Asif Ali tops Shakib, Wiese to clinch ICC’s monthly award

Popular News

Pakistan’s Asif Ali and Ireland’s Laura Delany have been voted the ICC Players of the Month for October, the International Cricket Council announced on Tuesday.

Ali beat Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan and Namibia's David Wiese to the men's award, and Delany beat teammate Gaby Lewis and Zimbabwe's Mary-Anne Musonda to the women's prize.

Ali scored 52 runs without defeat across three matches for Pakistan in October at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, scoring at a strike rate of 273.68.

He first grabbed headlines at the tournament by blasting 27 not out from 12 balls to help Pakistan defeat New Zealand, but it was what he did in the next game that made him a household name.
