Sports ESPN cricinfo awards 2020: Rahane, Maxwell, Muzarabani and Healy excel

Josh Hazlewood's 5 for 8 in Adelaide, and Ajinkya Rahane's, series-levelling century in the next Test in Melbourne, have taken the Test category honours in the 14th edition of the ESPN cricinfo Awards.

Rahane's innings beat competition from Jermaine Blackwood's comeback 95 in West Indies' memorable win in Southampton, and Ben Stokes' patient 176 - his highest Test score at home - at Old Trafford in the same series.

Hazlewood's haul came in India's 36 all out, their lowest Test total. His closest rivals for the award were Kyle Jamieson (5 for 45 vs India in Christchurch) and Shannon Gabriel (5 for 75 vs England in Southampton).
