Bumrah, Mandhana are 'ICC's players of the month for June'

Jasprit Bumrah, and Smriti Mandhana.


Double celebration for India, Jasprit Bumrah, the star pacer who played a crucial role in India's triumphant T20 World Cup campaign, has been named the 'ICC Men's Player of the Month for June', while Smriti Mandhana, the vice-captain of the women's team, was also honored as the 'Women's Player of the Month' by the International Cricket Council (ICC)'. This prestigious recognition adds another feather to their caps, acknowledging their outstanding performances on the field.

 

Mandhana's exceptional performance in the ODI series against South Africa last month earned her this accolade, marking her first ICC Women's Player of the Month award.

 

Mandhana's stellar performance helped India achieve a resounding series victory over South Africa, showcasing her skill and dedication to the sport. Both Bumrah and Mandhana have made the country proud, and their recognition by the ICC is a testament to their hard work and excellence in cricket.

 

Bumrah came out on top in the men’s vote from compatriot Rohit Sharma and Rahmanullah Gurbaz of Afghanistan, while Mandhana won the women’s award by overcoming England’s Maia Bouchier and Sri Lanka’s Vishmi Gunaratne.

 

Bumrah, who bagged 15 wickets to be adjudged the Player-of-the-Tournament in the T20 global showpiece last month, also claimed the Men’s Player of the Month accolade for June, the ICC announced.

 

"I am delighted to be named the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for June," Bumrah said in the ICC statement.

 

"It’s a special honour for me following a memorable few weeks spent in the USA and West Indies. We have had a lot to celebrate as a team, and I’m delighted to be able to add this personal accolade to the list."

 

The 30-year-old was at his dependable best in the USA and Caribbean and bowled at an average of 8.26, at an astonishing economy rate of 4.17.

 

He joined Virat Kohli (a two-time winner in his own right) as India players to claim the Men’s T20 World Cup Player of the Tournament award.

 

India were the first team to win the men's T20 World Cup without losing a game all tournament.

 

Barring a washout against Canada in the first round, the Rohit Sharma-led India went on to win all eight matches they played in the tournament.

 

"To perform as well as we did at the tournament and lift the trophy at the end is incredibly special, and I will carry those memories with me forever," Bumrah said.

 

"I wish to congratulate my captain Rohit Sharma and Rahmanullah Gurbaz for their excellent performances in the same period, and I am humbled to have been chosen as the winner."

 

In the women's game, Mandhana set the tone with a commanding 117 in the first outing in Bengaluru. Despite an early stutter by the hosts in which they fell to 99 for five, Mandhana remained resolute, and benefitted from some lower order resistance to guide India to a formidable score of 265 from their 50 overs, which proved far beyond the Proteas.

 

Mandhana went one better in the second match, hitting her second successive century and top scoring in a game that saw 646 runs in total. The opener blitzed the South African bowling attack, smashing 136 in 120 balls and in tandem with her captain Harmanpreet Kaur, posted just enough to see off the resurgent visitors.

 

She came close to sealing a hat-trick of hundreds in the final outing, falling agonizingly on 90 in a stylish effort that ensured India recorded a comfortable victory to close out the series.

 

During the period, Mandhana recorded 343 runs at an average of 114.33, with a strike rate of over 100, earning her the Player of the Series award.

 

“I’m really glad to have won the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for June. I’m really happy with the way the team has performed and I’m happy to have contributed.

 

For us, we won the ODI and the Test series and hopefully we can continue our form and I can further contribute to win more matches for India,” Mandhana said.
