ICC Player of the Month for June: The ICC on Monday revealed the nominees for the Player of the Month award for the month of June. Daryl Mitchell, Jonny Bairstow & Joe Root are among the nominees in Men’s Cricket while South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail, Marizanne Kapp & Nat Sciver are among the nominees in women’s cricket.
England kickstarted Brendon McCullum & Ben Stokes era in Test format on a high note by registering a 3-0 series whitewash against New Zealand & series star performers Jonny Bairstow & Joe Root are shortlisted for the prestigious award on the basis of their contribution in run chases. The icing on the cake is that New Zealand’s star batter, Daryl Mitchell too was nominated for the Player of the Month Award on the back of his spell-bounding performances throughout the series.
In the Women’s Category, South Africa’s star players with both bat & ball have been nominated for the ICC Women’s Player of the Month award. South Africa’s star bowler who spearheaded Proteas’s bowling attack in the ODI series against Ireland has featured in the nominees’ list.
On the other hand, Marizanne Kapp makes it to the list on the back of her fierce resistance at the crease in the Test fixture against England. Her curated knock of 150 runs set a national record for the highest Test score by a South African female & allowed her to post a decent 284 runs total in reply to England’s big first-innings total. England’s Nat Sciver too got nominated for the Player of the Month Award after posting an unbeaten 169 runs in the same clash guiding her team to an imposing 417 runs total.
On the basis of the votes of an independent ICC Voting Academy & fans around the world, the winners of the Player of the Month award will be decided. Fans who are registered on the I..cricket.com/awards can vote till Saturday & the winners of the award will be announced next week.
