Mushfiq wins ICC Player of the Month Award

Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim on Monday was announced as the winner of ICC Player of the Month Award for May for his outstanding batting effort during their last home ODI series against Sri Lanka.

Mushfiqur, who earlier won the player of the series award after scoring 237 runs during the three-match ODI series, helped Bangladesh win their maiden ODI series against Sri Lanka by scoring two brilliant knocks of 84 and 125 runs respectively in the first two ODIs.

Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali and Sri Lanka left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama were the other two nominees with Mushfiqur for the award.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Kathryn Bryce from Scotland was voted ICC Women’s Player of the Month after she scored 96 runs and took 5 wickets in four T20Is against Ireland in May.
