DUBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday named the T20I Women’s Team of the Year (2021) and India’s opening batsman Smriti Mandana was included in the XI.
England’s Nat Sciver became named captain of the team while Amy Jones will don the wicket-keeper gloves.
The team only has one Indian while several players from England have been named in the line-up.
With 255 runs on an average by 31.87, Smriti Mandhana was India’s top scorer in this format in 2021. She hit two fifties in the nine games she played that year and regularly helped her side make quick starts as her course of 131, 44.
Tammy Beaumont’s dependable presence at the head of the Order has consistently provided England with steady starts. She played nine matches and amassed 303 runs with a 33.66 average, including three fifties.
Danni Wyatt, Beaumont’s partner-in-crime at the head of the order, had an equally good time in 2021. Wyatt accumulated 252 runs in nine games with a 31.50 average. While Beaumont had a solid presence at one end, Wyatt attacked the bowlers as her 133.33 batting average would suggest.
ICC Women’s T20I Team of the Year: Smriti Mandhana (India), Tammy Beaumont (England ), Danni Wyatt (England), Gaby Lewis (Ireland), Nat Sciver (c) (England), Amy Jones (England), Laura Wolvaardt (South Africa), Marizanne Kapp (South Africa), Sophie Ecclestone (England), Loryn Phiri ( Zimbabwe), Shabnim Ismail (South Africa).
