The International Cricket Council (ICC) yesterday announced the nominees for May’s ICC Player of the Month Awards to recognise the best performances from both male and female cricketers across all forms of international cricket.

In the month of May, Hasan Ali of Pakistan played two Tests against Zimbabwe where he took a total of 14 wickets.

From Sri Lanka’s camp, debutant Praveen Jayawickrama played one Test against Bangladesh, where he took a total of 11 wickets at 16.11.

He bowled Sri Lanka to victory in the second Test against Bangladesh with the best match figures by any Sri Lankan bowler on Test debut.

Mushfiqur Rahim of Bangladesh played one Test and three One Day Internationals (ODIs) against Sri Lanka.

He helped Bangladesh win their first ODI series against Sri Lanka by scoring 125 in the second ODI.

The ICC Player of the Month voting process:

The three nominees for either category are shortlisted based on on-field performances and overall achievements during that month (the first to the last day of each calendar month).

This shortlist is then voted on by the independent ICC Voting Academy and fans around the world.

The ICC Voting Academy comprises prominent members of the cricket family including senior journalists, former players, broadcasters, and some members of the ICC Hall of Fame. The Voting Academy will submit their votes by email and retain a 90 percent share of the vote.

Additionally, fans registered with the ICC will be able to vote via the ICC website once the shortlisted players are announced and will have a 10 percent share of the vote.

Winners will be announced every second Monday of the month on the ICC’s digital channels. (ICC)
