Suryakumar Yadav dominated 2023 with 733 runs in 17 innings at an average of 48.86 and a strike rate of 155.95. He also scored the second-fastest hundred for India in men's T20s against Sri Lanka. The other three nominees are Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe, Alpesh Ramjani of Uganda and Mark Chapman of New Zealand.

Apart from Jaiswal, New Zealand's opener Rachin Ravindra, South Africa's pacer Gerald Coetzee, and Sri Lanka pacer Dilshan Madushanka are the contenders to win the award. Gerald Coetzee will aim to emulate last year's winner, fellow Protea Marco Jansen to claim the 2023 award. Coetzee had a wonderful World Cup 2023 campaign. Dilshan Madushanka picked up 21 wickets in the ICC CWC 2023 while Rachin Ravindra scored 578 runs which is enough to be a clear winner of this accolade.

In the women's section, Sri Lanka's Chamari Athapaththu is joined by England spin maestro Sophie Ecclestone, West Indies' all-round icon Hayley Matthews, and Ellyse Perry, a former two-time winner of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy for ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year (2019 and 2017).

The Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year nominees includes Bangladesh's Marufa Akter, England's Lauren Bell, Scotland's Darcey Carter and Australia's Phoebe Litchfield.
