ICC Player of the Month: Mushfiqur Rahim, Kathryn Bryce named Player of the Month for May- Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim and Scotland player Kathryn Bryce have been named Player of the Month for May by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

While Mushfique Rahim was voted ahead of Praveen Jayawickrama, Hasan Ali; Byrce won against her competitors Gaby Lewis and Leah Paul.

Mushfiqur played one Test and three ODIs against Sri Lanka in the month of May where he helped Bangladesh win their first ODI series against Sri Lanka by scoring 125 in the second ODI.

“Even after 15 years at the highest level, Mushfiqur has not lost his appetite for run-making. He was at his imperious best in the one-day series at home against Sri Lanka, a picture of consistency with the highlight being 125 in the second match which helped his side secure a winning 2-0 lead in the three-match series. What made his feat even more notable was that it was Bangladesh’s first-ever ODI series triumph against the 1996 World Cup champions. To shore up the middle order and don the wicket-keeping gloves speaks volumes of his fitness and skills,” said VVS Laxman representing the ICC Voting Academy.

She is the first player from Scotland, male, or female, to make it to the top 10 of the batting or bowling lists in the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings released recently. Kathryn played four T20Is against Ireland where she scored 96 runs and took 5 wickets with an economy rate of 4.76 in the month of May.

“Kathryn’s all-round game came through in a series that her team lost. She batted with flair and bowled well too and deserved to be the player of the month for May,” said Ramiz Raza, who was also representing the ICC Voting Academy.
