Smriti Mandhana wins ICC 'Women's Cricketer' award

India vice-captain Smriti Mandhana was named 'Women's Cricketer of the Year'. She was also chosen as 'Women's ODI Player of the Year' by the ICC. 
She scored 669 runs in 12 ODIs along with 622 runs in 25 T20 Internationals in 2018.

Mandhana said: 'When you get acknowledged for your performances through these awards, it motivates you to work harder and do well for your team. "The century I scored in South Africa (in Kimberley) was quite satisfying and then I had good home series against Australia and England. A lot of people used to say I do not score that much in India, so I had a point to prove to myself'.
