August ODI Player of the Month

Postby The Professor » Thu Sep 01, 2016 4:39 pm

It is always pleasing to be able to nominate a female cricketer for a player of the month gong with any sense of vindication. Where the female game is growing in popularity, revenue and coverage - there is still a belief that it is in some way deficient to the men's game. With performances like we saw from Sune Luus over the last month this should be a thing of the past.

The frighteningly young, frighteningly quick, frighteningly talented spinner destroyed Ireland's Women in an ODI series this month. In the four ODI games she participated in she got 14 wickets with her two stand out figures being 6/36 and 5/32. She coupled the former with 52 with the bat making her the first South African woman to get a fivefer and a half century.
"It has been said of the unseen army of the dead, on their everlasting march, that when they are passing a rural cricket ground the Englishman falls out of the ranks for a moment to look over the gate and smile."
