Yashasvi Jaiswal crowned ICC Men’s Player of the Month for exploits during ENG series

Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 560 runs last month, against England in three Tests, to get the ICC Player of the Month Award.

After a stupendous IND vs ENG Test series, India opener Yashasvi Jaiswal has been duly rewarded for his efforts. He was named the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for February, where he emerged as best performer.

Annabel Sutherland, the Australia all-rounder, was named the ICC Women’s Player of the Month following thrilling Test match performance against South Africa.

Meanwhile, Jaiswal was selected for the award after he scored 560 runs in Feb alone, at an average of 112. He also ensured that India bounced back from 1-0 deficit in the series, to claim a 4-1 win. That included a 209-run innings in Vizag, followed by 214 in Rajkot.

Jaiswal also became the first Men’s Player of the Month for India, since September 2023. Shubman Gill had won it the last time for Indian. After getting the award, he said, “I’m very happy to win this ICC award and I hope that there will be more in the future. It’s my first five match series and it’s been an incredible experience with all my mates.

“I continue to put in the hard yards in my practice sessions, learning from my seniors and trying my best on the ground. My highlight was probably celebrating my double-century in Rajkot. That was something I really enjoyed.

“I’m really enjoying this moment and I’m looking forward to the next series.”
