Shrubsole Named Player Of The Tournament
England's Anya Shrubsole has been named as the player of the ICC Women's World Twenty20, which Australia won, beating England by six wickets in the final.
However, despite England finishing as runners-up, Shrubsole takes the personal award after taking 12 wickets at an average of 5.75 in five matches England played before the final.
She took one more wicket in the final to finish with a tournament tally of 13.
The Somerset quick bowler was the unanimous choice of a select group of experts - David Boon, Marais Erasmus, Wasim Akram, Nasser Hussain, Ian Bishop and Utpal Shuvro.
"It is clearly disappointing to finish as runner-up, but we got to the final, which is a wonderful achievement," Shrubsole said.
"To be named as Women’s Player of the Tournament is humbling, and it is also a reflection of the hard work we’ve all put in as a team.
"I would have loved for us to win the title, but it wasn’t to be for us this year."
