Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews was named the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for May 2022 by the International Cricket Council on Monday.

Mathews, who scored 344 runs including two hundred against Bangladesh and helped Sri Lanka win the two-match Test series 1-0 last month, scooped the award ahead of fellow nominees Mushfiqur Rahim and Asitha Fernando.

Mathews is also the first Sri Lankan player to be named the ICC Player of the Month since its inception in January 2021.
