May 2017 One Day Player of the Month

Postby The Professor » Tue May 30, 2017 3:06 pm

In a month where the major ODI teams have been taking a sabbatical in preparation for next month's Champions Trophy, it has given a chance to some of our cousins in the Domestic, Associate and Women's game to come to the fore.

There have been a myriad of contenders but two outstanding contributions stand out for me.

Mohammed Irfan (Uganda)

The Ugandan team tend to play small clusters of games once or twice a year, meaning that their players need to hit the ground running and Irfan did just that. He scored 172 with the bat including a high score of 108* against Malaysia. He also excelled with the ball bagging nine wickets in the Division 3 tournament, his best figures being 5-38 against Singapore.

Deepti Sharma (India Women)

Sharma has shown her worth with both bat and ball in May. She is more established as a bowler and took 8 wickets in her five matches, including 4-17 against Zimbabwe Women. She also made a huge contribution with the bat when she bagged 188 runs against Ireland Women.
"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."
