India's fast bowling star Renuka Singh clinched the ICC Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year award with her magnificent displays of seam and swing bowling in 2022, International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on Wednesday.
Renuka Singh bagged 18 ODI wickets at 14.88, economy 4.62 while the pacer scalped 22 T20I wickets at 23.95, economy 6.50. Renuka beat Australia's Darcie Brown, England's Alice Capsey and compatriot Yastika Bhatia to become the recipient of ICC Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year 2022.
The 26-year-old has generated a lot of noise as a result of her meteoric rise during a hectic year for the India team. In just 29 matches across the two white-ball forms in 2022, the right-armer claimed 40 wickets for her nation, stepping into the shoes of the legendary Jhulan Goswami.
Renuka was very effective in the ODI game, taking 18 wickets at just 14.88 per game, eight of which came in two matches against England and seven in India's series versus Sri Lanka.Read more on sports.ndtv.com
