Anya Shrubsole bags Womenâ€™s Player of the Tournament
Dhaka, Apr 6 (IBNS): England medium-pacer Anya Shrubsole was on Sunday named as the Womenâ€™s Player of the Tournament after the final of the ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Dhaka.
"Shrubsole was the unanimous choice of the select group of experts following her consistently strong form," the ICC said in a statement.
The 22-year-old grabbed 12 wickets at an average of 5.75 in the lead up to the final, including three for six against India and three for nine against Sri Lanka.
Collecting her trophy at the post-match presentation, Shrubsole said: “It is clearly disappointing to finish as runner-up, but we got to the final, which is a wonderful achievement."
“To be named as Women’s Player of the Tournament is humbling, and it is also a reflection of the hard work we’ve all put in as a team. I would have loved for us to win the title, but it wasn’t to be for us this year," she said.
