Warner named ICC men's player of the month, Hayley Mathews bags women's award

David Warner's exploits were key to Australia winning their maiden T20 World Cup in November

Australia opener David Warner and West Indies all-rounder Hayley Matthews were on Monday adjudged the men's and women's ICC Players of the Month of November.

Warner scored 209 runs at an average of 69.66 in the T20 World Cup which were crucial in Australia's title win last month. The opener pipped Pakistan's Abid Ali and New Zealand' Tim Southee for the award.

Matthews' all-round show in the three-match ODI series against Pakistan won her the women's award ahead of left-arm spinners Anam Amin of Pakistan and Nahida Akter of Bangladesh.

He was also named Player of the Match in an earlier Super 12 match against the West Indies for a blistering 89 not out off 56 balls. Warner aggregated 209 runs at an average of 69.66 and a strike rate of 151.44 in four T20Is during the period.

"David was back to his scintillating best during the T20 World Cup and his aggression at the top of the order was outstanding. His 209 runs at a strike rate of 151 in four innings simply tells the story," Jury member Russel Arnold said about Warner.

"There was no recovering from the early onslaught by Warner and his stroke play was pleasing to the eye.

Matthews scored 141 runs and grabbed nine wickets at an average of 13.11 as West Indies cleansweeped the series 3-0.

"Hayley was the star, performing with both bat and ball. Her all-round performance was one of the reasons the West Indies won against Pakistan, and she deserves to be the women's Player of the Month," jury member Irfan Pathan said about Matthews.

The selection process for the monthly awards, which were instituted in January, combines votes cast by former players, prominent journalists and global cricket fans.
