Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag have been shortlisted for both Cricketer of the Year and Test Cricketer of the Year awards at the LG ICC annual Awards to be held on October 6 in Bengaluru.

South Africa's Hashim Amla is another player who also figures in both the categories of awards, along with the Indian cricketers, to be presented in association with the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA).

While Dale Steyn of South Africa has been short-listed as the fourth player in the category of Test cricketer of the Year award, England's Graeme Swann is nominated for the Cricketer of the Year award.

The final list was decided on the basis of the votes casted by the independent 25-member academy.

Tendulkar is also in contention for the ODI Player of the Year. However, Indian captain MS Dhoni fails to bag nomination in any of the awards category.

The Twenty20 International Performance of the Year list has New Zealand's Brendon McCullum, Australia's Michael Hussey, Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardena and South Africa's Ryan McLaren.

This year's ICC Awards also have nine individual prizes, including new LG People's Choice Award and also features selection of the Test and ODI Teams of the Year and an award to the side that has adhered most to the Spirit of Cricket.

Meanwhile, two of Australia's victorious World Twenty20 team members -- Shelley Nitschke and Ellyse Perry -- along with West Indies' Stafanie Taylor and England's Katherine Brunt have been shortlisted for Women's Cricketer of the Year award.

The Emerging Player of the Year nominees include Englishman Steven Finn, Angelo Mathews of Sri Lanka, Tim Paine of Australia and Pakistan's Umar Akmal.

The LG ICC Awards 2010 takes into account the performances of the players and officials during the period of August 24, 2009 to August 10, 2010.
