ICC: Babar Azam won the ICC Men’s Player of the Month and the Women’s award went to Alyssa Healy of Australia

Babar Azam from Pakistan won the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for April 2021.

On Sunday, May 10, the International Cricket Council (ICC) declared the winners of the ICC Player of the Month Awards for April.

Babar Azam from Pakistan won the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for April 2021, for his stunning performances across all the formats in the recently concluded series against South Africa. He was chosen as the April winner by fans and the ICC voting academy.

In the third ODI against South Africa, Babar scored 13 rating points to reach a career-best 6565 points by winning an 82-ball 94-run match. He contributed 122 runs from 59 balls in the successful chase of Pakistan in the third match of a T20 series against the same opposition.

On Azam’s performance, Ramiz Raja representing the ICC Voting Academy said, “The world bats in two ways in white-ball cricket. One way is to destroy attacks with muscle and force and then there is the Babar Azam way, like conducting a batting symphony with punch, panache, and flair, and he deserves to win this award.”

And from the woman’s side, Alyssa Healy was named as the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for April 2021.

Healy played three ODIs against New Zealand, scoring 155 runs at an average of 51.66 and a strike rate of 98.72. Her stunning performance against New Zealand helped Australia record a winning streak of 24 ODIs.

On Alyssa Healy’s performance in April, Ian Bishop representing the ICC Voting Academy added, “Healy deserves to win the ICC Women’s Player of the Month – April as she added the runs at the top consistently and at a good tempo to help set up Australia’s scoring in chases and target setting across all three games of their record-breaking series.”
