India’s Renuka Singh wins ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year 2022 | Cricket News

DUBAI: the Indian fast bowling star Renuka Singh picked up the ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year prize with his magnificent displays of bowling and swing in 2022, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on Wednesday.
Renuka Singh pocketed 18 ODI wickets at 14.88, economy 4.62 while the pacer scalped 22 T20I wickets at 23.95, economy 6.50.
Renuka beat Australian Darcie Brown, England’s Alice Capsey and fellow countrywoman Yastika Bhatia to become the recipient of ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year 2022.
The 26-year-old has caused quite a stir following her meteoric rise in a turbulent year for the Indian team.
In just 29 matches on both forms of the white ball in 2022, the right-winger won 40 wickets for her nation, stepping into the shoes of legendary Jhulan Goswami.
Renuka was highly effective in the ODI game, taking 18 wickets at just 14.88 per game, including eight in two matches against England and seven in the Indian series against Sri Lanka.
Eight wickets have been taken by Renuka in the seven T20I matches she has played in the year, and her performances at the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Cup have demonstrated that she is no coward in tournament material. In 11 matches, she took 17 wickets for a saving of just 5.21.
Renuka is likely to be one of India’s most reliable bowlers in the future due to his ability to swing the ball or locate deviations from the box.
In a spectacular performance against Australia, Renuka sent shockwaves through the Commonwealth Games pitch taking four wickets.
Alyssa Healy was knocked out by the swing bowler with an outside edge to Deepti Sharma on the slip, and the Australian captain was then caught on point on a false cut by Meg Lanning. Beth Mooney was tackled by a nip-backer after biting, and Tahlia McGrath was then taken down by a hoop shot.
Renuka finished 4/18 with 16 scoops, but as Australia stumbled to 34/4, the eventual Commonwealth Games champions chased India’s 154.
