Keshav Maharaj is the ICC Player of the Month April 2022
South African spinner Keshav Maharaj bowled brilliantly in the Test series against Bangladesh at home. Due to this, he got a place on the shortlist of the best cricketer of the month of ICC. This time, the left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj is named the ICC Player of the Month in April 2022.
Apart from Maharaj, his teammates Simon Harmer and Oman’s opener Jatinder Singh were shortlisted for the ICC award in April this year. He won the prize by defeating these two. However, the Maharaja deserved this award. He is the biggest contributor to South Africa’s 18-wicket win in the Test series against Bangladesh. That’s why the 32-year-old cricketer won the Player of the Series award.
Maharaj played great not only with the ball but also with the bat in South Africa’s victory in the second Test against Bangladesh at Port Elizabeth. He made it easy for the team to win the series 2-0 with 64 runs in the last over. The cricketer has also been praised by members of the ICC voting panel.
JP Duminy, a former South African batsman and a member of the ICC’s current voting panel, said: It’s great to see him working with Simon Harmer. Although we already know. ‘
Another member of the voting panel, Lisa Sthalekar, also praised Duminy. The Australian legend, however, does not value Maharaja’s bowling but runs with the bat. “He was a key member of South Africa’s success in winning the series,” said the ICC Hall of Famer landlord.
