Jemimah Rodrigues was a key member of the Indian team that advanced all the way to the final of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, and she was one of the players who helped them get there.
In recognition of the outstanding performance that she turned in during the Commonwealth Games in August, Indian batter Jemimah Rodrigues received a nomination for the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Player of the Month award on Monday.
In addition, Australian gold medalists Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath are included among the nominees in the women’s category of the award. Rodrigues was a key member of the Indian team that advanced all the way to the finals of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, and he was one of the main reasons for their success. She finished the competition with 146 runs after playing in all five matches, which placed her fifth on the list of players who scored the most runs.
In India’s critical match against Barbados, Rodrigues was the best run-scorer for her team, scoring 56 runs unbroken off of 46 balls. This performance helped India win a position in the semifinals.
On the other hand, Mooney finished with the most runs scored at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. She began the month with a magnificent unbeaten 49-ball 70 against Pakistan in Australia’s last Group A game. She then followed it up with a patient 29-ball 36 against New Zealand in the semifinal match, batting her side out of trouble after the early wickets were taken.
McGrath wowed everyone with her outstanding brilliance in every aspect. She was one of the primary causes that led to Australia creating history and winning the first-ever women’s tournament in the event’s history, which resulted in them taking home the gold medal.
She finished the competition with eight wickets in five matches, which tied her for the joint second-highest total in the event.
Ben Stokes, the captain of England’s Test team, Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe, and Mitchell Santner, an all-rounder from New Zealand, are the players being considered for the men’s category.
In the second match against the Proteas, which took place in Manchester, Stokes took the wickets of Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen, which resulted in the South African team being bowled out for 151 runs.
After that, he backed it up with an outstanding century that he hit when England were in a precarious position after losing early wickets on the second day of the match.
The month of August was fantastic for Raza. During the month, Raza scored three century while competing against two of the most powerful countries in Asia, India and Bangladesh.
Santner, too, had an outstanding month both with the bat and the ball in his hands, and he was an essential cog in the Black Caps’ machine that won six of their eight matches during the month.
