Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the Player of the Month award for his superb show in the recent series against England. The 31-year-old seamer picked up six wickets with an economy rate of 4.65 in the three ODIs. Bhuvneshwar also captured four wickets with a fantastic economy rate of 6.38 in the five T20Is to emerge as the standout bowler in the white ball series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the third consecutive Indian recipient of the award since its inception early this year.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant claimed the January honours for his brilliant performance in Australia. On the other hand, veteran off-spinner R Ashwin won it for the month of February following a superb all-round show in the home Test series against England. Besides Bhuvneshwar, leg-spinner Rashid Khan of Afghanistan and Zimbabwe's Sean Williams were also elected in the men's category. From the women's category, Lizelle Lee was named the ICC Women's Player of the Month for March 2021. She played four ODIs against India. She scored a hundred and two half-centuries to move to the top of the ICC Women's ODI Batting Rankings.

The awards recognise the best performances of both male and female cricketers

The world governing body of cricket has stated that the awards would recognise the best performances of male and female cricketers across all formats throughout the year. The ICC also said that all the cricket fanatics are invited to vote online every month to award their favourite male and female cricketers across all game formats. An independent ICC Voting Academy consisting of former players, broadcasters, and journalists worldwide will team up with cricket fans to vote for the winners every month. All the nominees for each of the categories will be fixed by the Committee. It will be based on their on-field performances and overall achievements during that period of that month.

The Voting Academy is going to submit the votes by email and reserve a 90% share of the vote. However, on the first day of each month, the fanatics registered with the ICC will submit votes through the website. They will also have a 10 per cent share of the vote. All the respective winners will be declared every second Monday of the month on the ICC's digital channels.
