South Africa's left-arm fast-bowling all-rounder Marco Jansen beat strong contenders like India's Arshdeep Singh, Afghanistan's Ibrahim Zadran and New Zealand's Finn Allen to win the ICC Mens Emerging Cricketer of the Year award for 2022.

Jansen picked 36 wickets in eight Test matches during 2022 for South Africa. He had success on tours of England and Australia, averaging just 13.11 and 13.33 respectively. His nine Test wickets in New Zealand came at a respectable 28.55 to boot, as he contributed with the bat for Dean Elgar's side.
