The International Cricket Council (ICC) today revealed the latest players shortlisted for the ICC Men’s Player of the Month awards for September.

Shubman Gill (India)

The rising star of Indian cricket was in superb touch during the month of September as he amassed a total of 480 ODI runs at an imposing average of 80. Shubman Gill scored two half-centuries and an impressive century against Bangladesh as India won the Asia Cup, and then continued that form into the ODI series against Australia.

The right-hander hit an excellent 74 in the opening match of the series in Mohali and bettered that performance when reaching triple figures in the next game when making 104 in Indore.

Mohammed Siraj (India)

The right-armer produced a handful of excellent spells during September but it was his match-winning six-wicket haul against Sri Lanka in the final of the Asia Cup that really stood out. Mohammed Siraj ripped through Sri Lanka’s batting line-up to collect the superb figures of 6/21 and played a major role in helping India claim the coveted Asia Cup trophy.

In total, Mohammed Siraj picked up a total of 11 wickets for the month at an average of just 17.27.

Dawid Malan (England)

The reliable left-hander displayed his class during the majority of September as he claimed the Player of the Series award for his performance during England’s ODI series with New Zealand. Dawid Malan played three matches during that series and registered scores of 54, 96 and 127 to show his prowess ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India.

The top-order batter also scored his runs at a quick clip, earning a strike rate of 105.72 overall during that New Zealand series.
