ICC Awards: Renuka Singh, Marco Jansen named Emerging Cricketers of the Year

While Renuka wreaked havoc in white-ball cricket, Jansen shone with the ball in Tests

The awards keep coming for Indian players as Renuka Singh has been named the ICC Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year for a sensational 2022 in which she announced herself to the world. Renuka beat Australia's Darcie Brown, England's Alice Capsey and compatriot Yastika Bhatia to become the recipient of ICC Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year 2022.

Renuka, who made her international debut in October 2021, played a total 29 international matches in 2022 and picked a staggering 40 wickets. While she picked 22 wickets in the 22 T20Is she played, at a fine economy of 6.50, it was in the ODI format that the 26-year-old wreaked havoc.

Renuka only played 7 ODIs in 2022 but picked an astonishing 18 wickets, striking every 19.3 balls. She picked four three-wicket hauls and one three-wicket haul, with her career-best showing coming against Sri Lanka in Pallekele, where she bamboozled the hosts with the new ball, running through the Lankan batting line-up, registering figures of 10-1-28-4. 

She was also the star performer for the Women in Blue in their famous series win in England, picking back-to-back four-fers to help the side script a famous 2-1 victory.

Earlier today, another Indian bagged top honors as Suryakumar Yadav was named the ICC Men’s T20I Cricketer of the Year. 

Meanwhile, South Africa's Marco Jansen has been named the Emerging Men's Cricketer of the Year. Jansen made his international debut in the Boxing Day Test against India in 2021 and 2022 saw the 22-year-old take the world by storm. The left-arm seamer, overall, played 14 international matches in 2022 and bagged 44 wickets. 

It was in the Test arena that Jansen made the world take notice of him as in 10 Tests, he picked 41 wickets at an average of 21.65. His finest showing in South African colours came in the whites against India at the start of the last calendar year, where he finished the three-match Test series with 19 wickets at an average of 16.47 to help the Proteas maintain their unbeaten record against India in Tests at home.
