The International Cricket Council (ICC) has introduced a new program which would see them honour the ‘Player of the Month’ across both male and female cricketers.

Fans would also have the opportunity to cast their votes but the majority of the votes will cast by the ICC Voting Academy, consisting of former players, broadcasters, and journalists from around the world.

ICC Player of the Month

This is a first-of-its-kind award that ICC has come up with. An independent panel comprising of fans, broadcasters, and journalists will choose their men’s player of the month and female player of the month.

“The award is a great way to connect with fans of the sport and celebrate performances of their favourite players through the year,” ICC General Manager Geoff Allardice, said in a statement.

“It gives us all an opportunity to acknowledge world-class performances on the field by male and female cricketers and they have been in abundance throughout January,” he added.

Voting System for the Award

The three nominees for each of the categories will be decided by ICC’s Award Nominating Committee based on their performance during that particular month. Then these nominees will be voted upon by the independent panel.

The Voting Academy will submit their votes by email and will retain a 90% share of the vote. Subsequently, on the 1st day of each month, fans registered with the ICC will be able to submit votes via the ICC website and will have a 10% share of the vote.

When will be the result updated?

The results will be declared on every second Monday of the month on the ICC’s digital channels.
