Suryakumar Yadav Clinches ICC T20I Player of the Year Award in 2023 with Sensational Performances

India’s dynamic middle-order batsman, Suryakumar Yadav, has been honored with the prestigious Best T20I Player of the Year award. His exceptional performance in 2023, with a striking rate of nearly 150 and an impressive average of around 50 in the shortest format, has rightfully earned him this recognition. As Suryakumar Yadav recuperates from his injury, he is expected to play a pivotal role in India’s T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

Yadav’s remarkable stats include scoring 733 runs in 17 innings at an average of 48.86 and an impressive strike rate of 155.95. Noteworthy performances during the series against West Indies and Sri Lanka in 2023 contributed to his outstanding record. Additionally, he showcased his prowess by achieving half-centuries against Australia (80 off 42 balls) and South Africa (56 from 36 balls). In the final T20I of the year against South Africa in Johannesburg, he posted an impressive century, scoring 100 runs off just 56 balls.

One of the standout innings was his explosive 112 off 51 balls against Sri Lanka in January, featuring nine sixes and seven fours, averaging almost a boundary every three deliveries. This outstanding effort stands as the second-fastest hundred for India in men’s T20Is, following Rohit Sharma’s 35-ball century against the same opponent in 2017, leading India to a convincing 91-run victory.

Suryakumar Yadav’s consistent and impactful performances have undoubtedly established him as a key player in the T20 format for India but the star player is currently undergoing rehab having underwent surgery.

Suryakumar Yadav, appointed as the captain for the T20 series in India’s South Africa tour, unfortunately faced a setback with a sports hernia, leading to his absence in subsequent T20 engagements, including the T20I series against Afghanistan. The talented batsman underwent a successful surgery in Munich, Germany, marking a crucial step in his recovery journey.

Post-surgery, Suryakumar Yadav is slated to commence the rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. Although there’s no official announcement regarding the exact timeline for his return, reports suggest that he might achieve full fitness before the commencement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Fans can look forward to witnessing Suryakumar in action during the IPL 2024 season, provided his recovery progresses as anticipated.

As India concludes its last T20 series against Afghanistan ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup in June 2024, the team is entering the tournament on a positive note, having secured a 3-0 victory in the series.

Given Suryakumar Yadav’s status as the world’s number one batsman in T20 International cricket, his fitness holds paramount importance, especially with significant events like IPL 2024 and the T20 World Cup 2024 on the horizon.

While he participated in both forms of white-ball cricket, excelling in ODIs and T20Is, Rachin Ravindra particularly stood out in the longer format. In the 25 ODIs he played, he notched up 820 runs at an average of 41 and secured 18 wickets at 46.61.

Although his T20I performances didn’t match the level of his ODI success, they were still commendable. In the 12 T20Is he participated in, Rachin scored 91 runs at a strike rate of 133.82, also contributing with 5 wickets at an average of 32.80.

After accepting the ICC Men’s Emerging Cricketer of Year award, Rachin Ravindra said:

It’s obviously a very special feeling.”

Whenever you get recognised by the ICC for something it is always special.”

Reflecting back it has been a pretty whirlwind last year and having the opportunity to play so much cricket in so many different environments has been very special.”

Australia Dominates Women’s ODI Team of the Year at ICC Awards 2023

Australia showcased their dominance in the Women’s ODI Team of the Year 2023, with five players securing a spot in the XI. Chamari Athapaththathu from Sri Lanka was named the captain of this star-studded team, while Australia’s Phoebe Litchfield, Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Ash Gardner, and Annabel Sutherland comprised a significant presence.

Phoebe Litchfield stood out as the second-highest run-scorer in women’s ODIs for the year, amassing 485 runs with an impressive average of 53.8, including a century and four fifties.

Despite not scoring a century in 2023, Ellyse Perry secured her place in the XI. Amelia Kerr, the top-scorer in women’s ODIs for the year, was a strong contender for the ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year 2023.

Beth Mooney’s stellar performance in the middle-order saw her making 439 runs at an average exceeding 60. Nat Sciver-Brunt, despite playing only six ODIs, left a lasting impression, earning her a spot in both the Women’s ODI Player of the Year shortlist and the Best XI of the year.

Ash Gardner, the leading wicket-taker in women’s cricket in 2023, solidified her place in the XI with her impressive performances over the past year.
