I read a post about sharing the man of the match award between two players.

Is there any instance happened in cricket history that the player of the series award got shared?

If yes, please provide the reference.

In Test matches, this happened in the controversial series between England and Pakistan in which Mohammad Amir (Pakistan) and IJL Trott (England) were declared joint Man of the Series.

I think it might be ECB's rule to declare MOS of both teams as the case in my answer is also for England in England. – hims056 Jun 25 '14 at 6:51
@hims056, i'm not understand what you are saying? – Jahnny Jun 25 '14 at 14:51
Check any team's tour to England. You will find that they declare two man of the series in every series (at least for last 10 year). – hims056 Jun 30 '14 at 12:44

Adding to above list we have one more series with shared Man of the Series Award. In the recent series between India and England - Man of the series award was shared between James Anderson and B Kumar.
