Fatima Sana receives ICC Women’s Emerging Cricketer of the Year 2021 trophy
Pakistani pacer Fatima Sana received the trophy of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year award for 2021.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, the star player said:
“Alhumdullilah […] It’s an absolute honour to receive the trophy of @ICC Women’s Emerging Cricketer Of The Year.”
“Onwards and upwards InshaAllah. Pakistan Zindabad,” said Fatima, expressing her intent to perform well in the future as well.
The pacer has made the nation proud by not only bagging the ICC award but also by becoming the first female cricketer from the country to win an ICC accolade.
The ICC in a statement had said that the 20-year-old “impressed one and all with her all-round efforts in 2021”.
“She became an integral part of Pakistan’s ODI and T20I side owing to her wicket-taking ability as a bowler, and ability to add handy runs down the order at the same time,” the statement read.
