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.

The man of the Series was given to Yuvraj Singh and Graeme Smith jointly in India vs South Africa ODI series held in india 2005/06.

Wiki Link.

Scorecard for the final match of that series.


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.


The man of the Series was given to JM Anderson (England) and AD Mathews (Sri Lanka) jointly in England Vs SriLanka Test series held in England 2014.

Scorecard for the final match of that 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.

    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).
