Dubai:

India's ODI captain MS Dhoni leads his country's charge in this year's shortlists for the LG ICC Awards 2008 as he is one of the four Indian players who have a chance of taking home a prize from cricket's night of nights.

Also nominated are Sachin Tendulkar (ODI Player of the Year), fast bowler Ishant Sharma (Emerging Player of the Year) and Yuvraj Singh (T20I Performance of the Year, to mark his six sixes against England in Durban last September).

Ishant faces tough competition in the Emerging Player category with Sri Lanka's mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis, England all-rounder Stuart Broad and South African fast bowler Morne Morkel, also vying for the trophy.

In the T20 International Performance of the Year, Dhoni and Yuvraj are up against Chris Gayle of the West Indies and Australia's Brett Lee.

This year's LG ICC Awards includes eight individual prizes also, including a new one for the Twenty20 International Performance of the Year.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Mahela Jayawardene and Dale Steyn may well be in for a fruitful time in Dubai.
