    ICC announces 'ICC Player of the Month'

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced the introduction of the ICC Player of the Month awards which will recognise and celebrate the best performances of both male and female cricketers across all forms of international cricket throughout the year.

    Fans are invited to vote online every month to award their favourite male and female cricketers across all formats of international cricket played in that month

    An independent ICC Voting Academy comprising former players, broadcasters, and journalists from around the world, will team up with fans to vote for the ICC Men’s Player of the Month and ICC Women’s Player of the Month.

    Fans have been treated to some sensational cricketing performances during the month of January making the inaugural player of the month awards a highly competitive affair. From performances from youngsters such as Mohammed Siraj (IN), Washington Sundar (IN), T. Natarajan (IN), Rishabh Pant (IN), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (AFG) to established players such as Ravichandran Ashwin (IN), Joe Root (ENG), Steve Smith (AUS), Marizanne Kapp (SA), Nadine de Klerk (SA), Nida Dar (PAK), there will be no shortage of candidates for the month of January.

    Geoff Allardice, ICC General Manager – Cricket said: “The ICC Player of the Month is a great way to connect with fans of the sport and celebrate performances of their favourite players through the year. It gives us all an opportunity to acknowledge world class performances on the field by male and female cricketers and they have been in abundance throughout January.”

    The nomination and voting process:

    The three nominees for each of the categories will be determined by the ICC Awards Nominations Committee based on on-field performances and overall achievements during the period of that month (the first to the last day of each calendar month.)

    This shortlist is then voted for by the independent ICC Voting Academy and fans around the world. The ICC Voting Academy comprising prominent members of the cricket family including senior journalists, former players, and broadcasters.

    The Voting Academy will submit their votes by email and will retain a 90% share of the vote. Subsequently, on the 1st day of each month, fans registered with the ICC will be able to submit votes via the ICC website and will have a 10% share of the vote. Winners will be announced every second Monday of the month on the ICC’s digital channels.

    fans only contribute %10 of the voting, I think the ICC will share it around similar to the funds distribution model.

    Its being promoted as based on fan votes but that only makes up for 10% of the voting, selected voters have 90% of the decision.

    “Only” 10% is a lot. Usually you’ll have marginal calls between players by the selected voters.

    35% Pant
    40% Root
    25% Ashwin

    Can easily become

    40% Pant
    30% Root
    30% Ashwin

    The only time I can see a Pakistani winning is if the big three are not playing in the same month. Otherwise it will always be dominated by those three..these awards that the ICC create discriminate against Pakistan and have always done so. We have our own awards so thats all i care about.

    the ICC make up is generally full of Indians. So I suspect a typical young Indian whippersnapper trying to promote their cricket further as is their want. The kind of thing I expect from them tbh.

    It could be a decent idea. In months where the bigger teams aren't playing but say there is a zimb v afg series it can give a welcome boost to a player from a lower ranked team.

    I really don’t see how Pant won’t win this if you’re allowing the general public to be the tie-breaker. I would be surprised if any less than 10/12 months are won by Indians.

    Personally speaking, though Pant played excellently, I feel Root deserves it more.

    It can be like NBA's player of the month. It might not mean much but it will give lesser known players motivation to perform.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced the winners of the inaugural ICC Player of the Month Awards which recognize and celebrate the best performances from both male and female cricketers across all forms of international cricket throughout the year.

    India’s Rishabh Pant won the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for January 2021 for his performances in the two Tests against Australia where he scored a 97 at Sydney and an unbeaten 89 at Brisbane that led India to a historic series win against arch-rivals Australia. South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail was named the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for January 2021 for her performances across three ODIs and two T20Is during the month. Ismail took seven wickets in the victorious ODI series against Pakistan, before taking five wickets in the second T20I against the same opposition.

    Fans were treated to some sensational cricket during the month of January making the inaugural player of the month awards a highly competitive affair.

    Commenting on Pant being awarded the inaugural ICC Men’s Player of the Month Award, Ramiz Raja representing the ICC Voting Academy said: “Both times Pant played under pressure in two different sets of challenges: to draw a game and to win a game. He showed his versatility of skills in both knocks, the clincher being his temperament.”

    Commenting on Ismail’s inaugural ICC Women’s Player of the Month Award, Mpumelelo Mbangwa representing the ICC Voting Academy said: “Ismail reached a hundred T20I wickets in their series against Pakistan. She leads the way and is the first South African to reach the milestone. With her pace and aggression, she continues to lead the South African women’s team’s bowling attack admirably. She is a joy to watch in action.”

    Reacting to her award win, Shabnim Ismail said: “Winning the ICC Women’s Player of the Month in January just shows that all the hard work I put in during the lockdown has paid off for me. This accolade would not have been possible if it were not for my teammates and I am grateful and thankful for all your support. Also, to all my fans and friends all around the world thank you very much for the vote, it really meant a lot to me. And lastly, a special thanks to also my family who have been there for me and supported me all through the way.”

    Commenting on his award win Rishabh Pant said: “I am delighted to be receiving the inaugural ICC Men’s Player of the Month Award. For any sportsperson, contributing to a team win is the ultimate reward but such initiatives help motivate youngsters such as myself to do better each time. I dedicate this award to every member of Team India that contributed to our victory in Australia and also thank all my fans who voted for me.”
