Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:
Many such messages in various names and forms, in the name of ESPN awards, promotion, draws, sweeptakes and lottery have been circulating through chain e-mails. The emails claim that the recipient's email address has won a huge amount of money and he needs to share his complete personal details to claim the award.

Therefore, these ESPN star cricket award emails are simply phishing emails and hoax messages, the only intention of which is to collect your personal and financial information for unfair use. ESPN has also mentioned the same about these emails on their official website, declaring them as false emails. One should avoid replying or contacting the senders of such phishing emails.
