Award for “Player of the Month” in the ICC Going to Mohammad Rizwan


After putting in some outstanding work during the month of September 2022, the Pakistani batter Mohammad Rizwan was awarded the title of ICC Men’s Player of the Month in Dubai for the very first time.

Rizwan prevailed against the likes of the renowned Indian spinner Axar Patel and the up-and-coming Australian all-rounder Cameron Green, both of whom had a memorable month of competition.

Rizwan turned up some scorching performances in Twenty20 Internationals throughout the month of September, demonstrating that he was in incredible shape. The batsman who holds the top spot in the ICC Men’s Player Rankings for Twenty20 Internationals kept his dominant streak going in the shortest version of the game and placed his name in the running for the Player of the Month award for September.

Rizwan, who was overcome with joy after learning that he had won the prize, stated in his acceptance speech, “I would want to thank Almighty Allah and convey my deepest satisfaction to everybody that assisted me to accomplish this honour.”

“I would want to express my deep gratitude to each and every one of my colleagues for making things simpler for me. Your confidence will increase as a result of these accomplishments. I am satisfied with my performance, and my goal for the next competition in Australia is to continue building on this success.

I would want to give this award to the people of Pakistan who have suffered because of the floods and the effects of climate change. It is my sincere hope that this would put a happy expression on their faces.

Rizwan scored seven fifties among the ten games that he participated in over the previous month. His month started off well with two scores of 70 or above in the Asia Cup, one against Hong Kong and one against India. He concluded the competition with yet another fifty and as the top run-scorer, but Pakistan was unable to clear the last barrier in the competition.

Four of his scores in the first five Twenty20 Internationals in the seven-match series against England were above 60, which helped his team take a 3-2 lead in the series. He concluded the series with 316 runs at an average of 63.20 while going at 138.60, which was enough to make him the top run-getter despite the fact that he played in one less game.
