Nahida nominated for ICC Player of the Month


Bangladesh women’s national cricket team left-arm spinner Nahida Akter has been nominated for the ICC Player of the Month award for November.

The nominations for November were announced by the International Cricket Council on Tuesday, which considered performances across formats and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 held in UAE and Oman.

Alongside Nahida, Anam Amin of Pakistan and West Indies all-rounder Haley Matthews was nominated for the women’s award.

In the men’s category, Australia’s David Warner, who was the player of the tournament of the ICC T20 World Cup, was nominated along with Pakistan’s Abid Ali and New Zealand’s Tim Southee.

Nahida grabbed 13 wickets in four one-day internationals during the selection period at an economy rate of 2.22. 11 of those wickets came as Bangladesh claimed a 3-0 series victory in Zimbabwe, including figures of five for 21 in the third match in Bulawayo. The spinner’s remaining two wickets came in a memorable victory over Pakistan in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2021 in Harare.

The three nominees from either category are voted on by the independent ICC Voting Academy and fans around the world. The ICC Voting Academy comprises prominent members of the cricket fraternity including well-known journalists, former players, broadcasters, and members of the ICC Hall of Fame.

The Voting Academy submit their votes by email and hold a 90 percent share of the vote. Fans registered with the ICC vote via the ICC website, accounting for the remaining 10 percent.

The result will be announced on December 13, the second Monday of this month.
