The International Cricket Council announced on Tuesday that Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur will lead the 2022 ICC Women’s ODI Team of the Year, which will also feature colleagues opener Smriti Mandhana and quick bowler Renuka Singh.
Alyssa Healy (Australia), Laura Wolvaardt (South Africa), Nat Sciver (England), Beth Mooney (Australia), Amelia Kerr (New Zealand), Sophie Ecclestone (England), Ayabonga Khaka (South Africa), and Shabnim Ismail are the other players in the ICC Women’s T20I team of the year 2022. (South Africa).
As she helped herself to a century and six half-centuries for the calendar year, Mandhana improved her consistency in 2022. At the World Cup in New Zealand, she beat the West Indies with a fantastic 123-point performance, although possibly it was later.
In September, Mandhana scored an outstanding 91 runs against England in Hove. He then finished the year strong with innings of 40 and 50 runs.
Harmanpreet, an accomplished all-rounder, continues to be one of cricket’s most reliable players. Throughout the year, she scored two century and five half-centuries, including an unbroken 143 against England in September. Additionally, the 33-year-old contributed five significant wickets with her more than competent off-spin.
At the beginning of 2022, Renuka made her international debut against New Zealand, but she was unable to crack the formidable India XI during a fruitless 50-over World Cup campaign.
The right-armer had another opportunity to play ODI cricket as a result of her outstanding T20I performances, and she ended the year as one of the top seamers in women’s cricket.
In 2022, she played at just seven games and took 18 wickets, with her best figure of 4/28 coming against Sri Lanka in Pallekele in the middle of the year. The pacer then put the finishing touches on the year with back-to-back four-wicket hauls in a September match against England.
