Smriti Mandhana: ICC once again nominated as the best female cricketer of the year

Mandhana scored 594 runs in T20 for India in 2022 and no one in the world scored more runs than him. Similarly, she became the second highest run scorer in ODI cricket with 696 runs.

New Delhi. The last days of the outgoing year were full of news. Among these big news like death of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, death of great Pele, who is considered to be the god of football worldwide and Rishabh Pant’s injury in a road accident, the news of a column published on the sports page was small to see, but Vice-captaincy of the Indian women’s cricket team was huge for Smriti Mandhana. In fact, she has once again been nominated for the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year Award. It is just a nomination to say and the challenge before the left-handed opening batsman is to compete with the best players in the world.

ICC has nominated a total of four women players for the ‘Women Cricketer of the Year Award’ for 2022. Apart from Mandhana, big names like England all-rounder Nate Seaver, New Zealand all-rounder Amelia Kerr and Australia opener Beth Mooney are included. By the way, looking at Mandhana’s performance this year, her chances of winning are more. Mandhana scored 594 runs in T20 for India in 2022 and no one in the world scored more runs than him. Similarly, she became the second highest run scorer in ODI cricket with 696 runs.

Smriti showed her bat in two big tournaments this year – Women’s ODI World Cup and Commonwealth Games. The Indian women’s cricket team performed brilliantly by winning a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games. Talking about early life and education, Smriti Mandhana, who belongs to a Marwari family from Maharashtra, was born on 18 July 1996 in Mumbai to Srinivas and Smita Mandhana. Smriti was very young when her family shifted to Madhavnagar in Sangli district. He watched his father and brother play cricket at the district level from a very young age and became familiar with the bat, ball, wicket, pads and gloves very early. If there is recognition then it does not take time to become friendship.

Within no time, Smriti developed a friendship with the bat and her brother gave her batting practice by bowling for her. The result of this was that at the age of just nine, he was selected in the Under-15 team of Maharashtra. She was just 11 years old when she got selected in Maharashtra’s Under-19 team. She was included in the women’s Test cricket team in 2014, considering her impressive performance in first-class cricket and aggressive batting. Smriti’s family constantly tries their best to improve her game.

While mother Smita takes care of his diet, his clothes and other needs, his brother still bowls in the nets. Father runs a chemical business as well as manages Smriti’s cricket program. The brilliance of Smriti Mandhana’s brilliant batting in international cricket is visible every now and then and it is quite possible that once again she will be declared the best female cricketer of the year by the ICC.
