India’s fast bowler Renuka Singh has won the ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year award for her magnificent display of sead and swing bowling in 2022, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on Wednesday. Renuka Singh took 18 ODI wickets at 14.88, economy 4.62 as the pacemaker scalped 22 T20I wickets at 23.95, economy 6.50. Renuka defeated Australia’s Darcie Brown, England’s Alice Capsey and compatriot Yastika Bhatia to become the 2022 ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year.
The 26-year-old has caused quite a stir as a result of her meteoric rise during a hectic year for the India team.

In just 29 matches in the two white-ball forms in 2022, the right arm claimed 40 wickets for her country, stepping into the shoes of the legendary Jhulan Goswami.

Renuka was highly effective in ODI play, taking 18 wickets at just 14.88 per game, eight of which came in two matches against England and seven in India’s series against Sri Lanka.

Renuka took eight wickets in the seven T20I matches she played during the year, and her performances at the Commonwealth Games and Asia Cup proved she is no coward when it comes to tournaments. In 11 matches she took 17 wickets for an economy of just 5.21.

Renuka is likely to be one of India’s most reliable bowlers going forward due to her ability to swing the ball or pinpoint anomalies from the surface.

In a spectacular performance against Australia, Renuka sent shockwaves through the Commonwealth Games field by taking four wickets.

Alyssa Healy was taken out by the swing bowler with an outside edge to Deepti Sharma on a slip, and the Australia captain was then caught with a Meg Lanning false cut. Beth Mooney was attacked by a nip backer after she chewed it, and Tahlia McGrath was then removed by a swinging in hoop shot.
