Dubai. The Indian cricket team has made its presence felt all over the world by winning the ICC T20 World Cup. Both the male and female players of Team India are in the headlines these days. Jaspreet Bumrah, who was the hero of India's victorious campaign in the T20 World Cup, was on Tuesday selected as the best male player for the month of June by the International Cricket Council (ICC). It was a moment of double happiness for India as the vice-captain of the women's team Smriti Mandhana was selected as the 'Best Female Player of the Month of June'.

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah won the title by defeating Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Afghanistan's Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Mandhana won the women's award by leaving behind England's Maia Boucher and Sri Lanka's Wismi Gunaratne. ICC said in a statement that Bumrah, who was named the best player of the tournament by taking 15 wickets in the T20 World Cup last month, has also won the best player award for June.

In an ICC statement, Bumrah said, “I am delighted to be named the ICC Men's Player of the Year for June. This is a special honour for me after spending some memorable weeks in the USA and the West Indies. As a team, we had many opportunities to celebrate and I enjoyed contributing to it.” Bumrah took wickets at an average of 8.26 in the T20 World Cup and conceded just 4.17 runs per over.
