Prabath Jayasuriya, a spin wonder for Sri Lanka, and Emma Lamb, a promising all-rounder for England’s women’s cricket squad, were both selected “Player of the Month” for July by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday.
In order to win the honour, the 30-year-old Jayasuriya had to fend off competition from Jonny Bairstow, an in-form hitter for England who was also the winner of Player of the Month for June, and Gustav McKeon, a young player from France. Jayasuriya, who made his debut in a Test match during the final Test match that Sri Lanka played against Australia in Galle earlier in July, collected 12 wickets and led the Lankans to a victory that levelled the series.
“I am overjoyed with the news that I have been selected as the ICC Men’s Player of the Month, and I would want to express my gratitude to the supporters for their votes.” “It has been an incredible month for me, as I made my debut in a test and also got the opportunity to contribute for my team to level the test series played against Australia and Pakistan,” Jayasuriya said. “Certainly, it has been an incredible month for me.” [C]onsiderably, it has been an incredible month for me.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank my fans, teammates, coaches, family and friends for assisting me along my road,” he continued. “I couldn’t be more delighted with what I am experiencing at this point in my life.” In the meantime, Lamb received recognition for his outstanding performance in the one-day international series against South Africa.
Lamb scored a total of 234 runs in three games, including a century that won the game (102 runs off 97 balls) and two half-centuries that followed (67 runs off 65 balls and 65 runs off 66 balls) in the next two games.
“It’s a huge honour to be recognised as the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for July. This is a very happy moment for me. Lamb said, “It’s been fantastic to be able to score some runs and help the team win, and I’m very happy to have earned my spot at the top of the order in the Test and ODI teams.” “I’m extremely delighted to have earned my spot at the top of the order in the Test and ODI teams.
“Since every member of the squad played a role in our success in the multi-format series against South Africa, all I want to do is continue to score runs for the team. She continued, “I feel extremely fortunate that my efforts over the course of the past month have been rewarded, and I aim to continue on with my good form.”
