ICC Men’s Player of the Month nominees
Three players have been nominated for the prestigious award, given their exceptional performance throughout the month.
Indian star batter Virat Kohli
Coming out of a bleak patch, the 33-year-old superstar player only played four innings last month. However, he agitated three magical knocks. His 82 not out against arch-rival Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup will forever be remembered.
Overall, Kohli accumulated 205 T20I runs in October month at a mind-boggling average of 205 and an even astonishing strike rate of 150.73.
South Africa’s David Miller
Throughout 2022, David Miller had been relishing an extraordinary form. Moreover, the left-hander agitated a total of 303 runs in the previous month with an outstanding average of 303, and a smashing strike rate of 146.37.
Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe)
The 36-year-old Zimbabwe all-rounder delivered some stellar performances with the ball and bat in his hands. Raza carried his rich vein of form forward into the marquee tournament. He first scored 82 against Ireland, followed by a superb 40 off 23 against Scotland. Additionally, played a massive role with the ball against big teams like Pakistan and West Indies.
ICC Women’s Player of the Month nominees
This tally is fully dominated by Asian players, who have been shortlisted by ICC for their fantastic performance in the month of October.
Jemimah Rodrigues (India)
The 22-year-old Indian batter turned out to be its best during this year’s Women’s Asia Cup. Her magnificent knocks with the bat paved India’s way to the title.
Nida Dar (Pakistan)
The veteran Pakistan all-rounder produced a spectacular performance in the Women’s Asian Championship. Dar amassed 145 runs in six innings, at an average of 72.50. In addition to that, she claimed 8 wickets in total.

Another Indian player’s magnificent performance bought her to this tally. Deepti Sharma has played a vital cog in the Indian team several times. She once again delivered an outstanding performance in the last month’s Women’s Asia Cup.
