ICC Awards in Women Cricket as well as ODI & T20i- team of year

Perry wins big at ICC Awards; Lanning named captain of T20I, ODI teams

December 17 2019

Ellyse Perry bagged the Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Award award as well as the ODI Player of the Year

Ellyse Perry bagged the prestigious Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Award for ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year and was also named the Women's ODI Player of the Year. Making it an Australian sweep, Alyssa Healy bagged the T20I Player of the Year trophy for the second year running while Meg Lanning was named captain of both the ODI and the T20I Teams of the Year, the ICC announced on Tuesday (December 17).

Perry was in top form across formats, hitting three hundreds, including one in the Women's Ashes Test. She averaged 73.50 from 12 ODIs this year, in which she also picked 21 wickets, including a national record 7 for 22. She became the first player to complete the double of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in T20I cricket.

"It's an amazing honour and I'm a little bit shocked, given how many amazing performances there have been across the year," said Perry, who has now claimed the Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Award for the second time in three years. "It's amazing to be acknowledged and I do truly appreciate it. It's a really nice way to finish the year on a personal note."

Healy recorded the highest score by a woman in T20Is with her 61-ball unbeaten 148 against Sri Lanka in October. She reached her maiden T20I hundred off just 46 balls, also a record for the fastest century ever by an Australian man or woman.

"I'm really pumped to be awarded the T20I Cricketer of the Year," said Healy. "The Australian women's team had a fantastic 12-month period and we played some really consistent T20 cricket. Whilst the individual award is really nice for me personally, I think it was great to see our team play so well throughout that 12-month period, especially leading into a home World Cup in 2020."

Meanwhile, Thailand's medium-pacer Chanida Sutthiruang, who picked 12 wickets at the ICC Women's T20 WC Qualifier to help her team enter the main round for the first time ever, was named as the Emerging Cricketer of the Year.

India's Smriti Mandhana made it to both the ODI and T20I Team of the Year, accompanied by pacer-bowling allrounders Shikha Pandey and Jhulan Goswami, and legspinner Poonam Yadav in the ODI XI while all-rounders Deepti Sharma and Radha Yadav made it to the T20I team.

"It's a huge honour to be named captain of the ICC ODI and T20 Teams of the Year alongside some incredible players," said Lanning. "It's been an amazing year for the Australian team and we're looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead in 2020. A home T20 WC is an opportunity that doesn't come along often, but we are looking forward to and embracing the challenge of performing well in front of our home crowd," she concluded.
