The West Indies pacer receives his maiden Player of the Month award after his heroic deeds in the West Indies tour of Australia 2024.

He has become the FIRST West Indies player to win the ICC men’s Cricketer of the Month award since January 2021. By this milestone, he joins the list of ICC award winners.

During the first test, he picked up the wicket of Steven Smith on the first ball in his international career. He bagged five wickets during the first innings of the match.

During the second match, his impressive spell created havoc in Australia’s batting line where he picked up seven wickets for 68 runs which helped the side to win their first test match in Australia after a long time.

While speaking after being named the Player of the Month Shamar Joseph said,

“I am extremely delighted to win this award. To get such an award on the world stage feels special. I enjoyed every moment of that experience playing for West Indies in Australia, especially the magic of the final day at the Gabba. Taking the wicket to win the match was a dream!

“It was a truly memorable moment for me, and I just want to continue to work hard and deliver more match-winning performances for the West Indies with the ball; and when required also with the bat.

“I want to say special thanks to the teammates and support staff in Australia who backed me from the start to get the job done. I will be the one receiving the award, but this is also for the team, and all the fans in the West Indies as well,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, Amy Hunter was named in the ICC awards in the category of Women’s Player of the Month for January 2024.
