Dubai: Just two years after winning it, senior Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar was on Wednesday once again nominated for the ICC People's Choice award.
Those nominated include Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara, South Africa's duo Vernon Philander and Jacques Kallis, while England's James Anderson makes up the quintet of nominees.
Both Sangakkara (2011) and Tendulkar (2010) have won the award in the past.
For the third time in the history of the awards, fans will have the opportunity to decide the winner, this time by accessing an application on the ICC's official Facebook page: www.facebook.com/cricketicc.
Voting will be open until midnight August 31 with the winner to be announced on September 15 at the LG ICC Awards in Colombo, the ICC said in a statement.
