Bumrah’s impressive stats include an average of 8.26 and an economy rate of 4.17, making him a formidable force in the USA and Caribbean matches. His performance helped India become the first team to win the men’s T20 World Cup without losing a single match.

Mandhana’s Historic Achievement: India’s women’s team vice-captain, Smriti Mandhana, was also named the ICC Women’s Player of the Month.

Mandhana’s remarkable achievements include scoring a commanding 117 in the first match in Bengaluru and hitting 136 in 120 balls in the second match. She narrowly missed a hat-trick of hundreds, falling at 90 in the final match. During this period, Mandhana recorded 343 runs at an average of 114.33, with a strike rate over 100, earning her the Player of the Series award.

Bumrah and Mandhana’s Reactions: Bumrah acknowledged his fellow competitors and the team’s collective success, stating, “I wish to congratulate my captain Rohit Sharma and Rahmanullah Gurbaz for their excellent performances. To perform as well as we did at the tournament and lift the trophy at the end is incredibly special.”

Mandhana, reflecting on her award and the team’s performance, said, “I’m really glad to have won the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for June. I’m happy with the way the team has performed, and I’m happy to have contributed. We won the ODI and the Test series, and hopefully, we can continue our form.”
