The 2022 LV= Insurance Pride of Cricket Awards shortlists have been revealed, with 42 entries reaching the voting stage of the competition.

Tales of compassion, creativity, kindness and dedication from across the game in England and Wales are highlighted on the shortlists, which cover six categories: the Pride of Cricket Award, Club Hero, Media Hero, Community Hero, Fundraising Hero and Young Hero.

Voting is now open via the links below, with the ballots set to close on Wednesday, October 5 at 5pm.

The public vote accounts for 50 per cent of the overall judging in each category, with the other half decided by a jury of cricket writers and representatives from LV= Insurance. 

Jonathan Mansley, LV= General Insurance Sales and Marketing Director, said: "LV= Insurance would like to congratulate all nominees for this year's awards. The grassroots community is truly at the heart of cricket and the nominees represent the very best of those who contribute so much to the game up and down the country.

"For the second year we have been involved we were once again delighted to see so many nominations and hear some absolutely fantastic stories."

The Cricketer's digital editor, Sam Morshead, said the strength and breadth of nominations had once again been hugely impressive.

"Every year, the LV= Insurance Pride of Cricket Awards throws up dozens of incredible stories about ordinary people doing amazing things, all in the name of their local club and the game of cricket - and 2022 has been no different," he said.

"I'd urge everyone to spend a little time reading the mini biographies of each of our shortlisted entrants to get a sense of just how much good is done in the sport across England and Wales each year."

The winners are expected to be announced  in mid-November.
