In 45 matches, Shubman Gill amassed 2118 international runs with an amazing average of 50.42, including 7 hundred, to become the 2023 cricket phenomenon. Also, he was ranked first among batters in the ICC ODIs. He became the men's ODI cricket player with the youngest career double-century. Being a member of the select group of players who have scored hundreds in every format and his steady performance in all of them make Gill a serious contender for this honour.

2. Daryl Mitchell (New Zealand)

Daryl Mitchell has demonstrated his abilities with the ball and bat. He has amassed 1919 runs at an average of 42.64 and six hundreds in 47 matches in 2023. In addition, he contributed significantly with the ball and claimed 24 wickets. In the ODI World Cup 2023, he made an outstanding performance for New Zealand, which puts him in the running for this honour.

3. Virat Kohli (India)

Virat Kohli excelled in international cricket in 2023. He scored 1934 runs in 34 matches at a 66.68 average, including 8 hundreds. Kohli's outstanding World Cup performance saw him break records held by superstars such as Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli is still a strong contender for ICC Cricketer of the Year, because of his exceptional run-scoring and leadership abilities. If Virat Kohli wins the ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year Award for the third time this year, he will become the only player in history to do so.

4. Travis Head (Australia)
