New Delhi . The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday named Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur as the captain of the ICC Women’s ODI Team for 2022, which also includes her fellow opener Smriti Mandhana and fast bowler Renuka Singh. Alyssa Healy (Australia), Laura Wolvaardt (South Africa), Nat Sciver (England), Beth Mooney (Australia), Amelia Kerr (New Zealand), Sophie Ecclestone (England), Ayabonga Khaka (South Africa) in the ICC Women’s T20 Team of the Year 2022 ) and Shabnam Ismail (South Africa) are the other players.
Mandhana had a stellar 2022 as she notched up a century and six half-centuries for the calendar year. She scored a brilliant 123 against the West Indies in the World Cup in New Zealand, but in England the 26-year-old Mandhana scored a brilliant 91 at Hove in September and followed that up with scores of 40 and 50 to end the year.
Experienced all-rounder Harmanpreet is one of the most consistent performers in world cricket. He hit two centuries and five half-centuries during the calendar year, scoring 143 not out against England in September. The 33-year-old Harmanpreet also bowled decent off-spin with five valuable wickets.
Renuka made her debut against New Zealand in early 2022 but could not break into a strong India squad during their unsuccessful 50-over World Cup campaign.
After a stellar performance at the T20 level, the right-handed batsman got another shot at ODI cricket and ended the year as one of the form seamers in women’s cricket.
He took a total of 18 wickets in just seven matches in 2022, with his best performance of 4/28 coming against Sri Lanka at Pallekele in the middle of the year. The fast bowler ended the year in fine form with a four-wicket haul against England in September.
