at a special dinner held in the
Long Room at Lord's on Monday ahead of the first Test against West

"I am flattered to win this award and would like to thank everyone who voted for me," he said.

"I have been pleased with my performances over the last year and was
delighted with the way I bowled on the recent tour of Sri Lanka - but I
take even greater pleasure from being part of such a successful England

Broad had to make do with picking up the 'Fans' Moment of the Year'
award, voted for by members of ECB's Twelfth Man fan community, for his
hat-trick against India at Trent Bridge last summer.
