ICC Player of the Month: ICC has nominated three players for the best cricketer of December 2021. These include Indian cricketer Mayank Agarwal. Along with Mayank, the name of New Zealand spinner Ejaz Patel, who took all 10 wickets of India in an innings of Mumbai Test, has also been included in this list. Mitchell Starc, who performed a strong all-rounder in the Ashes, is also in the race to become the best cricketer of the month of December.
Why did Mayank Agarwal get the nomination?
Mayank Agarwal played two test matches in December. In this, he scored 276 runs at an average of 69 runs. After the Kanpur Test against New Zealand was drawn, Team India needed to win the Mumbai Test to win the series. Mayank Agarwal gave India this victory. He scored 150 and 62 runs in both the innings of the Mumbai Test.
After this, he also played an important role in the historic victory against South Africa in Centurion. Mayank shared a 117-run partnership with KL Rahul in the Centurion Test. Thanks to this partnership, India scored 327 runs in the first innings. India’s first innings score on the bowler’s helpful wicket became the reason for the team’s historic victory.
