Bumrah and Mandhana Clinch Historic Double for India in ICC Player of the Month Awards

The ICC crowned Jasprit Bumrah and Smriti Mandhana as the Player of the Month winners for June 2024, marking a historic first in the award’s history. The Indian duo’s red-hot form propelled them to the top after a global fan vote and the evaluation of a specialist panel.

Bumrah spearheaded India’s charge to T20 World Cup glory in June. He weaved a web of control and accuracy throughout the tournament, suffocating opposing teams with his consistent bowling. In high-pressure clashes, Bumrah snatched crucial wickets, most notably against arch-rivals Pakistan where he emerged as Player of the Match with the scalps of Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed.

His phenomenal bowling throughout the competition earned him a well-deserved Player of the Tournament title, with a staggering 15 wickets at an exceptional average and economy rate. Bumrah expressed his elation at winning the Player of the Month award, acknowledging the team’s success and thanking his loyal supporters.

Meanwhile, Smriti Mandhana, the Indian women’s vice-captain, mirrored Bumrah’s brilliance with the bat. She powered India to a clean sweep in their ODI series against South Africa with her phenomenal batting display.

Right from the beginning, Mandhana set the tone with a commanding 117 in the first ODI. She carried her red-hot form into the second match, scoring a brilliant 136 and guiding India to victory in a high-scoring encounter. Overall, Mandhana amassed a staggering 343 runs at an average of over 114, earning her the Player of the Series award.

This double triumph by Bumrah and Mandhana is a testament to the exceptional talent and dedication of Indian cricket. Their remarkable performances in June have not only brought glory to the nation but have also inspired fans worldwide. With both teams in top form, Indian cricket seems poised for even greater achievements in the future.
