Cricket World Player Of The Week - Poonam Raut
With the start of the latest edition of the Indian Premier League, there has been only women’s international cricket action over the past week. The three-match Twenty20 series in Vadodara between India Women and Bangldesh Women was unsurprisingly won by India.
Poonam Raut wins this week’s award as she was the only player on either side to make more than 100 runs across the three matches over the course of what was a low-scoring series. Her 75 off 56 balls in the opening match was easily the most fluent innings of the series and she followed that up with contributions of 18 not out and 13 in the final two games.
Other contenders for the award included Raut’s opening partner from game one, Thirush Kamini, who made 56, and of the bowlers, Ekta Bisht, who was India’s leading wicket-taker with four victims at an average of 14.
For Bangladesh, captain Salma Khatun took five wickets, while Panna Ghosh took four.
