India pacer Renuka Singh has been named as the ICC Emerging Women's Cricketer of the Year 2022 after her impressive display of seam and swing bowling.

Renuka defeated Australia's Darcie Brown, England's Alice Capsey and compatriot Yastika Bhatia to earn the honours. The 26-year-old Renuka took 18 ODI wickets at 14.88 and an economy of 4.62 and 22 T20I wickets at 23.95 and an economy of 6.50 in just 29 white-ball matches.

Renuka, who burst into life in a busy 12 months for India, became a thorn for the Australian line-up during the seven meetings in T20Is. Her performances during the Commonwealth Games and the Asia Cup further ensured that India have found a rightful successor of veteran Jhulan Goswami.

She sent waves through her bowling during the

Commonwealth Games last year as she returned with four wickets against Australia. She rattled the star-studded Australian top-order, claiming the wickets of Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath.

Renuka finished with 4/18 with 16 dot balls as Australia stumbled to 34/4 before the eventual CWG gold medallist side Australia made their way back in the match. She was named in India's squad for the upcoming ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2023.

Meanwhile, Australia all-rounder Tahlia McGrath has been named as the ICC Women's T20I Cricketer of the Year 2022. McGrath scored 435 runs in 16 matches at an average of 62.14 and claimed 13 wickets. She beat India opener Smriti Mandhana, Pakistan all-rounder Nida Dar and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine to win the ICC honours.
